We:30 Share & Tell: Samantha Brings Memories from Her Cross-Country Trip
Every Wednesday at 3:30 we get together to celebrate an employee who exemplifies our core values to inspire, share, evolve, exceed and be 100% jerk-free. Our Share & Tell edition invites an employee to share something that inspires them and has a unique story. This week Samantha, our Social Media Intern, brings her memories from her cross-country road trip!
During the summer of 2013, I took an unforgettable 40-day, 33-state cross-country road trip. Before the trip, I'd only visited a few states other than my home state of California. But 10,000 miles later, I couldn't believe I'd set foot on more than half the U.S.
Exploring America definitely made me realize how diverse and cultural California is. Although, nothing back home compared to the amazing crawfish, red beans & rice and jambalaya in New Orleans. The trip also developed my interest in country music. Prior to the trip, I hadn't really given country music a chance, but after being exploring this beautiful country by car, nothing resonated more with being on the road than jamming to "Dirt Road Anthem" by Jason Aldean.
The trip inspired me to want to travel more and explore what the world has to offer. I'd definitely recommend taking a trip like this, I'll never forget it!
