Accommodation in New Orleans

Celebrating double digits


View Roadtrop on mormolyke's travel map.

In April 2002, Matt and I roadtripped to New Orleans together, after two years of ICQ conversation, and a week after meeting in person for the first time. And we fell in love.

It has been ten years since then. TEN YEARS! Or at least, it will have been, by the time we start our latest roadtrip.

In case you can't tell, this is UTTERLY ASTOUNDING to me.

I just sent an e-mail to the reservations dude at the very hostel where we stayed in 2002:

Hi Steve,

Yes, I would love to reserve a private room for May 14 – one thing, though – would you mind taking a look at the attached photos? If it is possible for you to identify the private room at Marquette House in which they was taken, and if it happens to be available, we would love to book that particular room. (Long story short: ten years ago, my husband and I fell in love in that very room and we’re coming back for our anniversary!) If it’s not available or you can’t tell which room it is, not to worry, we’re still happy to reserve another room, but we thought it was worth a try for nostalgia’s sake!

Crossing my fingers ... so many memories! Best roadtrip ever. (Except for the upcoming one.)

So sweet! I hope you get the room. :)

Yay! The room is apparently 1F, and we have been cleared to reserve it! Steve was quite impressed that we had kept the pictures for so long. At first we thought this was weird, since of course, they're digital pictures, but then we remembered how many pictures we've lost due to hard drive crashes over the last 10 years ...
