I'm planning a solo trip in January 2012 and one of the places I wanted to visit in the south is New Orleans. I've done quite a bit of reading and there's a lot of things I want to see - graveyard tours, eating of yummy food, soaking up of the atmosphere, shopping and general wandering about.
However. I'm a 34 year old woman travelling alone. That doesn't bother me generally (I kind like it) but I don't like to party, I don't drink and generally I prefer to do my activities during the day and be happily tucked up in my quiet hotel room by 6-ish (do you see where the boring comes in?).
So what's the verdict? Am I too boring for New Orleans? Would I be better off in a less vibrant quieter place? Am I missing half the excitement of New Orleans with my grandmotherly practice of early to bed? Should I just skip it this time around and wait for a friend to join me?
