Introduction - Anna

By Anna Nord. May 16, 2017

My name is Anna Nord and I fell in love with a neon pink beach cruiser at the ripe age of 14.

The bike weighed over 40 lbs (nearly half my weight back then), with tire so thick that it glided across the sand. That bike took me everywhere. Well, everywhere my mom would let me ride.

I grew up in Atlantic Beach, Florida, which for the most part, is fairly easy to navigate by bike. The...

Introduction- Miller

Hi! My name is Miller and I am a third year Civil Engineering undergrad. I grew up in Marietta, just outside of the perimeter. Growing up in the suburbs meant that the only way to get around was by car, so I have rarely used any form of public transportation. My first introduction to a good public transportation came when I visited Boston. I traveled through much of the city and some surrounding suburbs without ever being more than a short walk from a subway stop. This experience opened my eyes to how useful public transport can be and how lacking it is in Atlanta. It felt like...

Introduction Blog Post- Spencer

By Spencer Maddox May 16, 2017

Hello, my name is Spencer Maddox, and my third year at Tech will start in the fall. I grew up in Kennesaw, Georgia about 30 miles north of Georgia Tech's campus. The only effective way to get around in Kennesaw is by car. The public transportation system is almost nonexistent and bike friendly travel ways and bike share facilities have only recently been added. 

Being from the Metro-Atlanta area, I have experienced the terrible traffic first hand. This semester, since I live right off of campus, I have started to use...

I Bike Holand

by Annie Blissit, May 15, 2017

Hi, I’m Annie! I am a water engineer and part-time M.S. student in the Environmental Engineering program. You may be wondering what a water engineer is doing in a transportation course in the Netherlands…honestly, I happened across the opportunity when trying to find a summer elective but it couldn’t have been a better coincidence! I read about Dr. Watkins’ trip in 2016 when my boyfriend Matt (who is actually a...

#GTDisasterRecon: Japan

Days 1 and 2:
Nonstop would be an understatement for how this day went. We left our airport in China at 6am to catch our flight to Tokyo. We arrived at Nairita airport at 3pm and only got to Tokyo at 6pm. After we dropped our bags off at the hotel it was 7pm — our day would finally begin. We decided to embark on a journey to climb Mt. Fuji in time to be at the top for sunrise. However, we hadn’t eaten the entire day and decided to stop at the most reliable food source of them all. McDonalds. After a quick happy meal, we left for Fuji.
