My NoLA Photodiary

St Louis Cathedral in New Orleans
Every year I make it a goal to visit one new country and one new state. in 2015 I ticked off the country with South Africa but as the end of the year loomed I hadn’t been to a new state yet. What’s a type-a girl who needs her goals met to do? Plan a last minute birthday weekend trip with her beau!

We chose to go in December, straddling our 5 day apart birthdays, hoping to flee what should have been a chilly mid-atlantic winter. While DC hadn’t been cold New Orleans turned out to be the perfect mid-month respite from all things holiday and festive; a trip to focus on us and enjoy the celebration of our birthdays. Here’s a peak into some of my favorite images we snapped on our trip:
QSS in New Orleans
New Orleans Street performers
Brunch at Criollo in New Orleans
Classic Beignets in New Orleans

We loved being able to walk around with our drinks in hand all over New Orleans. We did the classic “Hurricanes” and Long Island Iced Teas the first day but we’re not keen on sweets so we swapped for beer, mimosas, or negronis for the rest of the trip.

We also loved all the great food! From our Birthday Brunch at Criollo to the ubiquitous beignets, we were never starving or undersatiated. Even in December the city was alive with drinks and food and so many people. It was such a great experience to get away and explore a new culture that is Franco-American in so many ways.
