Anniversary Blog Fest: Dana Littlejohn
Dana Littlejohn here to share my experience when I took a trip in July to the lovely city of New Orleans, Louisiana. Beautiful city, fantastic food, rich culture and hotter than hell in the summer. It was a one of a kind experience.
My husband and I went for a week and stayed in one of those stay weekly hotels in Lafayette which was less than an hour away. It wasn’t one of the best places we have ever stayed, but it was clean, safe and came out way cheaper to stay than any hotel in New Orleans would have cost us. With the rental car and a complete kitchenette to cook our own food it was well worth it.
We settled in and decided to rest that first day, but the second we set out to explore Lafayette. It turned out to be a lovely city in its own right with friendly people and amazing food. I even ate gator and lived to tell the tale. LOL Although Lafayette was great I couldn’t wait until we went to New Orleans.
The next day we jumped in the car and was New Orleans bound. Along the way I saw swamps, bogs and, though I didn’t know what to expect since I had not seen the city pre-Katrina, I was stunned to see evidence of devastation after so long. We arrived in the city and did the tourist thing, walking around with our little map, mouths hanging open and pointing at everything we passed.
