The perfect end to my time here...

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Youse all know I am leaving for NZ on August 15th...

We have booked a few days in New Orleans from August 7-11 for a few days to spend with each other before I leave - we need the time together!!!

I am sooo in love with New Orleans that I thought about it every day, and I feel better that I am going back so that I can catch more of what I missed when I was there last time and it was during Mardi Gras and so not everything was available.



I am sooo excited!

Have fun in New Orleans! I'm going in December for a professional meeting and can't wait-I really want to do a graveyard tour or haunting tour.

OHH! How exciting!! I've heard New Orleans can be a very exciting place to visit!

I might have missed a previous thread regarding this? Does this mean you are moving back to NZ or just going back for a visit?

If you're moving back, will you be able to bring your furbabies with you?

Pamela - yes, I am going home on August 15 - permanently. (for now ) And I got the loan from my grandparents to bring the cats home with me! Yay! There is no way I am leaving them behind!

And yes, New Orleans is very exciting - especially during Mardi Gras - thats when I went last time. I sure had my eyes full!

Kellye

There are Riverboat Dinner cruises on the Mississippi. Be sure to take one of them. Good food, setting sun, nice ambiance.

If I weren't going to be 8 months pregnant at the time I'd come meet you! It's waaaaay too hot for me to get out there being that big! I only live about an hour away.

Hope you have fun and be careful!

Be good too...New Orleans is kinda like Vegas, "What happens here stays here!"

Make sure to get your "fix" of Gumbo and go to Cafe du Mode!

Eddie - of course I am crazy I am already shopping around for clothes to wear there - I don't like skimpy stuff so I will have to go with shorts and tank tops

Catherine - I have a friend who lives an hour away also - in Sorrento - know the town by any chance?

Do I really have to be good? I don't want to be good. I want my weekend to be decadent.

Oh I am SO definitely going to get my gumbo and coffee and chicory with my beignets! And I will have to get some together and mail them straight home to NZ!!!!!!

We were in New Orleans this past March and had a blast.

I know you've probably investigated things on the web but here are some links we found that helped a little:
http://www.neworleanscoupons.com/
http://www.neworleansonline.com/
http://www.neworleansrestaurants.com/restaurants.html
http://www.neworleansfinehotels.com/...i/besthotels//

Hope you have a GREAT time & say hello to a sheep or two once you get home for me, okay?
New Zealand is on my list of places to visit!
