My name is Ramona Kent and I live in Alexandria, Louisiana.  I have been a writer for more than 25 years. From 1990-1994 I was a columnist for Louisiana Sportsman Magazine and wrote a column called “Reptile Tales”.  My column included the stories of local Louisianians and their reptile encounters.   I was a contributing writer for the book called “Snakes Of Louisiana”.

I am a retired herpetologist which is the scientific study of reptiles.  Herpetology includes snakes, alligators, lizards and turtles.  I was previously employed with the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries as a field researcher, trapping, tagging and releasing alligator snapping turtles in the swamps and wetlands of Louisiana.  I have traveled extensively through out the state of Louisiana as well as other places collecting stories for my column and blog.  I have chosen to write this travel blog just for fun and to inform my readers of some experiences off the beaten path…

About this Blog…

This blog will be featuring many of the different travels in my home state of Louisiana, as well as in other states through out the deep south.  Through all of my travels whether they are a large tourist haven or a small out of the way bed and breakfast off the interstate, there is always the possibility for an adventure and new memories to be made.  Here you can read about my experiences and unique travels.
