A Weekend in the Big Easy

11 June 2015

There is no place in the world like New Orleans. The mix of foreign and southern history creates a unique culture that can not be found anywhere else. It is easy to lose yourself in the idea of New Orleans: drinking on Bourbon Street, Voodoo shops in the Quarter, and fresh oysters straight from the Gulf. But  trust me when I say the city itself has so much more to offer than images portrayed in television or in books. 

Our weekend didn't go exactly as planned. What was supposed to be a girls weekend with my old college roommates turned into a traveling nightmare. Our trip happened to coincide with one of the worst flooding seasons in Texas history, turing a trip for four into a trip for two. I was fortunate I reached New Orleans without a single delay or canceled flight. It was a miracle actually since Houston had been hit so hard by flood waters. I met up with the only other friend that could make it for a weekend of sightseeing and exploring. 

New Orleans is one of my favorite cities in America. I had only been once before but this trip just confirmed my love for this vibrant and exciting city. I managed to leave the Big Easy with over 700 photos (I was there for no more than 48 hours mind you). I have so much to say and so much to share so don't be surprised when you see photos from my trip for awhile her on this little blog. 

Happy Thursday!
