All My Bags Are Packed…

January 12, 2018 2 min read No Comments

Okay it is time to talk about something a little crazy!

Have you ever wanted to just get away from your everyday life? Or wanted to just pick up and move away? Well I am planning to do a bit of both of those!

If you are like me (and if you are reading this I am assuming you can relate me at least a little) you find a thrill in traveling, you get excited just thinking about new places and you are always making lists of places that you want to go. This thought process takes over about 80% of my brain processing everyday!0171ef_5cb73e1e9d0d4cfa9cf246aebd074f50~mv2_d_4220_2329_s_2

I am starting to plan an adventure that is going to be the second longest I have ever taken! I am going to move (temporarily) to New Orleans, NOLA, for about 4-6 weeks. I have always been obsessed with NOLA, in movies and pictures the entire feel for the city was something that was out of a fairy tale, streets filled with music, laughter, color, different languages, and a gathering place for world history!

As with any trip there is the planning period – though for this it is difficult because I don’t have a timeline of when I am actually going to take this trip….I know I want to take it…but I don’t know when.

That is the problem with travel always being on the brain…you have all of these places you want to go but there never seems to be enough time in your life to do all the trips you want to do! 0171ef_25cc2debeb364aa191337ff798472525~mv2_d_4800_3200_s_4_2

All I know is that I want to have endless days of wandering the streets just taking in the sights, sounds, tastes of New Orleans. The one afternoon I had in the “big easy” wasn’t nearly long enough to take in such a vibrant and vivacious city.

More updates to come as I continue to build and plan this trip!
