Guys! In one month, I’m leaving on my cross-country train trip! I am SO EXCITED for this! Here’s where I’ll be going:
I’m leaving Pittsburgh and heading westbound: Pittsburgh -> Chicago -> Omaha -> Salt Lake City -> Sacramento -> Portland -> Essex -> Chicago -> NYC. Overall, the trip will take me 2 weeks from leaving Pittsburgh to arriving in New York. I’ll be seeing friends in Chicago and in Omaha, and otherwise traveling by myself. I’m really excited, though, to see a whole new part of the United States, including traveling to or through 8 states that are new to me!
I’ll be blogging along the way, and you can read all about my trip right here on Isn’t That Grad or by following #AliyahByTrain on Twitter. Have suggestions of cool places I can visit at any of my stops (Chicago, Omaha, Salt Lake City, Sacramento, or Portland)? Tweet at me using the same hashtag to let me know!
And stay tuned for a couple more preview posts before I hit the
road tracks on December 15th!
Help us do science! I’ve teamed up with researcher Paige Brown Jarreau to create a survey of Isn’t That Grad readers. By participating, you’ll be helping me improve Isn’t That Grad and contributing to SCIENCE on blog readership. You will also get FREE science art from Paige’s Photography for participating, as well as a chance to win a t-shirt and other perks, like a $50 Amazon gift card! It should only take 10-15 minutes to complete. You can find the survey here: http://bit.ly/mysciblogreaders.
