A Slice Of New Orleans









I can't even start to describe how much fun we had in New Orleans. We drank too much, ate till we couldn't move and walked around the city hundreds of times. We had such a blast and coming home was definitely a bummer. We came home to chilly weather and a very early morning which didn't even bother me one bit considering I had one of the best trips of my life. I will be putting up a second installment of photos, but I figured I should space it out since I took so many. I wish I had more pictures of the night life, but as we all know if drinking is involved the camera stays tucked away in the hotel room. 

I must say beignets are even more delicious than I ever could have imagined. We had hurricanes and hand grenades from bourbon street, and pretty much every other drink you can think of. I missed traveling so much that I forgot how great it feels to be able to explore and wander, and have absolutely no plans. Bourbon street at night is the craziest place to be on earth. Picture the biggest frat party, multiply that by 10, and then add in bachelorette parties, drunk old people, rugby teams, locals, and an open container policy (you can walk around with drinks from bar to bar, or in the street). PURE INSANITY.

I still have pictures from the insectarium & some other local photos that I took while walking around. It's been a whirlwind of a week, but I am so happy it's almost over. My body still needs to catch up on sleep, and get back to the reality that is life. Spring break for me pretty much means working all week, so gotta keep going! 

Happy Thursday! xo

  1. Isn't NOLA the best?! I seriously love it there! It's party city all day long. At first I was super shocked you could walk around everywhere with a drink in hand but by the time we left I was one of those people. Did you take a carriage ride? Our group didn't want to this past time but I have many years ago. Fun!
