New Orleans: TTB’s 3 Fascinating Facts

‘While he was road trippin’ in Louisiana, eating gumbo and drinking moonshine, Travel Bug uncovered these fascinating and rather creepy facts about New Orleans…’

Voodoo

Voodoo was introduced to the United States from New Orleans! Travel Bug is rather less than keen on this fact.  He probably won’t upset anyone in the city so that he doesn’t end up with pins jammed in his lovely squishy back…

Haunted

As well as being the birthplace of voodoo in the US, New Orleans is considered to be the most haunted city in the country.  TTB is scared of his own shadow, so probably won’t be going out on his own at ALL.  He’ll be taking his humans with him everywhere he goes, even if it’s just out for some carne.

Tombs

The tombs in New Orleans are all above ground, due to high water levels.  This means that, during flooding, it’s not uncommon for coffins to go bobbing down the street… Travel Bug has decided that he probably doesn’t want to stay in NOLA any more and he’d maybe like to go somewhere a bit less spooky.
