Arriving in New Orleans – Beignets, Cocktails and Jazz on Frenchman Street

We had just arrived in NYC and it was already time for us to pack our bags and head to our next adventure…

Which was all fine by me as we were heading to New Orleans with the firm intention to try all the Creole & Cajun food, drink the best cocktails the city had to offer and listen to the best jazz concerts. Which is pretty much exactly what we did!

We jumped off the plane and onto a bus, and off to Café du Monde we went! Cake + Whisky | Travel Guide to New Orleans | Café du MondeCake + Whisky | Travel Guide to New Orleans | Café du MondeCake + Whisky | Travel Guide to New Orleans | Café du MondeEveryone raves about it and I can definitely see why!
