&& lets go explore the streets of Bourbon

Yesterday we explored the streets of New Orleans.

Got luncha on the water, had some local brews, and obviously went to a Voodoo Shop.

The voodoo, who-do-what-you-dont-dare-do

&& We also made a stop into

the oldest bar in the country, called Lafittes Blacksmith Shop Bar

which opened in 1776 and has remained open ever since.

Then, we went out onto Bourbon Street for round II, which ended us up at The Cat’s Meow all night singing karaoke.

Oh and some Lutherans tried to save all the sinners on Bourbon.

myself included.

23 hours later,

We left Philadelphia at 20:00 and drove to Washington D.C. && had to pit stop for an hour since the rain was so bad. We arrived to deserted streets at 00:20 and set off in search of the White House. Found it, couldn’t take a picture since it was so dark, decided to leave && then drive all the way to New Orleans,

through 5 states, stopping for gas 5 times && driving for 19 hours,

&& arrived at 19:25 on Friday, July 20th.

Our path is set

Our path is set for our footsteps to follow. I cannot believe we leave in a couple of days!

So much left to do, so little time.

I added a picture our itinerary that I wrote down in my sketchbook journal. If anyone has any suggestions of where else to go or anything you can think of please let me know!
