New Orleans: Q&A with Kathryn of Staying Afloat
I can’t stress the importance of community enough when you’re blogging, especially with current events! That’s how I was able to network with Kathryn from Staying Afloat. It turns out that we both really enjoyed New Orleans and thought it would be interesting to see how our opinions on our time spent there would compare. Enter a Q&A swap! Kathryn shares her answers below and if you’d like to read mine head over to her site, Staying Afloat. Spoiler: we both have excellent taste.
When was the first time you went to NOLA?
What did you expect?
What was your first impression of Bourbon Street?
How many times have you been back/would you go back?
What is your one piece of advice for a first time?
Kathryn’s favorites in NOLA:
American Horror Story Season 3 – Coven something about the dark history of the city really makes it come to life so much more when you are there.
What’s your number one “can’t miss” recommendation for NOLA?
If you were going to get someone a souvenir from NOLA what would it be?
Kathryn: A praline from one of the MANY praline shops (love them all!) – a creamy sugar “cookie” filled with pralines.

New Orleans is super high on my list of places to visit. Reading all of this makes me super excited to go someday, when all of this has calmed down a little bit!

As if I didn’t already want to visit New Orleans. Now I want to go even more! My husband and I had hoped to plan a trip for 2020, but it’s looking like that might be less of a possibility – at least for the near future. Hopefully one day I get to visit. I want to eat my way through the city hah!

New Orleans is one place I’ve never been before but would love to visit. The culture, the food, the people, the atmosphere are all things that draw me to that city.
