Despite not feeling my best, I was blessed to have, at least, endeavored to take pictures – a little over 900. It sounds like a lot but over a five-day period, that’s only 180 pictures per day, which really isn’t a lot.
I’ll write in more detail in some later posts. Here, though, is a photo essay of my trip to New Orleans to attend the International Food Blogger Conference (IFBC) 2018. Since I wasn’t feeling well, I didn’t have as good a time as I’d had at last year’s conference, but I learned a lot of new, useful stuff, nonetheless, and got to try most of the food on my trip list.
Meanwhile, here are just a few pictures of my first (but not last!) trip to New Orleans. It really is a food mecca.
