I am excited to share our itinerary for our American Road Trip! My girlfriend Cindy has spent the last 2 years in East Lansing, Michigan studying her Ph.D. in Vietnamese Colonial History– and has recently got accepted into UC Berkeley’s Ph.D. program in the same field. So we are packing our bags, and loading them into our Ford Fiesta and heading West!
We plan on taking around 2 weeks for the entire trip (making stops along the way in the places below):
- Start: East Lansing, Michigan
- Indianapolis, Indiana
- Louisville, Kentucky
- Nashville, Tennessee
- Birmingham, Alabama
- New Orleans, Louisiana
- Houston, Texas
- Austin, Texas
- Fort Worth, Texas
- Albuquerque, New Mexico
- Grand Canyon (Hiking)
- End: Southern California (before we head up to Berkeley)

American Street Photography Project
If you haven’t heard, I recently got hooked up with a 2014 Ford Fiesta and am getting free gas/insurance for the next 8 months. I have always wanted to do some sort of “Americans” street photography project (similar to the spirit of Robert Frank) but always transportation/gas was an issue.
So now I have no more excuses! So hopefully I will try to get some good photos along this road trip– and also continue to photograph my project even after I have arrived in Berkeley (after all, I have 8 months in total to work on this project).
Below is an interactive map to see all the destinations we will hit up during our road trip!
