Happy Mardi Gras! In celebration of the holiday, I have a fun story that I thought I would share. Four years ago on this day (or whatever date it fell on then), I was supposed to be in New Orleans to celebrate Mardi Gras with my friend, Katie. When our travel agent booked the trip, she made a tiny mistake and got the week wrong. We were booked for the week after! Can you believe that? Needless to say, we went right back to our agent and complained. In the end it all worked out. We were upgraded to a first class flight to and from, given a better hotel room at The Sheraton and given a free dinner at the Commander’s Palace. In all honestly, I think it would have been too out of control for me the week of Mardi Gras and it was probably a blessing in disguise.
We had a wonderful time when we did get there and the city of New Orleans is a beautiful place. It is rich with culture and history and there was a ton to do. We went to Bourbon St. most nights and met some really cool people. During the day, we went to places like St. Louis Cathedral, the aquarium, Saks, etc.
It was a beautiful place and I would love to visit again one day.
