For those of you who are not from Louisiana, the spelling of the word “geaux” may seem a bit odd. Technically, it is not really a word outside of Louisiana. It is a French word-play on the verb “Go” and will most often be heard in Baton Rouge during football season by fans of Louisiana State University. Some common game day cheers are “G-e-a-u-x, Geaux Tigers, Geaux!” or “Here we geaux Tigers, here we geaux!”
I decided to use this version of “go” in my blog name in order to incorporate a little Louisiana flavor. Obviously, the “geaux” represents the travel portion of my subject. I presume that the “eat” and “drink” are universally explanatory! This name comes from the reaction of many friends who follow my various travels and ask me if I just eat and drink my way through where ever I happen to be. When you think about it, that is exactly how I travel. Fortunately, there is also a ton of walking involved in most destinations that I visit. What follows is a collection of all of the eating and drinking that I do when I am on the G-E-A-U-X! I do hope that you enjoy.
