The journey ends in Vegas...........

This is a little late compared to the other holiday posts but better late than never, right?
Our final stop of our epic holiday was in Las Vegas. The best place to end a holiday like that. What a fun place. After all the walking, sightseeing and driving we did, it was nice to be in a place where you can just hang out and do nothing. So we did...well we tried.
We stayed at the Luxor...lobby
We did a bit of gambelling and checking out a few of the hotels and their casinos on the first night, slept in the next day, went to the pool for an hour but got tiered of chasing the very small shady bit and just lying around there.....I burn too easily and do not care about tanning at all (even if I did tan) so we decided we need to do what we do best. Look at stuff and learn.
We went to Lake Mead and the Hover Damm. Very impressing!!! And the best is all the Art Deco details everywhere. Loved it.
outside the Venetian
As a German, I had to go and see stuff from other fellow Germans. If Roy's accident hadn't happened and their show was still on, I would have so gone to see it.
The of course we did more walking and checking out casinos and hotels, went to see The Secret Garden of Siegfried and Roy with some of their beautiful cats and dolphins (didn't know they had any dolphins)
YUM, all Jelly Beans
New dress (and the last one I made for this journey)
This window display was amazing. I would be happ with only one of them...or maybe 10
we quoted the film The Hangover A LOT!! in Ceasars Palace
bumped into Elvis and Bowie hanging out on The Strip
and then had to go back home :-(
Once we got back we had the Coming-home-to same-old-blues for about a week. Then had some running, biking and sewing rehab and got bac to normal. We are already saving for our next trip.
We are thinking about going to some of the national pars on the west coast.  If you have any tips and suggestions, please share!!!!!!!!


  1. I'm so jealous! I freaking love Vegas

  2. I saw Siegried and Roy's show, and while it was amazing, I think I might have enjoyed seeing all those lovely animals in the Secret Garden more. You look like you had a wonderful time! I recommend the Redwood National Park/Forest - amazing how small you feel in there.
