A lot going on right now. Phew
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: I’ve given up my apartment and put my stuff in storage. Okay, so it’s a little different, last time I had a house and sold my stuff.
Right now, I’m in New Orleans, the Irish Channel district to be specific. I’ve got a couple of big projects I’m working on to keep my busy, of course. Those books I mentioned that were calling to me to be crafted? I’m in process on both of them, with sites coming soon.
11 Pieces of Clothing, 1 Carry On, A Year’s Worth of Possibilities
The first one is Carry On 365, a packing system using 11 pieces of convertible clothing to create over a years worth of non-repeating outfits.I know, it sounds nuts, a year’s wardrobe in a carry on bag. I’ve done the photo shoot and have all the clothes with me here in New Orleans and actually, my bag is 5 linear inches smaller than the standard carry on. So, you’ve still got room for any extras that I don’t carry like a travel dryer or make up.
Beyond Bourbon St
I’m also starting a travel guide imprint, Quiet Girl Travels. I visit cities with loud and large reputations and show the other side of the city. That’s why I’m in New Orleans, doing research for the first volume. Also, spring in New Orleans, who’s going to pass that up?
I’ll be covering things like farmers markets, parks, museums, coffee shops, restaurants, libraries, gardens, book stores, historic homes, walking tours, city specialties, and more. Also, I’ll talk about the finer details of things like getting to and from the airport and public transit.
Since I’m on the road again, I’d love to hear what you want to know about travel and New Orleans, so, please post your questions in the comments .
