I am finally getting around to sharing some of the pictures I took in New Orleans. If you haven’t been there yet, go! Like now. It’s so much fun and the food is flipping amazing.
Truth? I have never been somewhere where the culture was so apparent. Besides, the food, of course, my favorite part were the people. They’re, interesting, passionate, proud, musical, and know how to party. I’m also into that witchcraft stuff. I think it’s so fun and that’s eeeeeverywhere. So if you want to know how your life is going to pan out, visit New Orleans.
Double Chocolate Bread Pudding from the Red Fish Grill. We went there just for dessert. It’s that good.
Char Grilled Oysters from Acme. Hands down the best thing we ate there.
Pimm’s Cup from Carousel Bar and Lounge. We sat on an actual carousel that revolved and then we had to leave because my sister-in-law got motion sickness. haha, had to Lauren. Anyway, the Pimm’s Cup was absolutely delicious. It had strawberries, cucumbers, and bunch of other delicious fresh ingredients going on it.
Of course we had craw fish. So tasty! I would tell you what restaurant we were at, but I don’t where we ordered these.
Beignets from Cafe Du Monde. It’s crazy busy here, but so worth it, and the chicory coffee? Right on. You can purchase the coffee and also the beignet mix – it’s good!
Last but not least, the muffuletta, the original New Orleans Italian Sandwich and Vin’s favorite thing we ate in New Orleans. You get them at Central Grocery Co. I couldn’t find a website for the store, but here is an article from the Huffington Post about them. They’re huge – easily 2-4 people could share just one.
We also devoured Po Boys from Jonny’s Po-Boys. Our favorite was the Johnny’s Special, beef with grilled ham and swiss. I was on the floor, happy of course.
Ok on to some site seeing stuff!
We thoughts this house was cool so we took a few pictures in front of it!
We went on a cemetery tour – so crazy. If you ever visit New Orleans, do this!
This is Nicholas Cage’s tomb. This is where he wants to be buried when he passes. He fell in love with pyramids after filming National Treasure which is why he had it made in the shape of well…a pyramid!
Ok moving on from the graveyard. Truth? Awesome tour!
Here are a few pictures random pictures that I took. The orange house is where we stayed – it was absolutely beautiful! Love the color!
Beware, this hotel is haunted.
Since we were in New Orleans, we HAD to do a swamp tour, right? It was so fun! We saw tons of crocodiles. They aren’t necessarily afraid of humans so they pop up around the boats and just stare at you. Ah!
I never thought a swamp could be beautiful, but it truly was.
And there you have it! Our trip to New Orleans in a nutshell. It was one of my favorite vacations – the people, food, culture, and architecture were all amazing. We will definitely be going back…for those char grilled oysters at least.
