The year 2015 marks the 25th and 20th anniversaries of Eric and Nicoline. On May 22 they are legally married for 20 years, and on October 8 they are together for 25 years. We have thought about how to celebrate this event as a family, including Mark’s girlfriend Jenny. After bouncing around a number of ideas, we decided on a road trip—for old time’s sake. And the destination we agreed on was New Orleans.
Everyone’s schedule aligned on the first week of May. All of us are of drinking age (an important consideration when going to New Orleans) and exams are done. We decide on the “ultimate road trip experience” by driving down from Maryland to New Orleans in one day, then schedule three whole days in the Big Easy before taking two days to drive back.
