Hello from rainy Los Angeles! Yes, I mean rainy. We’ve been having a proper winter this year, with temperatures dropping into the low 30s, and inches and inches of rain. While I wouldn’t want this weather to last months, I have been enjoying the excuse to hibernate at home, and as future travel plan
In honor of Fat Tuesday next week, a post about one of my favorite places: New Orleans. I’ve written quite a lot about New Orleans, so you might be thinking: What else is there?

Time flies… January is coming to a close, and I’m still trying to work out where 2019s travel destinations will be.
