Arrived Stateside: Vegas
Posted on June 6, 2014
I woke up to the news that my flight was delayed which added a further five hours to my travels beacuse I missed my original connection.
Overall the journey was equally fun and hellish. The latter part being stuck right next to the toilet for five hours meaning I couldn’t get any sleep because of the toilet traffic, but I did get to meet a lovely couple who were off to see Guns N Roses for their 11th wedding anniversary, so all wasn’t lost.
Checked into the hotel, unpacked, showered, caught up with the girls and then tried to get some sleep. I woke up about an hour later as somehow a little black cricket was in our room chirrup-ing away by my suitcase! Cricket was caught and let free and then sleep came willingly.
7 hours later I was wide awake, I figured it was probably best to try and get back to sleep but there was no chance. So I crept and took this photo while the girls were asleep. We have a poolside room and it looks gorgeous!
After a massive brekkie, registration and a bit of a chill by the pool we wandered down to the strip.
It’s hot here, hotter than usual in Vegas too, so we spent the time going in between the casinos and we went up the (not real) eiffel tower. I am terrified of heights so it was a bit of an achievement going up there.
The first show (Movers, Shakers and Innovators) was amazing, special shout out to Bella Blue who was amazing and danced to a cover of Stripped by Depeche Mode. She blew me away!
I’m havig an amazing time, BHoF is excellent and the people here are lovely!
