On the road again – and a Las Vegas Virgin

After two years without a vacation trip (spending all our money on real estate upgrades), we decided to treat ourselves to a week’s vacay in Las Vegas. I had never been and it was definitely a place I wanted to experience once.

I was only here less than 24 hours before I realized that my friend Girl Gone Good was in Vegas at exactly the same time. How weird is that!?! Her blog is great. She has a plan and updates it regularly with content about health, nutrition, fitness and travel, unlike me, who only remembers once and a while that I have a blog!! Her posts have inspired me to write about my Las Vegas experience, proving that every Vegas experience can be completely different!

After about an 8-hour, two flight journey, we arrived in Las Vegas just before midnight, local time, which put our bodies at about 3am!

We were going to just take a taxi to our hotel, but at that time in the night, the shuttle was just as fast and a little bit cheaper ($15.00 for both of us).

We failed in finding food and finally crashed, not really sure of our relative location on the strip, or any of our plans for the week.

The 32 year old bear, Cuddly Crocket, who was thrown in the garbage by a VIA Rail porter on the last adventure (another story that’s still ongoing) came with us in spirit, as he appeared after we boarded the plane as a photo bookmark. He would have loved this trip!
