We took a couple of charter buses 15+ hours down to Cajun Country a day before the conference started so we could do a swamp tour and get in some sight-seeing. During the tour we were on a boat similar to this...
|We got to see a decent number of these...and it turns out they feed them marshmellows & hot dogs. Intimidating, right?|
|Not my ideal vacation spot, but I'm sure it's perfect for some people.|
|Meet our tour guide,Captain Mike, a man of very few words. We had to nearly drag information out of him, but I think he warmed up to us.|
We stayed at the Hilton Riverside right off of the Mississippi river and the girls I roomed with and myself totally lucked out to be in a suite. We wanted all the girls on the same floor and they were one room short so they offered us the suite. I'm not 100% sure that's how it went down, but all I know is I got to stay in this massive room for the week.
|Large kitchen area|
|Large open table area that was perfect for game playing, dance parties, and eating pizza.|
|Living area with our beds.|
|We had an awesome view that overlooked the Mississippi River|
