This time last year, I had been feeling rather frustrated with the daily routine that was my life. Don't get me wrong, I loved my job and the people I worked with, but I was longing for something more. I found myself constantly looking up destinations on Pinterest every chance I got. I dreamed of visiting these places, meeting new people and eating and drinking the local cuisine and beer.
Although I probably could have, I decided to not spend all of my time in the French Quarter. Instead, I went out and took a swamp tour and explored the Garden District where I even did a little beer tasting.
However, I also couldn't leave New Orleans and the French Quarter without exploring Bourbon Street, trying bananas foster and a few other things !
Fellow readers, I am soooooo sorry for the super late post! I recently flew to Europe for a few weeks and thought that I would be able to post from there, but between the jetlag and running around the streets of Europe you can see how it would be difficult to update the blog. Nevertheless, I am back and I promise to try harder to not go as long without blogging.
After Dallas I took the bus down to New Orleans for four days. I was very excited to visit this city since I knew it would be unlike any I had visited before. It was also the first city I would be visiting where I didn't know a single person, so I was a little nervous at the same time. I didn't know what to expect but between the southern food, live jazz on every corner and the historical locations, New Orleans did not disappoint.
During my visit I had the obligatory beinegts from Cafe du Monde, walked around the French Quarter and even caught a show at the legendary Preservation Hall.
