How to spend two perfect days in New Orleans, Part 3

Finally, were on Day 2 of my trip to NOLA. If you’ve just tuned in, I’ve got Part 1 & Part 2 waiting for you. On our second and last full day in Louisiana, we drove to Vacherie to tour the Oak Alley Plantation. It is roughly an hour away from New Orleans, which wasn’t too bad. The best part about us driving is that it allowed us to explore other parts of Lousiana without having to pay extra for the transportation. We arrived at the plantation early in the morning,  ...

How to spend two perfect days in New Orleans, Part 2

After enjoying our time in the Garden District, we made a beeline for the oldest neighborhood in New Orleans, French Quarter, also known as Vieux Carré. Parking was a daunting task. We had to park all the way at the end of Royal Street, which was kind of far from where all the action is.

Gloomy weather, dozens of tasty food options, coffee shops at every corner and the fact that waterfalls, rainforests, lakes, coastlines & snow capped mountains are well within grasp. Known as the Evergreen State (they weren’t kidding),  ...

Photo Diary: Grand Teton National Park

A few months ago we made another epic trip to my favorite national park, Yellowstone. Our trip always includes an overnight stay at Salt Lake City because there’s just no way we’re going to drive 12 hours straight from Vegas. From SLC, James and I opted to take another route. Instead of driving through Montana to the West Entrance, we decided to drive to Jackson,Wyoming hoping to spend a few hours in Grand Teton National Park. Grand Teton is the lesser known but not less  ...

Why I love Oregon: Bites & Sights

About the same time last year, we took a little road trip to Oregon and Washington. Yes, another road trip! Isn’t it obvious by now how much we enjoy road trips? Anyway, can I just say how much I love the Pacific Northwest? I love it so much that at one point, my husband and I were talking about moving to either Washington or Oregon. Maybe in the future we’ll discuss it again. Who knows? But in the mean time, let me reminisce through this blog post. Although our visit was short,  ...
