Natchitoches, Louisiana

Since the second day of the road trip started super early in the morning I needed some good rest to be able to continue. We decided it wasn't a smart idea  to try camping again so we drove to Natchitoches. We didn't really know what Natchitoches was so we just stopped at the first hotel we saw. We got there around 3 pm and I was ready to sleep. We took a nap and when it got dark we decided to grab something to eat. We figured out where a Burger King was decided to go for it. We had directions to get there and the plan was just to go the same way back. 

You would think that that would work perfectly fine. Well, for us it didn't. All one semi-wrong turn and we were lost! We didn't have the address of the hotel we were staying at and we didn't have a clue where we were! We turned on the GPS and tried to pinpoint where the hotel was, after some time we figured out how to get back and luckily we got there while the french fries were still warm! 

The day after we woke up early and went to the Bayou Pierre Alligator Park. When we got out of the park it was still some time before lunch and we didn't want to eat lunch on the road. We headed back to Natchitoches and decided to take a look at the old town there. 

The old town there is mostly just one street that's called Front Street and then River Walk. While the Front Street has only shops and restaurants, the River Walk has two historic houses that were moved there.

In a week and one day I'll be heading back to Geneva! It's strange how fast this summer has gone by!
