Two years of Eric Gets Lost

A few of my favorite photos from the past year

TWO YEARS! I can’t believe I’ve been traveling for two full years already. This second year wasn’t the same whirlwind as my first year. I’ve spent most of it in either Minnesota or Texas at a much slower pace, which was needed.

But I’m ready for a change. I want to settle down again and take a break from being on the road full-time. Head down memory lane with me and read about what’s next.

Texas Bluebonnets

Muleshoe Bend Recreation Area – Spicewood, Texas – April 2024

It’s bluebonnet season here in Texas! On Wednesday I moved from one Airbnb to another, which meant I had a few hours to either work from a brewery or coffee shop—or find an adventure. Guess what I chose?! I drove about an hour out of Austin to the Muleshoe Bend Recreation Area where I found fields and fields of bluebonnets.

Volunteering at South by Southwest

South by Southwest – Austin, Texas – March 2024

Last week I volunteered at the Stateside Theatre for the South by Southwest Film & TV Festival here in Austin, managing lines, taking tickets, answering questions from attendees, and keeping people away from the red carpets. I also got up close to many, many celebrities. Hello, Ryan Gosling, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Susan Sarandon!

From Maine to Minnesota

Highlights of my journey from Maine to Minnesota – December 2023

I’m back in Minnesota for the rest of the year! After enjoying a peaceful month in coastal Maine, I made the return trip to Minnesota a five-day adventure—spending nights in Boston, Syracuse, Cleveland, and Chicago. I stopped in Buffalo, New York to check out the Peace Bridge to Canada. I was very tempted to drive over that bridge and continue 1.5 hours to Toronto to begin my 3-month adventure again, but it’s great to be back with family in Minnesota.

Acadia National Park

Acadia National Park – Mount Desert Island, Maine – November 2023

Acadia National Park is only 15 minutes from the place I’m staying in Maine this month, and I’ve visited the park several times. It’s one of the country’s most popular national parks but is very quiet in November. Perfect! With 26 mountains, 32 historic bridges, and 45 miles of rustic carriage roads, there is always something new to explore in Acadia.

November in Maine

Seal Harbor Beach – Mount Desert Island, Maine – November 2023

I’m enjoying November staying at a beautiful loft apartment in the woods of Trenton, Maine, a few blocks from the ocean and only 15 minutes from Acadia National Park. Most of the tourists have left until next May—which means a lot of stores and restaurants are closed—but it’s been so peaceful and quiet for those of us who are still here.

Vermont Is dreamy

Overlooking the Lake Champlain Valley from Mount Philo – Charlotte, Vermont – October 2023

I’ve been wanting to get to Vermont for a long time because it combines two things I love but don’t usually find at the same time: rural and liberal. Vermont also tops lists of states with the best fall colors, so I knew I had to get here this autumn. As my time in Vermont comes to an end, I’m reflecting on another wonderful month on the road.

An incredible weekend in Montréal

Montréal, Québec – October 2023

I’m back in the United States! My October can’t get much better than this: spending prime fall color month in beautiful Burlington, Vermont, another new-to-me state. I need to get through a full weekend of photo excursions before I post anything from here. (Spoiler alert: everywhere I look the views are unreal.) On my way from Toronto to Burlington, I spent an incredible weekend hanging out with a new friend in Montréal.
