Hey! Anyone up for a road trip?

One of the things I plan to take full advantage of this summer, now that things are starting to kind of return to normal, is traveling, and often we take for granted that we live in a beautiful state where there are many fantastic places to eat, drink, shop and visit right here in Maine.

With this is mind, Natalie Williams and Eesha Pendharkar, from the Bangor Daily News, decided to hit the open road and take a trip, and with the help of their trusty dashcam, they documented it all in a time lapse style video that is pretty cool to watch.

It all starts at the gorgeous Piscataqua River Bridge, which is a through arch bridge that crosses the Piscataqua River, connecting Portsmouth, New Hampshire with Kittery, Maine, and carries six lanes of Interstate 95. Throughout the course of what I am sure was a very long day, the pair hit the towns of Ogunquit, Kennebunk, Biddeford, Portland, Bethel, Newry, Rumford, Farmington, Skowhegan, Newport, Hermon, Downtown Bangor, Dedham, Ellsworth, Steuben, Patten, Oxbow, Fort Kent, straight through a blizzard in Sinclair, Cross Lake Township, Caribou, Presque Isle, Houlton, and their final stop in Fort Kent.

I have to admit, when watching this time lapse video, I was a little surprised at how many of these places I have never been to. When I head out of Bangor, the extent of my Maine trips usually include Orono, Ellsworth, Bar Harbor and Portland, so I definitely need to broaden my horizons, start the car and head out on a Maine adventure of my own.
