Bye Bayou

In my blog tour yesterday, I came across a terrifically appropriate post on Yoga Gypsy's page The post is entitled "Tips for the traveling yogini." How appropriate is that? She has some great advice, which it took me a bit to figure out on my own. So, if you like, you can save yourself the hassle of learning as you go and check out these useful travel hints. 

Today's sequence uses some moves from an earlier travel post I did, but with a few tweaks and additions/subtractions. 

Chris just said, "We're good to go, girl." So, I guess it's time to hit the road again. Bye, bye NoLa. I'll post pictures later.

As an addendum: I wrote this post starting around 1pm central, but just got into the hotel room to post it. See time stamp to understand sadness. Oy vey... traveling.
