New Orleans

New Orleans is one of the best trips I have had in a long time. Traveling there with my brother, my boyfriend and his brother, and our good friend was exciting, comfortable, hilarious, and real. We made the most of each day and night, fitting in at least five restaurants and bars, along with two music shows. A swamp tour fit its way in a day and we even travelled outside of the city to Pho Tau Bay which was featured on The Layover. Unfortunately, I brought my camera only to the Cemetery, so the rest of the photos are from the handy 4s. Regardless, enjoy a (food) tour through N’awlins!

But mostly my love goes out to the people of the city who were so amazingly welcoming, kind, helpful, fun, and some of the best spirits and hearts I’ve experienced in an unknown city. Love you N’awlins! We will see you again.

Cheers! -L
