I’m taking off this morning on a 13-parish road trip of north and central Louisiana with my friend from Twitter, @LouisianaTravel. She’s a mom also, and we plan on exploring parts of the state that people don’t normally think to visit.
The theme of our road trip is “Off the Beaten Path” and we’ll visit 13 parishes including the cities of Monroe/West Monroe, Colliston, Pioneer, Delhi, Ruston, Gibsland, Minden, Shreveport/Bossier City, Haughton, Clarence, Campti, Saline, Natchitoches, Alexandria/Pineville, Cheneyville, Lecompte, and Forest Hill.
We plan on checking out Louisiana State Park cabins and various bed and breakfasts along the way. No chain hotels for us on this one. We want to meet the people and the places that make up this upper portion of Louisiana.
We’ll be using Facebook, Twitter, Twitpic, and Britekite along the way so that anyone who wants to see behind the scenes of how a travel story is developed, can follow along. The hashtag we use on Twitter is #LaMamas. So follow us and send your comments along during our journey.
