#OneTimeInNOLA a miracle filled a local cemetery with sacred oddities.
When yellow fever hit New Orleans 1867, Father Peter Leonard Thevis called upon Saint Roch, the Patron Saint of Good Health, to protect his congregation. The priest vowed to build a chapel and cemetery in the saint’s honor if his prayers were answered.
Church history maintains that none of Father Thevis’ congregation died of yellow fever during the outbreak. Today, Saint Roch’s cemetery and chapel stand in the St. Roch neighborhood, where locals continue to seek the saint’s blessing for their ailments.
The chapel is filled with a century’s worth of offerings – crutches, prosthetic limbs, and other medical relics – left for Saint Roch by recovered parishioners as tokens of gratitude. The shrine is now one the most unique religious sanctuaries in America.
New Orleans is full of tucked-away curiosities like the Saint Roch Chapel. Discover 300 years of incredible stories waiting right outside your front door. #BeATouristNOLA
A great tip led us to hiking up behind the castle. Past donkeys and goats. To a small hole in the back wall that you have to squeeze through. Castles can be fantastic because the sheer magnitude of their presence can be overwhelming. But it’s even better when it feels like you snuck one over on them. Could easily see how addictive a good conquest could be.

I am torn as to whether or not I actually liked Plitvice Lakes.....
It is very beautiful and the water is stunning, but it's definitely not quiet nor peaceful here.. more like a zoo... .
Obviously, it's the famous National Park of Croatia... meaning it attracts an insane number of tourists..
Like. Insane. Number.
Maybe I'm just a bit of a snob now and have high standards for Waterfalls & National Parks... .
I would love to see it in Winter frozen over and covered in snow ❄ (and with no tourists)

Kaas plateu, in the Western ghats of India, in sahyadri mountain range. These flowers bloom only for a month in year, in the month of August. Many tourists visit this place to witness this amazing sight.
In place like this you'll truly understand the impact that humanity is having on the world and I mean that in negative way. I wouldn't be surprised to know that in the old days, places like these were aplenty but due to unabashed use of resources, we are ruining it one after the another. So, when I was here, even though I knew that they strictly control the no. Of tourists, as a nature lover, couldn't help but feel guilty.

My biggest fear was that Sarah’d end up with a upset stomach but luckily she tolerated everything thing, of course I was careful with the water she drank. Just in case, to play safe I packed fever, diarrhea and allergy medication
