New Orleans 2/3

Oh what I wouldn’t give to be sitting down in New Orleans sipping on Cafe Au Laits and eating beignets with my favorite people. I know it’s been awhile since I said I would share my next post but here it is: full of sunshine, the Garden District, French 75’s, and Streetcar’s named Desire. You can see more of the French Quarter, here, but below you’ll find Mansions and little glimpse into our day on the St. Charles Streetcar, pictures of our Airbnb, and pictures from the night where we all matched at Arnaud’s (which I highly recommend!)Β Ooh-la-la!

In the South Land there’s a city
Way down on the river
Where the women are very pretty
And all the men deliver
They got music
It’s always playin’
Start in the day time, go all through the night
When you hear that music playin’
Hear what I’m saying, it make you feel alright
Grab somebody, come on down
Bring your paintbrush, we’re paintin’ the town
Honey, there’s some sweetness goin’ ’round
Catch it down in New Orleans

Toronto 5/6

Aside from the Castle, which will have to have it’s own post (obviously), these two places were my favorite sites in Toronto. The first place, Nathan Phillips Square is the location of the governmental buildings. It also houses this adorable Toronto Sign that reflects into the water. It’s things like this that give a city character and I really enjoyed this space. The second place, is the Distillery District. You will find a lot of information on traveling in Toronto, but (again, aside from the Castle), I highly recommend spending an afternoon in the Distillery District. There are tons of places to shop, pecan butter tarts, art galleries, it’s own brewery, and the district itself is so quaint and full of character. If you are from America, you literally feel as if you’ve been transported back in time.

See the unseen side of Toronto, here, see the bluffs here,Β and the touristy side here, some architecture here, and finally my favorite places below!
