Departing from the usual today in celebration of All Hallows’ Eve 💀#thisishalloween  #happyhaunting 

When you have the opportunity to tagalong on your husband’s business trip to New Orleans, you take it, even if it means touring the city solo. 🤪 - Best way to take advantage of the city is by foot...and off I went!!!. ✅ Visited the famous Jackson Square. ✅ Had brunch at Stanley’s. ✅ Took a taxi bike around the city. ✅ Walked along The Mississippi River. ✅ Visited 2 historic cemeteries. ✅ Visited The Voodoo Queen, Marie Laveau’s Residence. ✅ Experienced Bourbon street. - However, Jack did join me when he could. - - - #JacksonSquare  #NewOrleans  #Solo  #Humidity  #WorkConvention  #Louisiana  #Mississippi  #LafayetteCemetary  #StLouisCemetary  #TaxiBike  #Tours  #WalkingTours  #FrenchQuarters  #BusinessTrip  #BourbonStreet  #Voodoo  #MarieLaveau

Strolling around NOLA’s Lafayette Cemetery #1 in the month of October was a pretty eerie experience. It was built in 1833, apparently right after a huge Yellow Fever outbreak hit the city. Since the city of New Orleans is below sea level, they can’t bury any remains underground. All tombs are buried over ground and you’ll see many cemeteries around the city as you‘re out and about. Today, Lafayette Cemetery #1 is one of the most popular to visit, as it’s free and open to the public. It’s also the most filmed cemetery in New Orleans (including one of my favorite movies of all time - Double Jeopardy!). #neworleans  #nola  #getawayfromLA

Vilken bra idé det var att ägna dagen åt New Orleans Voodoo och ta en tur på Lafayette Cemetary. Känner mig så upprymd nu efter ett sådant budskap: 'DIE JAMES DIE' #voodoo  #neworleansvoodoo  #neworleans  #lafayettecemetary  #roadtrip

Wishing I were back in New Orleans! #warmweather  #louisiana  #lafayettecemetary 

As I walked past this tomb, located in Lafayette Cemetery #1, I was immediately captivated by the single white rose laying atop the stone. It was just such a perfect image, I had to preserve it. 🌹 - - - - - - #lafayettecemetary  #neworleansarchitecture  #femmetravel  #acolorstory  #liveauthentic  #neworleansculture  #followyournola  #chasinglight  #memorialday  #neworleans  #thatsdarling  #colorhunters  #nola  #dscolor  #dslooking  #gardendistrict  #postitfortheaesthetic  #colorcolourlovers  #wanderlust  #abmtravelbug  #ihavethisthingwithcolor  #wearetravelgirls  #dametraveler  #chasinglight  #theeverygirl  #sheisnotlost 

This gorgeous mausoleum in the Lafayette Cemetery inspired Anne Rice’s depiction of the tomb of the Vampire Lestat (one of my favourites). It was haunting and beautiful. /\/\/\/\/\/\ #travelyourway  #onetimeinnola  #onetimeinneworleans  #stayandwander  #lafayettecemetary  #nola  #ecmmedia  #eastcoastblogger  #discoverunder2k  #vampirelestat  #annerice  ##tasteintravel  #openmyworld  #goplayoutside  #exploremore  #travelstoke  #lonelyplanet  #travelawesome  #traveldeeper  #roamtheplanet  #exploringtheglobe  #travelwriter  #travelpic  #travelblogger  #traveltips  #darlingescapes  #sheisnotlost

Lafayette Cemetery was very similar to the last cemetery we went to, however there were a few differences: 1) There were trees and plants growing inside. It made walking through a nicer experience. 2) There are a lot of firemen laid to rest here. 3) The water damage/age was very apparent here. The headstones were warping, and the words were being worn away. I'm surprised at how much was worn away and not restored, but I'm sure the repairs are costly. 4) You cant rely tell from my pic but in my second to last shot posted, you can see beads on a gate with stairs that lead to an elevated plot. That was super interesting as the people were buried in dirt like other places, but the plots were housed above ground. That was very unique, so far. The area around this cemetery was really nice as it is located in the Garden District. . . . #NewOrleans  #neworleansculture  #Cemetary  #Lafayettecemetary  #gardendistrict  #NOLA 

MARDI GRAS was a blast!

Black cat at a City of the Dead, #lafayettecemetary  New Orleans. Should i be concerned.

Cemetaries are scary but there is beauty to be found and love.

Wandering around the Garden District - clementines on the tree in January! #neworleans  #clementines  #lafayettecemetary 

⚜ "There are a lot of places I like, but I like New Orleans better. There's a thousand different angles at any moment. At any time you could run into a ritual honoring some vaguely known queen. Bluebloods, titled persons like crazy drunks, lean weakly against the walls and drag themselves through the gutter. Even they seem to have insights you might want to listen to. No action seems inappropriate here. The city is one very long poem. Gardens full of pansies, pink petunias, opiates. Flower-bedecked shrines, white myrtles, bougainvillea and purple oleander stimulate your senses, make you feel cool and clear inside." ⚜ - Bob Dylan . . #nola  #neworleans  #laissezlesbontempsrouler  #bobdylan  #cajun  #louisiana  #frenchquarter  #riverwalk  #Gardendistrict  #preservationhall  #stlouiscathedral  #houseoftherisingsun  #Lafayettecemetary  #arneradventures  #HanleyandFritz  #travel  #traveller  #travelphotos  #worldtravelphotos  #wheretonext  #travelgram  #bayou  #downinthebayou

Ghost hunting in the graveyards of New Orleans.

Have you ever gotten a seat at the Carousel Bar? This place was always crowded from open to close we never got our chance. Guess we will just have to go back to New Orleans and try again. 🎠

A quiet soulful morning in Lafayette Cemetery

Lafayette Cemetery, French Quarter and city bus tour were so fun today! A lot of laughs and giggles and some pretty cool info of this old city 🌃 #neworleans  #louisiana  #sistertrip  #oldcities  #lafayettecemetary  #louisiana  #keepingupwiththedunns  #frenchquarter  #citybustour
