Travel doesn’t always go to plan. Vlogging doesn’t always go to plan. And on this day in New Orleans, nothing really went to plan.
New Orleans was one of the cities I was most excited to see in the United States. @brendanvanson and I set aside a whole day to explore New Orleans and enjoy everything the city’s French Quarter has to offer.
But that just didn’t happen.
We both had a lot of work to do in the morning and by the time we finished, the storm was starting to set in. Even though we dodged most of the rain, there was a strange vibe in the air in New Orleans.
We were in New Orleans a few days before the start of Mardi Gras 2018 and it was eerie to see how quiet the streets were. There were beads and the three colours of Mardi Gras everywhere – but not very many people in sight.
So I didn’t really get to see New Orleans. I didn’t get a feel of the atmosphere in New Orleans.
And that kind of sucks – but just one of those things that happens when you’re working on the road and travelling fast.
There will still be plenty more USA vlogs and travel videos coming up over the next couple of weeks (and hopefully things won’t go so wrong in those!).
As always, thanks for watching and joining me on this journey!
