My entire time in Louisiana was not spent in the NOLA area. I split my week in two. My sister and hubby were there for the New Orleans piece and for the second half I enjoyed visiting with a friend of mine who was an outstanding hostess and took me on many adventures.
If you are going to visit Louisiana, the trip would not be complete without experiencing the swamps. I was fortunate to get on the water several times during my trip; once on a tour, once in a kayak and once on a fishing boat.
This is where the real beauty of Louisiana lives. These wetlands are breathtaking and abundantly rich in wildlife.
