Jun 10, 2005 - Las Vegas

After the relative disappointment of San Diego and Los Angeles (too noisy, too dirty, too crowded ( it may just be we spent too much time in New Zealand) we were pleasantly surprised by Las Vegas. The hotel Circus Circus on the strip has a RV campsite in its backyard which s surprisingly comfortable and convenient. Considering we are in a prettified car park we have two play parks, a swimming pool, laundry, shop circus, funfair, all you can eat buffets and as much gambling as you can take. The boys (and us too) love Las Vegas. We all have...

Jun 5, 2005 - Death Valley to Vegas

From Death Valley, we headed to Vegas, where we had booked the Golden Nugget hotel. We stopped off for some food at the Hard Rock Hotel, partly because Karen had seen a food programme that recommended one of the restaurants - Mr Lucky's 24/7 - and partly because she had also heard that it was a celebrity hangout. The food was good, but still no celebs. We checked in late and toured Fremont St. - the old Vegas, where the Golden Nugget is located. Incidentally, the Golden Nugget is across the street from Binion's Horseshoe, where the annual...

May 30, 2005 - Las Vegas,NV, USA

Vegas was great. We are not into gambling, yet the Vegas is surreal enough to be very entertaining. The exception was the XX Street experience, that was converted from the fun thing that it was about 5 years ago into one of those cheesy, fake patriotic displays that uses nationalistic feelings for commercialism. Not only that, but it was technically poor, too.

May 6, 2005 - Viva Las Vegas

So today we've arrived in Las Vegas, Nevada after our brief trip through Death Valley, CA. It's wonderful to be somewhat near civilization again.... though it is questionable how civilized Las Vegas really is. Truly a fun town, mom and I walked down the strip enjoying the completely over the top, tourist tacky hotels and casinos. Navigating through one is nearly impossible. We also went to go see the Cirque du Soleil show Mystere - Mom's seen it but we both thought it was spectacular. If only we could go see them all... So tomorrow takes...

May 5, 2005 - Road Trip USA!

Hey everyone, we've been busy, busy ladies since the last time we wrote. On our last full day in LA we went on a guided tour of the city which took us to all different parts of the city. Some highlights were seeing different movie stars houses in Beverly Hills and a wee tour round Bel Air where we saw the Fresh Prince's mansion. Around this time we spotted Matthew Perry having a wee coffee at a bar. Next was lunch at Venice Beach then a trip round the 'hood. All together now..."Inglewo-o-o-d". On Sunday morning we picked up our wee silver...

May 5, 2005 - America 1

2 weeks around Californai was a whirwind look at such a large,expansive part of the world. After San Fran we shot through Death Valley, where James had a ride on a snow mobile heaps of snow still around thru the Sierrra Nevadas. Then on 2 Las Vegas - what a blast. Rachel was totally exhausted but James and I were up walking the streets of the sparkly tinsle town until about 1 in the morning. The lights and music outside the casinos were as good as any fireworks display. 11am we departed for the Grand Canyon, pulled in late to the GC Village...

Apr 30, 2005 - Santa Barbara to Las Vegas.

We finally made it out of town! The trip to LV was fairly easy. We didn't even get lost! After checking in at Circus Circus KOA, we met my client/friend Tony Hunter. He treated us to the best Italian food I have had in years. We had a great evening telling stories, eating great food and drinking Italian Merlot. After dinner we went to the Bus for a shot of G3 and more stories. We didn't get to meet Tony's son (Anthony), but have invited them to come see us in Santa Barbara. Happy Travels, Art

Apr 27, 2005 - Viva Las Vegas

After driving through the desert from the canynon accross into Nevada it was quite a sight to see the massive Hoover Dam. We stopped here to look at it before driving into Vegas. This was quite a sight of a completly different type! We drove along the strip seeing New York New York hotel with a model of the New York sky line, Paris, with the Eiffel Tower, and Caesar Palace with the colosium to name a few. After being blinded but all the glitter and lights we found somewhere to stay. We choose Circus Circus hotel, all themed like a circus....

Apr 19, 2005 - Death Valley to Las Vegas

Today started out wickedly windy! Holy cow - we were both shocked at the wind in Death Valley. Overall though, we can't complain about the weather - for being in the hottest place on Earth, last evening it was a perfect temperature and today, it was a nice sunny warm day (with wind). We checked out the Sand Dunes and drove through the rest of the park before heading to Las Vegas... Michelle doesn't do well with altitude changes, so Jenn drove for the first time on the trip! We arrived in Las Vegas around 4, got our room and were both happy...

Apr 15, 2005 - Las Vegas

With an eight hour bus journey punctuated only by a brief stop at Barstow (skankiness personified) we arrived in Vegas, where waiting for Terry at the Greyhound station it became pretty clear that downtown Vegas does not purvey the glitz and glamour of the strip. Arriving at Terry's, however, was like being given the keys to your 5 star hotel suite - an interior befitting of a design magazine, a pool and Jacuzzi set in a gorgeous yard and a guest bed so big you had to extend an arm to touch. Pictures and paintings lay testament to Terry's...

Apr 15, 2005 - Viva Las Vegas

After a minor detour through Sedona we hit the trail to Las Vegas. Both looking forward to cleaning the Casinos out and winning back the cost of our trip. Driving in from the south we had the oppourtunity to visit see the Hoover Dam. From here Vegas was only a stones throw and so we arrived late afternoon. Quite a change from the peace and tranquility of the Grand Canyon. Finding a hotel on the Strip we made our way down to the casino floor with our $100 per head kitties. Mr. P. sticking with Blackjack, Mrs. P taking up roulette. Our first...

Apr 7, 2005 - Viva LAS (Las Vegas)

VEGA$ BABY! A good way to get someone out of your mind is to go to Vegas. I went for a night with my cousin Dennis. I flew Ted (United's low-cost airline), while Dennis took American (he's a mileage freak). Both flights took a quick 47 minutes, but it was good they did not depart at the same time. That gave Dennis enough time to rent a car and pick me up. But I have no idea why he rented a car. We were only going to the Strip, so that was a total waste of money. THE hotel We checked into "THE hotel" at Mandalay Bay. This was my first time...
