you should pack. The EDC (or Everyday Carry) for traveling fitness junkies is incredibly simple and takes very little baggage space. You’ll likely be eating and drinking more here, so packing workout gear for your trip is a very good thing. Here is what we suggest.
Few tourists and many a local know of the amazing food coming out of the unassuming Verti Marte in New Orleans. Part grocery store and part delicatessen, the Verti Marte is a legend amongst locals who frequent the eatery for "hit the spot" comfort food usually while inebriated or shortly thereafter. This popular drunken munchie/post hangover eatery cranks out some of the best sandwiches and southern food around.
If you find yourself in the Big Easy in need of a serious classic cocktail mixed with a bit of old world charm, look no further than the Sazerac Bar at the Roosevelt Hotel in New Orleans. Walk out of the historic French Quarter and enter the Central Business District (CBD) continuing to 130 Roosevelt Way. Stroll into the majestic Roosevelt, take in a deep breath to let it all sink in, and continue on your journey to the Sazerac Bar within the Hotel.
It all started with frustration and a love of fitness and travel. Let's start with frustration. I'm talking about the dark reality that sets in when when you realize you can no longer eat, drink and party the nights away without severe consequences (primarily an ever expanding waistline and epic hangovers). It gets especially challenging when you travel, something we learned after spending 1 year traveling through Asia. So you can deprive yourself of life's great pleasures and be deeply depressed as life goes on, or you can try something different. We choose different.
