‘This above all, to thine own self be true.’ – Shakespeare
Happy New Year! A dream came true this week – I, finally, made it to New Orleans. Needless to say, I’ve fallen in love with this city and its wonderful vibe in the French Quarter – so enjoyed the diverse styles and incredible talent in such a small space.
I feel like if you look a little deeper a rich and full history is easily found wherever we are landing. I tried some drinks I’ve never heard of like the Hurricane and Voodoo – worth a taste and I’m getting into the foods. I love the Cajun spices or Tex-Mex! We did a river cruise on New Year’s Eve day, so I was able to ride on a paddle-wheeler in the Mississippi – awesome!
and Jungle Gardens on New Year’s Day – all closed, but still glad I got a glimpse! Really want to come back to this region.
Now, we are in the Lone Star State of Texas.
Our first few nights were spent near Columbus, Texas. A town rich with Texan history and gorgeous buildings, but lacking in a café that’s open on a Saturday.
We are now just outside San Antonio and tomorrow, we will start to explore around here for this next week before we heard further West.
So much to see and do! What is your favourite story of the West?
