WHAT REALLY HAPPENED ON OUR VW BUS ROAD TRIP – NEW ORLEANS LOUISIANA

by | 2019 | The Lills, Travel

After a relaxing time at Cheaha State Park in Alabama, we decided to skip down to New Orleans, Louisiana. We knew we wouldn’t be able to camp in our bus in the city, so we got creative and contacted vacation home owners in Nola. We were able to trade our video skills, with an incredible family, to stay at their historic home in the Garden District. We expected to be there only for a few days, but they let us stay for almost two weeks!

We really got to know the city of New Orleans and absorb all of the different districts and their personalities. We jumped on the trolley, which got us from one area to another. There was so much history, flavor and activity all about. We did everything we could, from getting a tarot reading to experiencing the wild night scene on Frenchmen Street.

When we were heading out of New Orleans, we stopped for the night in a place called Ponchatoula. We could never have expected what we’d wake up to! While letting our dog, Sunday, out for a walk, a teeny, tiny kitten approached us. He went right up to Sunday and began rubbing her tummy, until both of them were curled up, fast asleep. It was incredible to witness and we couldn’t see this little guy being left behind.

He was so malnourished and he fit in one hand. We asked the hotel people what they thought and they said the road was busy and that he’d probably not make it long. The two of us decided at that moment, he was coming with us and everyone that was there was so excited for him.

Destination 2 on our cross country road trip was complete and we now had a kitten on board! What could possibly happen next? Stay tuned for Chapter 3!
