Summer is upon us and there’s nothing like a road trip to kick start the season. As many of you may already know, I am Amanda, abduzeedo’s cousin. I live in Raleigh, North Carolina and for the past two years my cousin has been staying here with me during the summers.

Last year we ventured to the great city of Chicago, but this year we had so much more on our agenda. Fabio arrived June 8th, and as the morning of June 9th neared, we took off. We visited our nation’s capital, the city of brotherly love, and the big apple – Washington D.C., Philadelphia, and New York City. During our stay in New York, we had the pleasure of meeting fellow designer Grant Friedman, most commonly known as Mr. Colorburned, and we also hit up the streets of Brooklyn with BK native himself, Tarek Ahmed, or Mr. Joomp.

We are now back in Raleigh but you can rest assured we’re not done yet. The summer has just begun and we have a lot of ground left to cover! Next on the agenda is a quick jump to St. Petersburg, Florida. Fabio will be speaking at the Front-End Design Conference on July 31st, and I, of course, will be going with for moral support… and so he won’t have to ride the roller coasters at Busch Gardens alone ;) There is still time to buy tickets and trust me when I say that this isn’t something you’d want to miss out on… a little birdie told me there will be some abduzeedo freebies given out during the conference ;)

Tickets can be purchased here: http://frontenddesignconference.com/I’m looking forward to meeting lots of designers and Abduzeedo readers so I hope to see you all out there!
