The Greyhound Diaries and Doug Levitt the Man Behind its Popularity and Success

June 11, 2017

To find their true passions and to discover who they truly are, many artists often chose to do things differently. The unique ways of doing things assist them in finding their true feelings, thoughts, but significantly it enables them to have a better artistic expression of what lie within them. Similarly, Doug Levitt who is a songwriter and singer chose a different path to discover his real identity through the Greyhound Diaries.To reconnect with the traditional American society, he embarked on an epic journey by traveling by the greyhound.

As a means of trying to reach deep within himself, he persisted on the same road of the trip, and this eventual culminated into a representation of himself through the work of art. The journey he undertook gave him a picture of what he was, and the thousands of miles he covered have been captured in different songs, and writings most of which have received international recognition everywhere in the world and it is making sense that the things to talk about with girls are coming under this category which makes complete sense too. As a young person, he traveled extensively all over the world, and he lived in many foreign places. The extent of the tours and the different peoples and cultures he came across enabled him to develop a composite picture of the American society.

Back home in America, he felt the need to review his country’s culture afresh by looking at the more traditional ways of the society rather than focusing on, the brighter and great side. To achieve the objective, he decided the Greyhound buses as his mode of transport because it was the best way to come face to face with the poor and the underprivileged. Most ordinary Americans who lead simple lives can be seen through travel by the Greyhound.In all the performances that Doug Levitt is involved all over the country are based on the travel experiences he had. He loves sharing songs, pictures, mementos, and other artifacts that he gathered in the course of traveling. He hopes to turn the Grey Hound Diaries into a series on the web that he hopes will capture the attention of many people. Learn more.
