Yeah, I'm overdue for a getaway!
I recently visited New Orleans for only 48 hrs and I remembered how much I liked to travel. I've been married to my routines, the job, the housework, I had forgotten how much fun a simple getaway can be! New Orleans is like candy for the senses--so laid back and casual--much like Houston in that regard. I did stroll down Bourbon Street and a sudden sense of happiness came over me as I donned a feather boa and took pictures.. And I found family friendly places and entertainment in New Orleans.
Which tells you that YES! You can have a good time and stay sober in The Big Easy. For the first 18 years of my life I never went anywhere except Disneyland, MajicMountain, Fresno and a brief trip to San Francisco in grade school. Mostly just schooltrips with the band. But if it weren't for my music I wouldn't have been able to be in band or even travel locally. Once I was a legal adult I jumped at every chance to travel. Entered the military for education and got to Germany by way of New Jersey, San Antonio, and Louisianna. I'd love to show my kids the world.
