Travel Fun!

It has been so long since I posted, you'd be forgiven for thinking I'd dropped from the face of the earth! Well, it's not that I dropped from it, I just traversed it a little :-)

This Wednesday just gone, I returned from an (almost) three week trip to the USA, it was a big adventure, and I had the most amazing time. Actually, I think it was my favourite trip of all time!!

I'll fill you in on all the details over a little while, as I've over a thousand emails to go through still, bags I need to finish unpacking, and a whole bunch of life to catch up on - as well as adjusting back to this time zone ... but I'll let you know about where I started my journey...

My sweet friend Linda and her husband had a work function to attend in Vegas, and it was organised that I'd meet them there. Jerry wrangled that I'd be able to participate in the work activities, and we had the most amazing time.

We stayed at the Wynn hotel, quite new and absolutely stunning!!

This was the view from our room - I don't remember the number of our floor, but we were quite high up, and could see for miles!

I was mesmerised by the floral displays in the lobby area - this was just one - it reminded me of a parade float. I could have taken pictures for hours!

My arrival was around 12.00 on Friday, and we were whisked away to a wonderful lunch. This was followed by some shopping and exploring the strip. Then after dinner that evening, we were treated to the most amazing thing- the Michael Jackson Cirque du Soleil show. Ohhh, it was mesmerising!!

The next day we did more shopping and ventured further along the strip - we checked out the fountain at the Bellagio, gambled a little, and got ourselves some souvenirs. Then we had to race back to our hotel, as there were more treats in store. Saturday night we were treated to an amazing formal dinner and the best was afterward - a private concert by the band Train! Linda and I were kicking ourselves that we didnt' take our phones down with us, so I'll try and get some pictures from Jerry to share. Let me tell you that Train were amazing, and even though I loved them before, I love them even more now!!

I have a bunch more pictures, but I won't bore you with them - unless you want to see them of course - I'm sure you've all seen a ton of Vegas shots :-)

Sunday we didn't have much time to ourselves, we breakfasted in the hotel cafe before we had to trot on over to the airport to head to San Jose - home for Linda and Jerry, and for me the next step of the journey.

I snapped this pic thru the window - I love the patchwork of fields down below, and knew that Camo would appreciate seeing the engine from the plane ...

Well, that's it for today - I will check back in really soon when I've sorted out my pictures some more and figured out what to do with all my purchases!!

Sounds like you had a great time! Las Vegas is one of my favorite places to visit. My husband and I got there for Xmas every other year.

Traveling and seeing new sights is exhilarating! I just got back from Vegas, too. I loved soaking up the warmth of the sun.
