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.

As a girl from Louisiana, I have always had a bit of an adventuresome spirit. And Louisiana has always provided me with countless opportunities to experience its rich cultural heritage. As wonderful as Louisiana is, I still have this overwhelming need to experience the world beyond my state boundaries. This wanderlust has taken me from the marshes of Louisiana to the temples in Kyoto, Japan to the magnificent cathedrals in Spain to a dinner party at the home of a merchant marine in Venice. In each of these places, I have been fortunate enough to meet new friends who have shared their culture with me. What began for me as the exploration of places nearby, has evolved into an adventure to places far away. It has been my lifelong dream to share my passion for authentic travel experiences with others.
