Roadtrippin' | winter travels | New Orleans, Austin, Nashville, Asheville

It was about time for something new:

meet my new baby Fiat! I love the heck out of this tiny thing.

So I did as any logical person does when they buy a new car... put 3,000+ miles on it the first two weeks of owning it. 

The adventure begins: New Orleans. Where music is a tourist attraction. Lots of history. Tarot card readers and buskers on every corner. Also - a daiquiri drive-through bar exists. 

^ I can't tell if they were using "haunted" as a selling point, or warning...

On to the next - 8 hours and 511 miles to Austin, TX. Live music capital. Lives up to its name! Also: vegan ice cream shops, bakeries and juice bars on every corner. EVERY CORNER. My version of heaven, right there.

We LOVED Austin. Maybe it was the warm weather in January, maybe it was the incredible vegan ice cream from Sweet Ritual... it was hard to leave. (Below: being tourists.)

A painstaking 12 hours and we arrived in Nashville, TN the night before I had planned a shoot with Free People Nashville - which I was (and still am!) psyched about. I'll be sharing those photos in a separate post, up next - can't wait!

Woke up early and decided on a whim to make a last and unexpected stop in Asheville, NC. We didn't spend much time here, but just enough to wander the city, get a fancy masala chai tea, vintage shop, and eat at a farm-to-table spot.

and finally... home.
