design aglow diaries: rest stops & open roads

 

What happens when your car shipper (who shall remain nameless) completely bails out on you? Two amazing friends (and fantastic photographers) volunteer to take your car on a road trip from Florida to Oregon. Day 1 for the Pogos begins... Our goal: get out of Florida. Actually, get out of the states we've driven through before, and get through the behemoth that is Texas; we want to see desert, we want to see something we haven't seen before. So we left in the middle of the night and traded off driving/napping for the first 12 hours. Starbucks factored into this day quite a bit, especially given how few of them are along this road. (The app iExit is amazing for this kind of thing.) Stopped for gas and because it was insanely foggy. (I kept blinking to clear my bleary eyes, but that wasn't the problem.) Kept going; fog cleared up. Traded off driving in Tallahassee at sunrise. Found some amusing rest areas along the way. We have this road trip thing down to a science. We made it to Dallas around 9 pm, and had an enormous dinner before crawling into bed and passing out. Next goal: Albuquerque. Which should be a more interesting day based on both of us being awake for the whole drive. :-) Xoxo Emily, Pogo Photo Remember to follow the #designaglowdiaries hashtag to see our adventures!

I recently travelled to Banff, Alberta on a spontaneous trip with another filmmaker, Mike, and we spent one week exploring around the national park. The trip was planned a week before we left. My friend flew from LA and met me in Vancouver and we began our 10 hour road trip.I recently travelled to Banff, Alberta on a spontaneous trip with another filmmaker, Mike, and we spent one week exploring around the national park. The trip was planned a week before we left. My friend flew from LA and met me in Vancouver and we began our 10 hour road trip.
