Nothing beats the aesthetically pleasing, beautiful colors of Fall.

New Orleans

Wings

Aha! I knew I’d catch your attention with some food!  Oh yes, this photo (and all the photos following) were taken from my iPhone, they tasted better than they looked!  These wings were from Daisy Dukes- I got a tip from a local, he said they were the best wings in New Orleans, and boy was he right!  (If you like them extra crispy, tell the waitress you’d like them “fried hot”!)

These chili cheese fries were also from Daisy Dukes, yum yum!  You are probably wondering why in the hell do I have no pictures of some of their delicious and famous seafood?!  I am sad to say, I’m not a huge fan of seafood.

Side note: I have no photos that will do it justice, but some of the best desserts are from Palace Cafe- in particular the white chocolate bread pudding, you will not be disappointed. (I actually have the recipe, long story, so just ask!)

Policemen on towering horses throughout Bourbon Street was interesting.  The French Quarter at night is so wonderful; you can get crazy walking in the streets with your oversized drink, bounce around to various bars (country music, hip hop, smooth and relaxing jazz, among many other “vibes”), or just spend a magical night taking a ride around the city in a carriage; this city has got it all, it’s fun and enjoyable for all ages.

One thing that made me *happy and feel at home* in New Orleans was how proud the locals were, they loved their city, and it showed; all guests were treated with hospitality, even the homeless were helping out the ridiculously drunk kids on the street… now that’s love!

Where can you eat some of the BEST CHOCOLATE COVERED KEY LIME PIE?!

Key west, key lime pie

Key West, USA!!!  My grandparents always spoke about how amazing the frozen key lime pie is in Key  West.  Luckily, I had the pleasure of visiting Key West in December, and had a chance to try the key lime pie myself!!  It was OUTSTANDING!!! There are plenty of shops that sell this delicious dessert in Key West, it’s not difficult to find!

conch train

**Bonus:  There’s a lot to do and see in Key West, and it can often be tiring.  If your feeling a little lazy and would like a ride around the WHOLE island then I would suggest to take a ride on the conch train!!  There is also a trolley that is similar to the conch train.

You can get on an off at any of the various stops that the conch train and trolley make, and then hop back on at your own convenience to see the rest of the island.  A new conch/trolley runs about every 20 minutes.

**Bonus:  There is also a BEAUTIFUL beach with crystal clear blue water.  The water is perfect for snorkeling, and many other water sports!!
