Louisiana Roadtrip & Food!

Hope you’ve enjoyed the tales from our Louisiana roadtrip.  It was a fascinating part of the world to explore from the magic of the swamp to the music on ever corner of New Orleans.  Would I recommend our trip for families with young children?  Absolutely.  My only advice would be to pay attention to the weather – we visited Louisiana in mid July and it was sweltering. Luckily we live in Hong Kong so we are used to the heat but we did find the midday sun exhausting.

Now for those of you who are on the fence as to whether Louisiana is for, let me leave you with a little taster…
