One of my favorite parts of the graveyards in New Orleans were the painted tombs. Colorful in life, colorful in death, right?! Standing beside Voodoo Priestess, Marie Laveau‘s (disputed) tomb.
For our honeymoon, George and I decided to forgo the traditional, all-inclusive beach trip for a darker, and dare I say, more exciting vacation to New Orleans. And we didn’t regret a minute of it. The food was amazing, the history was rich and the beer was flowing!
As you can tell from the pictures, we visited several graveyards and we brought along cheapo, disposable cameras. I kind of love the way the pictures turned out. They are a little creepy, over-saturated, and look much older than digital photos. We also forgot to charge the digital camera– happy mistake! I brought the disposable cameras on our ghost tour too, but none of the pictures turned out. I think a ghost ruined the rest of our film!
If you are thinking about doing something a little off the beaten path for your honeymoon, I would highly recommend it. Get out there and see something new!
Did you go anywhere “different” for your honeymoon? Are you planning to go somewhere “different?” Let me know in the comments.
