A FEW PLACES FROM RORY'S STORY:
• Drive south…down Hwy 14 past Boone’s Corner to Hwy 27, and keep on heading south into the Cameron Prairie National Wildlife Refuge. That little drive is officially called the “Creole Nature Trail.”
Just before you enter the Cameron Prairie, the Creole Canal joins up next to the road, and pretty much runs alongside the rest of the way through that part of the Refuge, and it’s always fun to look for alligators, nutria and all the big birds as you drive.
•Lacassine National Wildlife Refuge - Here you can keep an eye out for fish for largemouth bass, sac-a-lait (also commonly known as white perch, crappie), sunfish, catfish, and Choupique, (pronounced “shoe-pick”, a Choctaw word meaning “mudfish”). Choupique are considered “living fossils” since they have changed very little since the Paleozoic period, and are also harvested commercially for their eggs, as caviar.
• We fished for bass, bream, and white perch.
ADDITIONAL NOTES IN REGARDS TO THE LAPINA’S QUESTION THIS EPISODE:
We don’t mention Italy as a bordering country, and for us, when we’ve gone and checked prices for surrounding countries it has never been a cheaper/more viable option for us and what we were planning with our concert tours and such, but it can’t hurt to check into flying into Milan and Vienna and see what you find.
Also- It is likely more expensive, which is why we didn’t suggest it, but you can always fly into one country, and take the train or a cheap flight (i.e. easy jet or ryan air) to your main country or another bordering country and rent a car in a different country. Just because you fly into Germany, doesn’t mean you have to rent a car in Germany. You could rent a car in Paris or a small coastal village if you can get there by train.
