A little bit of French, Cajun & Voodoo…

We wanted to make the most of Adam’s week off so I booked a night in New Orleans. For us, New Orleans is only a couple of hours away, which is quite cool. A trip to New Orleans also means that we get to be in three States in the space of 2 hours; Alabama, Missisippi and Louisiana.

I had read quite a lot about the French Quarter and quite fancied staying over somewhere near this area. The architecture in the guide books was lush and it looked like a quaint little village rather than a large city! I managed to find a guest house, right on Bourbon St, which seemed to be the main street running through the French Quarter. We arrived, parked up and were amazed by the building straight away. Vintage tiled floors, a grand staircase and delicate wrought iron external fixings. Lafitte Guest House was easy to get to and even easier to check in.  Our room wasn’t ready straight away as we had arrived quite early.  The man at the desk recommended that we tried a place a few doors down for the best Po-Boys in town.

We’re Off to Alabama!

Soooooo……in ten days we are jetting off to start a little American adventure! 😀

Adam has been seconded to Mobile, Alabama to share his expertise…..it sounds very swish and fancy!

I will be going with him but due to visa restrictions, I can’t work…… oh dear!

We have everything just about ready and we now need to pack.  We have decided to stick to one suitcase each and anything else we need, we can buy it over in the States.

We love exploring, so we will be blogging about most things we do/visit.  Enjoy keeping in touch with us!
