As one of my promised posts during my 100th, I made certain that I hit this place. I didn’t even have to convince the boys to go with me, they immediately affirmed it as soon as I mentioned it to them. So one weekend, we drove out of the state of California to a city that never sleeps (wait! that doesn’t sound right -that’s New York) … to a city that needs no alarm clock (better? oh well), to the City of Lights (urgh … that’s Paris) to the city of blooming bulb business… to The Vice City (Miami) screw it … to the Sin City, Las Vegas ………. Baby!
Here’s to a travel destination where, literally, it’s a must! to allocate extra time and money, … and control to be able to get out of it. Las Vegas didn’t get it’s moniker Sin City for random reason. You can easily get blinded by forceful temptations out there. This is where indulgence tastes so sweet until your wallet gets thinner and your guilt grew sick. It’s like one big candy store for adults. If you decide to come here, lay out your goal, better set your limits, come prepared and stick with the plan. Else, all the glittering glows and ding-dinging sounds will lure you to the depth of your conscience and your wallet.
I still managed to click The City of Rock and Roll (Don’t ask me, I don’t know.) amidst the activities we planned for that night.
We really planned to wander around at night. Glad my camera held up for the challenge.
My weekend in Las Vegas was short and bitter, and well, “sweet”. We headed to the City of Angels to drop one of us and headed home all the just next day.
I do plan to go back to explore more. I just need to learn not to give to temptations. Don’t worry. Nothing that will alert my girlfriend. :D
As for the very interesting and exciting thing that happens to me in Las Vegas …
… stays in Vegas. *sticks tongue out*
Here is livvy. She’s been posting about one of the country I long dream about going, Ireland. She surprised her viewers when she hits the U.S. covering this same city. Unlike me, she was able to find this famous fabulous sign. And, she has better pictures of the fountains of Bellagio during the day and at night. So forget about this blog for now and head out to this amazing photography galore blog, A Year in Life. Travel other destinations such as London, New York, Portugal, Morocco, Seattle and more … through her blog.
