#TBT: Mardi Gras

“It has been said that a Scotchman has not seen the world until he has seen the world until he has seen Edinburg’ and I think that I may say that an American has not seen the United States until he has seen Mardi Gras in New Orleans.”  – Mark Twain


 I had my first Mardi Gras experience in 2014, my Senior Year in college.  To be frank, I had an awesome set up; friends of friends opened their homes and let me stay with them – talk about Southern hospitality (shoutout to you Claire and Parker)!  On top of everything else they knew exactly how to navigate the busy New Orleans Parade Route and the bar scene, making drinking and partying the most carefree experience I have ever had. My only worry was where my next beer would come from 😉

Here are some of my favorite photos – enjoy!

My Mardi Gras experience was something I could ever imagine.  I’m not sure I could ever top my first Mardi Gras but I will definitely give it another go! So if I have any last words:

GO TO MARDI GRAS GO GO GO .
