Having had more than our fair share of fried chicken, gumbo and bread pudding, we were in the mood for some more cultural discoveries so headed to the Voodoo museum.Cake + Whisky | Travel Guide to New Orleans | Voodoo museumCake + Whisky | Travel Guide to New Orleans | Voodoo museumCake + Whisky | Travel Guide to New Orleans | Voodoo museumCake + Whisky | Travel Guide to New Orleans | Voodoo museumBeing just a few rooms big, it’s a fairly small affair, but I discovered a completely new world, full of ghosts and spirits. Spooky!

We topped the day off with more wandering around in the lookout for yet more pretty houses/doors/streets…

    That food looks amazing! And yes, dessert uses different stomach space 😉 I’d love to go to New Orleans, it looks like such a cool place.
