In case you haven't been following the American news, last week a major hurricane hit Houston and southeast Texas. As we were leaving San Antonio, road signs still said "avoid Houston" and "limited fuel in and around Houston" but we did our research and figured we could make it through Houston and on to New Orleans. Once we got into eastern Texas …
... some houses have been raised on stilts, then abandoned as the owners ran out of money.
Today the rain was so heavy, that very soon the roads were like small rivers in parts, but it was warm rain like the tropical islands we went through on the ship.
We gathered a few brochures to see where we can explore without a car. Now that I can semi cope with the heat, I'd like to see more

We arrived in the Deep South, in Louisiana late at night, and our first objective was to pick up our rental car for the remaining 36 days of our trip. When we got to the desk, he informed us that there were no economy cars left in their collection, and so offered us an upgrade to their highest classification of premium. Not only this but he also said you can take the white convertible mustang up there if you want.. Well my eyes lit up as soon as we saw it, looking ...
Setting off around 10.00am we pointed Betty in the direction of New Orleans, Bourbon Street.
We've decided to do a segway tour again, and the start point is in the heart of the city.
Much of the central city district dates back to the late 1700's. New Orleans was also destroyed by fires in 1788, although 60 years before San Francisco, I guess it was a risk faced by most major cities of the time..
Hurricane Katrina hit the coast ...
... It was good fun, we even got free Pelicans t-shirts. Interestingly, the atmosphere at the Perth Wildcats games we've been to had better atmosphere, so we'll make sure we get along to some of the bigger games with bigger crowds while we are in the US.
We booked an extra night in our New Orleans hotel, and started considering getting a long distance bus into Texas instead of a very expensive ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ashton's Bed and Breakfast New Orleans
The home is beautiful, Patrick and Karma are very friendly and gracious hosts and the food is absolutely fantastic!
A wonderful place!
Ashton's is a beautiful, graceful southern mansion in the heart of New Orleans. The rooms manage to be both spacious and homey, and are impeccably decorated. Patrick and Karma are hosts par excellence. I recommend the bananas foster waffles for breakfast... if you dare!
They're deadly good.
I Ate Too Much
Of course, I expect to eat too much when I go to New Orleans but still...
First, they stuffed us full of excellent breakfasts.
Then they left all sorts of snacks and drinks out where we could get them.
Then they convinced us to go to Drago's and attempt suicide by something innocuously called 'The Seafood Feast'.
I thought I was going to burst.
Seriously, Patrick and Karma (the proprietors) are two of the nicest, most hospitable people I have ever met.
Ashton's is GORGEOUS
We love New Orleans. The French Quarter, the food, the Garden District, the waterfront, the music, the food, Magazine Street, the food... But now it's more: it's where we stay! Ashton's B&B makes your visit to New Orleans the ultimate experience. You get to stay in a fabulous antebellum mansion, and your host was actually born in the city, so you get the real story, the best advice, the insider information that makes New Orleans such a magical treat. And ooohhhh that coffee - you will want to get some from Patrick before you leave for home.
Ashtons is one of the best places we have ever stayed. The house itself is beautiful with a wondeful backyard and front porch. Very very romantic. Our room was huge, beautiful and very comfortable. Patrick is an amazing cook--the breakfasts were wonderful! He also makes dead-on restaurant/food choice recommendations. We would not have had the New Orleans experience we had if we had stayed elsewhere. We are hoping to return in December!
All around great experience.
We just returned from a three night stay at Ashton's. It is an unbelievable value considering the beautiful accomodations, wonderful food and endless amenities. It's a nice distance from the French Quarter, a quick cab ride.
We really enjoyed New Orleans. The B&B was nice and the people friendly. Only bad part was the walk back from the French Quarter. The area around the B&B is really shady. Cabs are the only was to go. We are big city people, but we did not feel comfortable walking back Esplanade.
Unsurpassed Excellence at Ashtons!
Patrick and Karma Ashton are gracious and knowledgeable hosts. They have thoughtfully considered every detail. Breakfast is simply without peer! Ashtons is conveniently located just outside the French Quarter; accessible yet quiet and private. The residence is stately, beautifully, yet casually decorated. Relaxing beneath the 300 year-old oak in the back yard, reading a book, while smelling jasmine and trumpeter flowers is a wonderful break from the bustle of sightseeing.
My wife, daughter and I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in New Orleans.
While we were in Montgomery, AL we made a spir of the moment decision to go to New Orleans. I checked the internet for bed and breakfasts in or near the French Quarter...The very nicest ad that caught my eye was the Ashton. I placed a call to reserve. The woman who took the call was exceedingly pleasent. When I found that it was 9 blocks to the Quarter, I hesitated, then she assured me the walk down the oak lined Esplanade was very pleasent and a quiet and grasious way to see the Quarater and experience the old Spanish homes that studded the walk. She also said" Please come and stay with us- I know you will love it here - I will hold 3 of our best rooms for you to choose from. Wow. Her directions were perfect. We were thirlled with our choise. The home is beautiful.
My wife and I had a great 4 days at this bed and breakfast. I did a ton of online research for B&B's and finally decided upon Aston's. I was a little nervous about what to expect before I got there but it turned out to be the best experience we could have had for our 10th wedding anniversary.
