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!

TRAVEL – my usa bucket list

travel - my usa bucket list

As today marks the first day of my trekamerica trip, I thought that I would share with you guys my USA bucket list.

new york citytravel - my usa bucket list new york city
The concrete jungle where dream are made of. New York has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember. The bright lights of Times Square, the spectacular skyline view from the Empire State Building and sailing near the famous Statue of Liberty are all things that I’m excited to tick off.

los angelestravel - my usa bucket list los angeles
Home of Hollywood’s finest, a visit to LA has been imprinted on my brain ever since I saw The Hills. From a stroll down the Hollywood Walk of Fame to hitting Venice Beach, I can’t wait to get my so-cal vibe on when we land in LA.

grand canyontravel - my usa bucket list grand canyon
One of the seven natural wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon is another place I can’t wait to visit. I’m probably gonna be one of those people who take 83922 photos of it, but hey, it is a natural wonder after all!

las vegastravel - my usa bucket list las vegas
The city that never sleeps… One minute I’ll be next to the Eiffel Tower and the next I’ll be taking a selfie in front of an Egyptian pyramid. If that’s not already enough to make me giddy, there’s always the nightlife and the Bellagio fountains.

new orleanstravel - my usa bucket list new orleans
We will always have Bourbon Street. And voodoo, swamps and of course gumbo. From the hustle and bustle of the French Quarter to a cooking class, NOLA is another place on I can’t wait to tick off my wish list.
