New Orleans: A Guide to The Big Easy
Oh man, did I love New Orleans! Widely known as the birthplace of jazz, it's a totally different world compared to other American cities I've visited. I'd wanted to go for years so when my boyfriend's cousin proposed to his southern belle I was very happy we were invited to their wedding. The wedding itself was fantastic, and if you didn't know, a huge part of New Orleans culture is the second line - they love a good parade so after the ceremony everyone walked out of the cathedral while a brass band played. We then followed the band and the wedding party, dancing through the streets waving our white handkerchiefs all the way to the reception venue and it was such an awesome experience!
