Love Letter to NEW ORLEANS

Untitled_3778.jpg
 

I've never been to a place where I understood what the word, 'celebration' really means in action. New Orleans is a very special place. Filled with colour, excitement, soulful spirit, creativity and great vibes. When the sun comes out, it puts a smile on the entire city, and the background sound of Jazz surrounds you, making you truly switch on to a present time and start cruising. 

Having the privilege to visit New Orleans six times, I am blessed to have seen the town in various stages, meet lots of fun locals, taste some incredibly creative food and, of course, to fully explore different neighbourhoods.

One element that is truly unique about NOLA is a sense of community. Having done different business deals with various individuals, there is a continuous spirit that everybody gets to get some of the pie. If someone doesn't get a lucky break at this time, their turn is coming and they are OK with it. Sense of belonging and support for one another is just incredibly special.

 

This town has seen it all. Some parts are still rough and covered with the hurt that mother nature has brought upon them, but the real beauty is in the souls of the people living there.

Here is my quick guide to funky restaurants, heart-warming cafes and must see sites in this great city!
