I work in a field where I am fortunate to travel about once a month, just for a night or two. And this week I had a chance to visit New Orleans for the first time! Given that it was a work trip, my time was limited, and my priority was NOT Bourbon Street, but I did get a chance to walk around and enjoy two really beautiful days (hence the radio silence here on the blog). My accomplishments included:
- Eating all of the things: gumbo, fresh redfish, beignets, and cafe au lait;
- Staring at the beautiful buildings (and thinking how much prettier they would be without all of the neon signs of Bourbon St);
- Walking by the St. Louis Cathedral, and sitting in the shade to watch some kids run around;
- Buying pralines to bring home to Nashville.
I took a few architecture snaps (below) but really spent my free time unplugging a bit!
What are some of your favorite cities for a quick visit?
