FROM NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA, TO ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MAXICO
It was jazzy and wonderful way to heaven, route 66. This is New Orleans and Albuquerque, New Mexico. I was there for Honeymoon & Travel magazine’s fashion shooting. The trip started with 27 hours fight from Bangkok – with one stop at Narita airport, Japan, then Chicago until we reached New Orleans and Albuquerque at the end.
We started work right away in the next morning in New Orleans. The first location was the famous dough café called ‘Cafe Du Monde’. We did our fashion shoots in there and had our breakfast too.
For me the dough was not different from a Thai desert called Pa-Tong-Ko (a flour fried in oil for having with soya milk or congee.) The differences were that they served with icing sugar on the top and every bite I took I felt very fat. It’s exactly the same feeling when I’m having a Krispy Kreme doughnut!
The cafe insides decorated with lots of French colonial features as New Orleans has so many influent from French. There was also a lot of Voodoo things in New Orleans too.
One of the most interesting night was when we went to have a dinner in town. It was a Jazz bar and restaurant. The restaurant owner treated us very well. We were very enjoyed the wine and live jazz in the restaurant!
We also went for a nice trip along the Mississippi rivers. It was a very nice sunny day and we had a lot of fun.
After a couple of days in New Orleans we headed to Albuquerque, New Mexico, for the route 66 road – the road that run pass Chicago, Illinois, through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California before ending at Los Angeles, encompassing a total of 2,448 miles (3,940 km)
We visited the stunning Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort and Spa and had a breakfast there. The hotel surrounded by many beautiful mountains with interesting activities offered for their guests such as horse riding and a balloon trip.
That afternoon we went for a lunch in the Route 66 café. They serve mainly hamburger. In my view, It’s very unhealthy food and I definitely not recommended.
And this would be another trip I will remember very well. Here is the link of Albuquerque fashion for Honeymoon & Travel. I will put the New Orleans fashion up the page soon if I’m not too lazy ;-))
