We booked a trip to Louisiana to attend Voodoo Festival 2016. It’s a three day festival where Tool, The Weeknd and the Arcade Fire were headlining. Usually, buying tickets like that, I’d want to see a ton of the artists – really get the most for my ticket. But we only went to see Tool and the Weeknd. They’re two of my favourite performers of all time and tickets to see them cost more than I paid for the whole festival. Really though? I just couldn’t justify coming to Louisiana and being in a park at a show for three full days.
We found ourselves exploring the French Quarter on multiple days. I’ve been obsessed with the French Quarter since I read Anne Rice’s vampire books in middle school. I knew I’d come to Louisiana at some point in my life. And now that I was here, I wasn’t going to visit Cafe Du Monde multiple times. And eat as much Southern food as I could get my hands on.
