I apologize for it being so long without a new blog there for a while, but I have been so busy and I recently just came back from New Orleans! The trip went great and if I'm honest, I didn't even want to leave. The weather was great, the people were so nice and unique, and the buildings were filled with so much fascinating history! Other than Ann Arbor, New Orleans is the first city I've visited and as soon as I stepped foot through the French Quarter, I absolutly fell in love!
The plane ride there was actually my very first time flying on a commercial airplane and it definitely was an interesting experience! I got sketched out as we were taking off and hitting turbulence, but I eventually got the hang of it and I was a-okay on the flight home!
I was absolutly ecstatic to be able to check TWO things off my bucket list on this trip! That includes seeing the "American Horror Story: Coven" Mansion- which is called "Miss Robichaux's Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies" in the show, and also seeing the "Voodoo Queen" Marie Laveau's grave (which is also in AHS)! It was just the most incredible thing and I am so thankful I was able to actually go see these two fascinating things that I've always dreamt of seeing!
I will make two other blogs talking more about the cemetery I visited while I was in NOLA and another one that is concentrated more on the beautiful French Quarter so keep an eye out for those! But honestly other than visiting the places on my bucket list, walking through the French Quarter was hands down my absolute favorite! There are so many incredible sightings to see and every building you pass is so old and pretty much filled with so much history from tons of years ago. New Orleans is the dirtiest city in the U.S. and pretty much built by fellons but I think that's what I love the most about it. Yes, it can certainly be extremely dangerous at times but then again what city isn't? I don't try to let things like that scare me; New Orleans is honestly my favorite place that I've ever visited in my entire life and I have never been more fascinated and eager to learn more about a cities history and culture, like I have with New Orleans!
Thank you so much for reading & I hope that you get to visit New Orleans at some point in your life because it truly is a remarkable place!
