While I was based in Tallahassee Florida I rented a car and made my way towards a conference (SPSP2013) taking place at New Orleans. It was a wonderful trip, New Orleans was absolutely fascinating with the crazy Mardi Gras traditions, and the road between Tallahassee and New Orleans offered plenty of wonderful beaches and attractions at Pensacola and Alabama.

To summarize that short trip, this was my route…

 

 

New Orleans

Lots of historical plantations and houses all across the country-side…

And, ofcourse, the Mardi Gras madness…

Also stayed overnight at the gorgeous Orange Beach near Pensacola, and stopped over in various wonderful springs and hikes along the way. Was magical.
