Falling in Love with the Crescent City – New Orleans, 2019

Falling in Love with the Crescent City – New Orleans, 2019

Ah, New Orleans.

I had hoped it would live up to all my dreams and expectations, and I am pleased to say – spoiler alert – it did by a landslide. Over the course of our time there, we had so many adventures that all added up into one of my all-time favourite trips. In 2019, I turned 30, and I knew I wanted to celebrate New Orleans-style, so my best friend Brit and I hopped on a flight, took a side trip to Houston, and then spent several days wandering the Crescent City streets. This post actually covers most of what we did, in mostly random order, over the course of our 5 nights there. Without further ado, here’s what we got up to in New Orleans!

The Final Frontier – Exploring NASA in Houston

The Final Frontier – Exploring NASA in Houston

For our perfect New Orleans/Houston getaway, we knew that we wanted to see NASA. It’s been Brit’s dream to visit real life NASA for far longer than I’ve even known her. As a fellow space enthusiast I was only too happy to help make her dream happen.

Here’s what we got up to in Houston!

New Orleans & Houston, 2019 – Intro

New Orleans & Houston, 2019 – Intro

Looking back, it’s impossible for me to pinpoint when my love of New Orleans first blossomed, or what exactly drew me to it. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by the cultural, architectural, and musical aspects of the Crescent City. I just felt I had to experience that city for my 30th birthday, and luckily, my travel partner in crime, Brit, was more than game to go, too. Brit’s request was adding in a side trip to NASA, one my space-loving self was only too eager to add to the list.

Here’s a quick sneak peek of what we got up to on our trip!

2019 Travel Plans

2019 Travel Plans

Ha, what a joke to post a 2019 travel plan post in 2021, but alas, when mental health strikes you down, sometimes that’s the way it works. I decided to still post this, as I wanted to look back later on and recall what I had hoped to accomplish vs what actually happened. After all, I didn’t do one for 2018, and I sort of regret that. Without further ado, here is my part-lookback slight revisionist plan for 2019!

My 10 Favourite Pictures in 2018

My 10 Favourite Pictures in 2018

2018 was more or less a static year in my life. Highs included a Toronto weekend trip for my best friend Brit’s birthday (see posts here and here). There weren’t too many lows, however the job I moved to the Toronto area for fell through pretty quickly. I realized quite early on that I wasn’t the right fit for the job, and neither was the job the right fit for me. Still, that took me on a new path to Kitchener, ON, where I made new friends and found my way back to myself little by little.

Looking back on my adventures, I’ve selected my ten favourite pictures I took in 2018. The pictures are in chronological order!
