New Orleans: Part One

I planned to share everything in one post but I took over 800(!) photos and there’s no way to narrow it down to one post. 

I just got back from a long weekend trip to New Orleans and wanted to share a lot some photos. NOLA is a place I wanted to visit for a while. I had three things on the agenda for this trip: Alligators, VooDoo, and Beignets.

Gotta get a shot of the clouds while on the plane. #basic

On the first day we went to New Orleans Historic Voodoo Museum.  The museum is small so you won’t spend a lot of time there. It takes about 15-20 minutes to get through all the rooms.

Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau


In each room you will see various offers left by visitors. Leave a blessing to receive a blessing.

We happened upon the Louis Armstrong Park while trying to find Jackson Square. Just to let you know, they are in total opposite directions. But that’s the good thing about New Orleans, you can discover happy accidents.

When you first walk in you see this sculpture. First it appears to be very narrow but as you continue to move, the dimensions of the sculpture changes.


Jackson Square – we finally made it.

Cafe Du Monde was a must visit for this trip.

The streetcar is the best way to get around New Orleans.

You can get a pass for $3 and it’s good for 24 hours from the time you bought it.

Back with Part Two tomorrow!
