This Friday it brings us great pleasure to announce our sweetest Favourite Follower yet! Her name is Lindsay and she is a self-proclaimed “maker, taster, and lover of all things icecream in search of the perfect scoop”. She is the founder of scoopadventures.com (bookmark it immediately – you won’t regret it), which documents this epic ice cream quest, and she is the lovely face behind the twitter handle @scoopadventurer – which is how we know her.
We met online (rather unofficially) a few weeks back. We started getting some great recommendations from @scoopadventurer and her husband @keithclendaniel about restaurants to try out in various cities we have been through, though we didn’t know they were a pair until we met officially this week when they invited us into their home in New Orleans!
Being hosted by people we have met along this journey will never grow old for us – we cannot get over how generous people are with their offers of hospitality. And Lindsay and Keith really went above and beyond for us when we came to town. First of all, their home is absolutely beautiful. It is a historic shotgun style home in the Irish Channel neighbourhood of New Orleans, and we had such a restful sleep there. But on top of that they took us to their favourite local ice cream shop, Creole Creamery, AND met up with us at W.I.N.O for a wine tasting last evening. What amazing people – we cannot say enough how much we enjoyed meeting them.
I am going to wrap up this post now because I have a lot of ice cream crusades to catch up on at www.scoopadventures.com – the photos of the ice cream she makes (which Lindsay takes herself) are enough to keep me glued to the site!
