Leaving a cold but exciting snow covered mountains of Whistler, Matt and I head to Vancouver for him to catch his flight home and for me to catch my flight down to Las Vegas to meet Darren, Anne and Dave.
1 hour and 40 minutes later I land in a very windy Vegas, so windy in fact rumor around the airport was that it was going to close, It did shortly after..
Darren and co flight was due in half an hour behind me but canceled from Amsterdam due to the plane being over booked, So first night was on my own in Vegas, I received a txt from Darren saying the hotel Luxor are expecting me, I head there via the airport shuttle and walk into this enormous pyramid, unbelievable the pure size of this hotel, I head for check-in and I am told by the receptionist that my room has already been paid for by Ms Anne Turner, so thank you Anne again for that.
The room was very nice, I dumped my stuff and went to look at the sights, the casino was ahead of me, the atmosphere of noise and slots machine was what I expected from Vegas, I found a place to eat and had lamb shank and a nice glass of red and just people watched looking over at the gamble tables and slot machines.
Once I eaten dinner, I decided to go for a stroll, and get outside to see the neon lights of the strip, The hotels with all there own themes and looked amazing.
I walked down so far and decided to head back, due to wanting to see the rest of the sights with Darren, Anne and Dave, so I went back to the hotel room and got some rest.
Darren flight was now due in at 13:50, so I looked around a bit more in the morning then headed for the airport to welcome them to Las Vegas.
That afternoon they were tired obviously due to Jet lag, so we went down to the pool and relaxed, that night we had a buffet in the Luxor, then headed out to see all the sights, The only thing we bet on was a slot machine, I put in $3.00 and left with $11.00, that was it my betting was done for Vegas. We just walked through each hotel, I especially enjoyed the Belagio, we made it all the way down to the stratosphere, Jet lag was kicking in for the guys so we headed back to the Luxor and called it a night.
The next day we got our hire car and headed for the Grand Cannon.
All the best
