I’m half way through my Vegas trip and I’m genuinely struggling to find the words to describe how awesome this place is. It’s true what they say, Vegas really is like Disneyland for Adults! I’m having the time of my life. It’s quite odd being on this kind of trip; I’m used to sleeping in hostel dorms and bartering for friendship bracelets with the locals. There is bartering to be done here in Vegas, but it’s usually over the price of a Limousine or a Party Bus. Partying, gambling, expensive casino’s and luxury hotels (with their own Roller Coasters!) this place is like nothing I’ve ever experienced before.
Of course there is more to do here than just drink and gamble. First of all there is the food. Incredible. I’ve been eating Pancakes, eggs and bacon for breakfast, huge corn beef sandwiches for lunch and last night I had the tastiest steak I’ve ever had over at Caesars Palace. From cheap burger joints and Pizza stands, to plush 5 star restaurants, Vegas has got all the food you could want. Then there is the shopping. Every Hotel and Casino has its own mall, some featuring the likes of Louis Vuitton and Gucci, others H&M and Topshop. Then there are all the discount stores and my favourites, the tacky gift shops filled with Las Vegas t-shirts, lighters and hats.
Then there are the big activities to do, such as the Grand Canyon, which we are doing tomorrow. Eeek! I’m so excited, I’m here with a few others, and six of us have booked ourselves onto a 5 star helicopter ride over Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon. I’m a little nervous about riding a helicopter for the first time, but I’m hoping I’ll be so busy taking in the views I won’t have time to be scared!
I’ve been Vlogging and taking photos so I’ll be doing some proper Vegas posts when I get back (plus my Blogtober post, I haven’t forgotten). But for now, make sure to be following my all my Instagram actionand all my tweets over the next half of my Vegas trip.
