TRAVEL – trek america’s grand trek: lafayette, louisiana

travel - trekamericas grand trek day 34 lafayette louisianaWhat can I say about Austin? It was simp awesome! But it was time to head to New Orleans via a pit stop at Lafayette.

I’m not going to lie, today simply consisted of driving, eating and sleeping – so it’s a pretty short post!

We arrived into Lafayette KOA in good time to set up our tents and head straight to the pool. It was so hot and humid – like unbearably hot, so we all had a few soft drinks to try and cool us down. With humidity comes mosquitos, and they just seemed to love me! Hello leg bites! So I escaped to the air conditioned laundry room (well, I did have laundry to do too), before Matty and Dave cooked tea.

Tonight was a pretty chilled night, all of the girls bar Emma who wasn’t feeling well and Steph, watched True Blood. I’ve never seen it before and I actually enjoyed it!

We then went to bed and tried to get some sleep before two busy days in New Orleans!

There’s only a week to go until my American adventure ends! But first it’s time to sample the famous food and nightlife in New Orleans and Tennessee!

After a quick overnight stop in Lafayette (where there was humidity and mozzies galore), we finally arrived in New Orleans! Our first activity was a swamp tour where we got to see plenty of alligators and even got to hold a baby one! Then it was onto our accommodation for the next two nights – a townhouse for the eight of us! Better yet, it was only a stone’s throw away from the French Quarter and the infamous Bourbon Street! After a walking tour of the French Quarter, we all had a crawfish bowl for dinner before hitting the nightlife! We all tried the famous Hurricane cocktail, and partied the night away! The next day, me and Polly headed out and explored the local art galleries, shops and tried Creole cuisine (so delicious), before a voodoo tour that night. The next couple of days were then spent in the home of country music – Memphis and Nashville. We had a couple of amazing nights out – including a dance off in a Honky Tonk bar in Nashville – before travelling to Tennessee to visit the Jack Daniel’s distillery (in a non-drinking state, how ironic) and whitewater rafting in Ocoee. Our last stop of the week was Wytheville in Virginia, where we hit the batting cages, played pool and watched Harry Potter!
