It’s crazy that New Orleans literally happened over a week ago, I am still trying to recover from sleeping in and partying too hard, but it was all worth it. Here are some more pictures from our trip, I had over 200, so I had to limit them down, even though that was really hard considering how many cool pictures I took at the Audubon Butterfly Garden & Insectarium. As you can see above, the bugs were in full heat during our visit, every bug in every tank was getting it on…I’m not kidding.
In all seriousness though, visiting the Insectarium was one of my favorite parts of the whole trip. The butterfly garden was this big room where all the butterflies got to roam free, and birds too! It was so magical, I literally felt like I was in the scene of a movie, just watching them all fly around us and land wherever. There were hundreds all over the walls, leaves and trees..It was absolutely beautiful. Besides the insectarium I think I had fun just doing nothing in New Orleans. It’s easy to walk down the street and feel intrigued by everything going on around you. There was always live music, street entertainers, art being sold, and even different types of dance / visual theater going on. It’s a place immersed in culture and there is so much to learn and see that I don’t think a few days are enough. Bill and I both said if we ever go back we want to do more historical things, and possibly see some plantations, take a cemetery tour and take a ride through the swamp. Until next time New Orleans! You were a blast.
