You don't have to be a history buff to appreciate Reverend John Parker who died in 1864, but makes his point in eternity. The story goes that he started out a unionist, fiercely opposing secession. After a cannon was placed right into his front...

Katrina, one of the deadliest hurricanes in US history, hit New Orleans hard in 2005. One of the areas most affected was the Lower 9th Ward, were buildings weren't just flooded, but smashed up by violent currents, and in many cases pulled from...

Nashville, TN, USA
Full disclosure: I am not a country music fan. But it felt wrong to spend time in Nashville, America's country music capital, without a visit to the infamous Grand Ole Opry. The Grand Ole Opry is a live weekly concert and radio broadcast (the...

Visiting Frogmore, an 1800 acre working cotton plantation with over 200 years of history, turned out to be one of the most memorable highlights on my recent travels through the South. Frogmore is located in Louisiana, a short distance across the...

I vowed to explore Nashville beyond country music, and thanks to a friend's suggestion, I found myself at the 13,000 square feet Pinewood Social, located in one of the former trolley barns in Rolling Mill Hill. Back in 2013, founding brothers Ben...

After exploring the hustle and bustle of downtown anywhere, I always long for the quietude of nature. Even better, nature and art! The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden is located in City Park, next to the New Orleans Museum of Art. What...
