More trip pictures!! And this time they are digital and I have a story and 'thank-you's to go with them. Ben and I were planning to take a road trip in the US for a while, we just had to decide where exactly to go. And when our friends invited us for their wedding in Georgia, it became clear that we'll head south! Neither Ben nor I have been to the southern states, so we took a week off work and planned to visit quite a few places. It didn't sound like the cheapest vacation ever but I got very lucky and won Southwest Airline tickets from Influenster! Yes, I know, it all sounds crazy, I've never won anything as awesome before, but it's true! They gave me a coupon for a roundtrip flight anywhere in the US! This definitely helped us not worrying about the seafood and coffee bills along the way.
The most memorable place on the whole Texas-Georgia route was definitely New Orleans, and Ben can second me on this for sure. I actually feel like Ben loved it even more than I did: he wanted to move there the first evening we arrived! Everything about NOLA is amazing: the air, the buildings, people, flowers, music, etc. Did I mention cute wooden street cars and lots of seafood? The city just feels so vibrant, colorful and creative! I wish there weren't hurricanes and similar disasters, it would have been heaven. But anyways, two days weren't enough and we're planning on coming back again in the future.
