Throwback USA trip (part 1 - Las Vegas)
9 years ago next week my family and I took a trip to America. I found photos from our holiday and thought I'd do a 2 part throwback posts (the LA one will be up next week). We went to Las Vegas for 3 nights and went there first as we were going to my Dad's friends wedding.
We took off from London and that was the first time I'd been on a plane (and out of the country) and I don't really remember how I felt about it (now the thought of being stuck on a plane for hours makes me super nervous), but my brothers and I entertained ourselves with the TV. The only bad thing I remember about flying was that my ears popped most of the time.
We landed in Vegas and I remember it being cold in the airport because of the air conditioning and when the doors opened and you walk outside, the heat just hits you and I wasn't expecting that. We got on a shuttle bus to go and collect our hire car, got our hire car and then drove to the hotel, which was Excalibur.
Within the next couple of days we visited different places. We walked down the Las Vegas strip and visited other hotels like Mandalay Bay, Luxor, Treasure Island, MGM and New York New York etc. I liked visiting all the other hotels, they're all really nice. We went up the Eiffel Tower and Stratosphere, both of which had amazing views. On the top of the Stratosphere there's a few rides which my Dad actually went on one.
On our last day in Vegas we went to Hoover Dam in the morning which was cool to see. Then later that day we went to my Dad's friends wedding and then headed to Downtown Vegas for food.
After our few days at Vegas, we headed to LA! The LA post will be up next Friday.
Have you been to Vegas? Would you like to go to Vegas?
