I just got back from the most amazing week away!

I caught a bus from Manhattan to Washington, D.C. for three nights. We went to Mt. Vernon which was George Washington’s house which was very beautiful and it snowed outside. We also went to The White House and The Smithsonian Museum.

Then we flew to New Orleans in Louisiana, which was AMAZING!! We stayed in the French Quarter in an Airbnb for four nights. NOLA has the most amazing food; my favourite was shrimp and grits and the famous Beignets at Café Du Monde! We went there every single morning!! What an incredible place full of colour and culture.

The Creol architecture is amazing and the people are so lively. We went on a city bus tour and to the Oak Alley Planation and The Laura Creol Plantation as well.

Such amazing history and also beautiful and warm!! I Would definitely recommend travelling to NOLA!!
