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!

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!

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!

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!

2017 brought about a few massive changes, including a few emotional turning points in my life. Highs included my dad’s surgery yielding the best result possible, an amazing girls’ trip around Eastern Canada with Brit, and finding myself getting to spend more time with family. Lows included saying a heartbreaking farewell to our family dog, a truly beautiful spirit whose loss was devastating, and the self-realization that I was letting my happiness in life fade. Smack dab in the middle, complete with highs and lows – moving.
Looking back on my adventures, I’ve selected my ten favourite pictures I took in 2017. The pictures are in chronological order and – quick side note – not all were technically taken by me (thanks Brit!).
