Ariana & Dan’s Road Trip of Love – Wild in New Orleans!

We left Nashville and begun our drive down to New Orleans. This journey involved passage through two other states, Alabama and Mississippi, both of which saw me take a total of ZERO photos! “Nothing to see here, folks!” I was just so excited to get to New Orleans.

So, what can you really say about New Orleans? Well, one thing I can say is there is a solid 18 hours I can’t account for… Too drunk or hungover tired from all the driving…

New Orleans is a crazy city. It has a creepy vibe. It’s FULL of freaks. You can be drunk at 9am and nobody cares. It’s great! Well, it’s weird… It rains a lot, it smells a little lot, the food has strange ingredients but tastes great, it looks like Europe, but it’s full of Americans and it’s hot and HUMID (take A LOT of hairspray) … But it’s still great!

Everyone knows about New Orleans, so there’s not much point saying,

“Go to Bourbon Street”

or, “Eat gumbo, po’ boys and jambalaya”

…because, why wouldn’t you?

I can tell you The Hotel Monteleone on Royal Street is luxxx. I felt like I was in Italy and they offer an A M A Z I N G discount for US Military.

I can tell you if you’re a fan of the movie ‘Double Jeopardy’ (Ashley Judd kicking her cheating husband’s arse) then you will recognise the cemetery from the scene where he locks her in the coffin, and you will have a momentary fan-girl freak out like I did.

I can tell you that The Ruby Slipper Cafe has the best breakfast that may or may not cure a hangover AND Napoleon House has the best lunches and dinners. I would go back to New Orleans just to eat at these two places. Without a second thought.

I can tell you that The Cats Meow is the bossest bar on Bourbon Street that gets WILD. Wild like I saw a midget sing Karaoke there! – and the Hurricane Cocktail is deadly.

And finally, I can tell you that if you love country music and potent shots that you take from between the bar-girl’s HUGE boobs, then go to The Bourbon Cowboy!!!!!

New Orleans gave me the strangest 52 hours of my life… I saw a grown man in fishnets and leather underwear walking down the street wearing a ball-gag at 2pm… but, I will be back.

PS. Beignets at the Cafe Du Monde are everything. EVERYTHING!
