Exploring New Orleans {Road Trip Travel Journal, Pt. 4}

Hello, my friends!

Well, this is it – the last post in my vacation series! Today we’re going to visit New Orleans, specifically the French Quarter. I am NOT a city girl and usually don’t enjoy touring cities that much, but this was such a neat experience, oh my goodness! I loved it.

Read on for what alligator meat tastes like, pictures of a gorgeous cathedral, a parking mistake, the longest bridge in the world, and the best game of Dutch Blitz ever. ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy!

A Foggy Beach Photoshoot {Road Trip Travel Journal, Pt. 3}

Hello, my friends!

This next part in my vacation series comprises a bunch of photos I took at a rather chilly beach in Galveston, Texas. When you think of beaches, you think of sun and warmth, but as we went in February, this one was more… foggy and cold. Hehe. It was a little disappointing but also neat because I’ve never been to a beach in the fog before. And I love fog. At least it made for some neat, eerie-looking photos!

Enjoy some aesthetic, gloomy ocean photography! ๐Ÿ™‚

Prairie Dogs & Rocky Hikes {Road Trip Travel Journal, Pt. 1}

Hello, my friends!

I’m so excited to start sharing some of the TONS of photos I took on our recent vacation. For years, my family has had the goal to visit at all the 48 contiguous United States, and now we can check that off the bucket list. This time we went through south/southwest states like Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Lousiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. We rented a motorhome and spent most of the time just driving, but we also made some super neat stops, like New Orleans, a foggy beach, gorgeous scenic overlooks and trails, the Silos at Waco, a random prairie dog town, and lots of other fun stuff.

I have waaaay too many photos to fit in one post, so I’m gonna make this into a series, okay? Today I’ll start with some Oklahoma photos. I loved how different the scenery looked there from where I live! We went on a beautiful hike and also stopped at the edge of the road to see buffalo, prairie dogs, and a Texas longhorn cow.

Alright, enough explaining what we did. Let me just show you!
