1. Suzy Guese

New Orleans is a great city for its spirit and sights, but the food and drink are the real stars of the travel show. When I was in grad school I spent a week eating (and drinking) my way through the Cajun capital and I understand firsthand how tempting all the culinary treasures are. Suzy captures the essence of the food experience in New Orleans highlighting some of the best food the city has to offer.

3. The Travel Bite

I enjoyed this post not only because I’ve spent a lot of time in Ohio and Kentucky, but for the message Rachelle shares with us. I know I’ve learned this the hard way, but travel destinations don’t have to be exotic to be fun. I’ve had incredibly memorable experiences in the most unlikely of places. Take a look at this post and see what you think.

I don’t have kids and I can only imagine how one’s life changes overnight with the arrival of a newborn. Add into the mix a desire to travel and see as much of the world as possible, and you have a recipe for some real problems. Craig and Caz aren’t just travel experts, they’re now family travel experts and I love the advice they share in this post. The photos are pretty great (and hilarious) as well.

    Ever tried the ‘Hurricane’ cocktail in New Orleans? It’s loaded with rum and guaranteed to knock you out!
