The Social Media Train Experience ~ Homage to #HootTrak

By Connor Meakin • 1 year ago • 1 Comments

In case you missed it, HootSuite sent one lone Owl on a train journey from Vancouver, Canada down to Austin, Texas for SXSW. I spent five timeless days aboard Amtrak’s trains meeting new friends, exchanging stories and collecting more than a few mementos.

Lucky for you, the cameras were rolling, capturing the scenery and people I met throughout the trip. Part way through my journey, I had the fortune of meeting up with Eric White: writer and filmmaker from The Glass Duffle. Together, we worked on this video to represent the the train experience. So sit back, relax, and enjoy these highlights from the adventure that was #HootTrak.

From the heartwarming staff who made the trip a breeze, to the fellow train goers with inspiring stories, I hope that this video will give you a glimpse into my time living life on the train.

Catch up on the whole trip:
