The preparation

The choice of a suitable route

A group of cyclists on the road in nature

  • Wherever the trip goes, first check whether it can be done by cyclists.
  • Especially when traveling with children, you should pay attention to whether there are cycle paths or whether the route passes through areas with little traffic.
  • Especially with multi-day bike tours, the length of the stages is decisive in the choice of options to pause and the accommodation. The destinations must be in accordance with what you can handle per day and must be adapted to the course of the route.

Boutique shopping in Magazine Street

Magazine Street is a ten-kilometer-long street packed with unique antique spots, catering establishments, art galleries, vintage shops and craft shops. The street is filled with colorful Victorian architecture and there is no chain like H&M and Zara in sight. What you will find there are specialty shops that offer something different. It is the ideal place to purchase souvenirs such as LPs, woodwork and the quality fedoras, bowler hats and berets from the well-known hat maker Goorin Bros.

Evening walk along the Mississippi

MISSISSIPPI. There are few words as fun to spell as Mississippi. In English then. Besides the state, you also have the Mississippi River, which has a length of no less than 3,730 kilometers. Part of this river, called the Lower Mississippi, flows through New Orleans. And the illuminated park along this waterway is perfect for a romantic evening stroll!

Madness during Mardi Gras

The residents of New Orleans prove that the Brazilians are not the only ones who know how to build a good carnival party. On the last night of Carnival (the day before Ash Wednesday), Mardi Gras takes place: a three-day spectacle that is accompanied by a parade and a costume party.

Po boys

A must-try are the po-boys of Johnny’s Po-boys on St. Louis Street. Richly sandwiches that you put together yourself. In the 1920s, the balls were given away to the poor, the poor boys , from which the dish gets its name. Since there are plenty of fish and seafood in New Orleans, it is recommended to order a po-boy with shrimp, crayfish, or softshell crab. Keep in mind that almost all seafood is fried!
