Kaz and Courtney passed the Florida border yesterday around 4:30 and rolled into NOLA last night around 7. Along with the dogs, they stayed at a pet-friendly La Quinta Inn – conveniently located only seven blocks from Bourbon Street (crawling – I mean – walking distance if necessary after a night on the town). Although they were sure to sample libations and culinary delights of the French Quarter, their night was easy-going. After dinner at the award-winning Gumbo Shop, they hit Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop where they grabbed a Voodoo, a drink recommended by Kaz and described in his typical fashion as “a grape slushy with some kind of alcohol” then strolled Bourbon Street.

Our traveling duo rose early this morning and, with Sookie and Stitch, strolled down to Café du Monde for mouth-watering beignets.

With 10 hours of driving today, Kaz and Courtney plan to get just past San Antonio before calling it a night. In their latest update, they crossed into Texas today around 4:30. Looks like they’re having a blast!
