New Orleans

We spent a very hot week in New Orleans back in 2013. While the city was clearly still getting back on its feet 8 years after Hurricane Katrina it important to note that we have hardly been to a more welcoming, hospitable city. This is a place where no-one would be blamed for feeling resentment towards the rest of the world at the lack of aid that was provided in their darkest hour, but you’re met with love and open arms. Just talking about it two years on makes us feel nostalgic for the people of the deep south.

The French Quarter is the most famous district of this vibrant city, and where you are most likely to visit but also spare a thought for Frenchmen Street which is a hub for authentic music and food just North of Bourbon Street.

Cafe Du Monde

Café du Monde is famous for their Beignets & cafe au lait. Beignets are square donuts pronounced ben-yays. They come piled high with icing sugar and should be eaten with the cafe au lait. This is not a mid morning snack for the diabetics out there. But a great naughty treat.
