Viva Las Vegas!
What can we say.. You either love it or hate it. We have two different opinions. Suzanne loves Las Vegas and I, Mark, am not so sure. I think I am more leaning towards hating it then loving it.
While we came from the peaceful surroundings of Sequoia National Park we drove to Las Vegas. After about driving 5 hours through nomansland there it was. An outrages overkill of lights, glitter and drunk people filling up the streets. Or as Suzanne says it; look at all those beautiful lights, and look there’s the Eiffeltower. Look at that cute flamingo hotel! While saying this she has got sparkles in her eyes like a 5-year old. This might be the thing I loved about Las Vegas. Seeing Suzanne so happy and bombastic about all of this.
Just look at that happy face!
We booked a room in the SLS Hotel which was at the end of the Strip. The Strip is the main street in Las Vegas and all the large hotels are along this strip. The SLS is a nice hotel and where else then Las Vegas can you find a hotel with 2 swimming pools, discotheques, several bars and a casino.
After checking in to our hotel we went for dinner to the Wynn Hotel on the other side of the Strip. They offer a unlimited buffet, but not the one where you normally get bumped aside by a granny and where you are left to eat the scraps for dinner. This buffet is a feast! Fresh fish, lobsters, all sorts of meat, fresh vegetables, over 20 different desserts and ice cream flavours. Will writing this, my taste buds are at full throttle again!
Besides a wonderful buffet the Wynn makes you feel like you are in some sort of wonderland. Look at all those beautiful flower decorations.
Later that night we went for a walk along the Strip and blended in with all the other amused tourists. The sparkle in Suzanne her eyes is almost brighter than all of those lights. Especially after seeing her favorite animal, a Flamingo.
The Bellagio hotel is famous for their fountainshow composed on some nice music. Pretty cool to see, but I could not help seeing Bruno Mars on a jetski.
Later that night we found ourselves in New York, Paris and Venice. Now that is what I call travelling with the speed of light. Las Vegas light that is.
You can't go to Las Vegas without doing some gambling in one of the many casinos. We had a great time, but let's say it wasn't our lucky night. We blew a lot of our travel savings in a couple of minutes, but the experience of gambling in Las Vegas was priceless.
After a long day we were tired and we both slept like a baby.
The next day we left Las Vegas looking in our rear mirror and at the same time we said;
"Vegas was a one time thing"
"I don't want to leave"
