New Orleans Preparations

I’m a planner—we all recognize this compulsion in me.  🙂  This habit ramps up whenever I start planning a trip. I love to know where I’m going and what I’ll be seeing while I’m there.

In just a week I’ll be heading down south to New Orleans, Louisiana for the annual Romantic Times Readers Convention. This trip will include a lot of firsts for me:

train ride, RT Convention, new orleans, NOLA, Dani Wade, romance author

~First time in NOLA as an adult (and with friends!)

~First time to travel by train

~First author book signing

~First visit to Mardi Gras World

New Orleans cemetery, NOLA, RT Convention, Dani Wade, romance author

I’m totally psyched! There are a lot of cool things in New Orleans that I want to see, in addition to the conference:

~famous cemetery tour

~ride the streetcars (especially down St. Charles Avenue)

~walk in the French Quarter

Canal St, Streetcar, NOLA, New Orleans, RT Convention, Dani Wade, romance author

But there’s a lot to do between now and departure day! Create a packing list, print train tickets, get my nails done, pack…I’ve already started my packing and To Do lists…told you I was a big planner!


Takeaway: What’s your favorite way to prepare for a trip: way early or late the night before? Any suggestions from those who’ve been to NOLA?
