copenhagen travel guide: do the free walking tour

Our Norwegian Scandinavian cruise departed from Copenhagen, Denmark, on a Monday, so the hubby and decided we would fly down on Saturday and give ourselves some time to explore all that Copenhagen had to offer.

the pros and cons of a norwegian cruise

I’ve decided that there are two types of people in this world: those who love cruises and those who don’t.

Before I visited New Orleans, my knowledge of the place was pretty much limited to three things: Mardi Gras, po’boy sandwiches, and the bayou. How many books have I read about the dark things that happen in the swamp? Countless. (Apparently, it’s a great place to hide bodies. The gators eat up all the evidence.)Continue reading “new orleans travel guide: do the swamp tour with cajun encounters”
