Viva Las Vegas

In July of this year, my dearest mother gave me one of the finest gifts I've ever received for a Birthday- a ticket to Las Vegas. Now I've never really had a fascination with going to Vegas, it was always a "If it's on the way" kind of destination for me. Two nights in the city where the lights are bright and the thrills are cheap changed that ideal for me forever!

Vegas is one of those cities that has to be experienced to be believed. From the moment we touched down at the airport, it felt like I had entered some kind of Virtual Reality where time doesn't exist and outside titles didn't apply, in Vegas you can be whoever you want to be for a little while.

For our hotel we chose to stay at Circus Circus- mostly because this is the hotel they filmed 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' in and we are suckers for gimmicks like that. You could spend a week in Vegas and never leave your hotel, they have everything in them- Casino's, Restuarants, Shops, Theme Parks, Bars & Clubs.

From an Eifel Tower to a Statue of Liberty- Vegas has a little bit of the world all rolled into one strip. Even if you don't like gambling, just walking around the Casinos and watching people is entertainment in itself.

It's an amazing, surreal city that everyone should visit at least once in their life. I'll be back one day for sure!
