I’ve been all around the world including Easter Island and Seychelles, but I’ve never been to New Orleans. However, this week a friend who is working there on a project got some time off and convinced me (with little actual convincing) to come down and spend a couple days. I know it is hot there right now, but weather doesn’t bother me. I plan to hang out and eat some good food and I know there are so many options in New Orleans.

French Quarter, here I come!

So please feel free to share your “must-do” New Orleans experiences and if you want to follow my travels as they happen, make sure you follow me on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

In the meantime, I’ll be re-reading our Destination of the Week: New Orleans guide as a primer for the city, but as always I really value reader recommendations!
