Take Me Back: New Orleans

New Orleans was a trip I kind of hijacked. My dad was going there for a business trip and my mom was going to go with him. But it lined up with my freshman year spring break. So they took me with them, and said that I could share my hotel room with a friend if I’d like.

Talk about a spring break for the books.IMG_3153IMG_3188

 

I could make a five page list of things to do in New Orleans, but I don’t think that’s the way to do it. We actually found most everything by walking around. The storefronts are amazing, there are a ton of little hole in the wall places. There are street performers all over the place and the food was amazing. And though I can’t give you a direct list of all the things I will say that these places to eat are a must:  Brennen’s Restaurant for dinner or lunch, or every meal the entire week. You need to make reservations though! Also  Cafe Du Monde for beignets. It’s very important, their is powder sugar lining the streets, I don’t know if you can say you went to New Orleans without eating at least one! (though I had more than that).

We went over Saint Patrick’s day which ended up being perfect, because there was a mini Mardi Gras parade, beads and all. So I got the full New Orleans experience without the huge amounts of crowds and, well, the streets weren’t so disgusting. You know how big cites are.IMG_3189IMG_3120
