Please accept my apologies for not posting in two weeks. I recently took an all girls road trip to New Orleans for the 2018 Essence Festival from July 4th through July 10th. Prepping before and getting settled after my trip took up way more of my time than I anticipated. But I am back, although I am going on another trip this week, but I digress lol! Here is all about my first trip to NOLA:
On the evening of Wednesday, July 4th myself and 5 other girlfriends took a road trip from Maryland to New Orleans, Louisiana. We arrived during the day on July 5th. Yes, it was a long road trip but I actually enjoyed seeing the houses in the mountains of Tennessee and seeing all the other picturesque scenes along this route. In the past, I have been on road trips along the east coast, however, I have never been on a road trip heading in the direction of NOLA.
During our first night in NOLA we bar hopped along the infamous Bourbon Street. On day 2 of our trip, I got to link up with one of my closest friends from college and her cousin when we went to the convention center to experience the scheduled Essence Festival activities. Essence Festival is one of those things you should definitely experience at least once in your lifetime. There were vendors, music, and events galore. Definitely right up my alley 🙂
While in NOLA, I also got to experience the food which included lots of seafood. (I am pescatarian but I eat like a vegetarian 90% of the time for those of you who didn’t know.)
Check out the footage from my trip below:
I had a good time in New Orleans. I cannot wait to go back because there is soo much more I want to experience and do. Next time I want to at least go to one of the concerts.
I would love to hear from you. Comment below, where are you going for your next vacation?
Remember you only have one life to live, so live it be-U-tifully by being you to the fullest.
Peace & Love,
