Dec 3, 2004 - Vegas, Baby, Vegas. USA.

My arrival was inauspicious, Mexicana Airlines had delivered me to Vegas but my luggage was still somewhere south of the border. Here I am, in the desert in winter 5C temps and all I have is a t shirt and shorts, fortunately the casinos do not have a strict dress code. My luggage arrived after 24hours in Mexico City and I was set to hit the city. The best news is that I am winner, three days and every time I sat down at a casino to gamble I walked away a winner. Roulette on day 1, Texas Hold Em Poker on day two and more roulette on day 3....

Dec 2, 2004 - Las Vegas

Hi All To summarise, Vegas was everything we expected it to be and more. Highs, lows, tears, laughter etc etc. We arrived just after lunch time, checked ourselves in and wandered off to find some graze. Fortunately/(unfortunately), we were very close to the strip and we soon found ourselves in a casino, and then another and then another. It was actually a good first night for me cos I scored $750 on the slots and came out $500 on top at the end of the night. The next day, we got picked up for a tour of Lake Mead and Hoover Dam which was...

Nov 24, 2004 - Las Vegas to LA

We arrived in Las Vegas on the 18th November and spent out first night (well day and night) in a nice hotel/casino on the strip. Due to a severe case of Jet lag we managed to sleep all afternoon and all through our first night in Vegas (not a good start!). We then moved to a hostel further down the strip in downtown Las Vegas where we stayed for 3 nights. Vegas was good everything was really big! Hotels had shark tanks, aquariums and lions in them!!!! It was a crazy place! From Las Vegas we got a Greyhound coach to LA. It was awful!! We...

Las Vegas Day one By far the most tiring part of the trip so far.We started the day with a game of golf in Hawaii before catching the plane out of Hawaii at 9.30pm arrived in LA just after 5am the next morning with the flight lasting about 5 hours and the rest of the time being taken up with changing time zones. As usual, no sleep on the plane. About another 5 hr wait at LA airport before finally getting off to Vegas. Booked into the Aladdin resort. Very comfortable room with a magnificient view out to the mountains & overlooking the...

Hey Hey Hey Sorry we have been awol for a couple of days, we didnt have access to the internet in our hotel and once we were enconsed in our palace of a hotel in Las Vegas we didnt leave.

Sep 24, 2004 - Las Vegas or bust!

Tigers, singing fountains, bursting volcanoes, majic tricks and trapeeze! That comes nowhere close to describe Las Vegas but it gives you an idea! I got here and instantly got ripped off in the cab, he didn't set the meter so it cost me a fortune, I later found out I could have ordered a stretch Limo for the same price!!! My first day here was a bit of a flop to be honest. I have come down with a cold and with the lack of sleep on to p of that I spent my first few hours here in bed watching Harry Potter! That evening I went to meet...

Sep 14, 2004 - Vegas with Bush

Vegas, vegas, vegas. What can i say about Vegas? It was grand, it was excessive and it looked heaps better at night. And the machines ate my money relentlessly. We got to vegas late, it was about 10.30pm before we'd booked in and managed to get food, it was a Monday night and fairly quiet. We did have a great time and as promised there was free booze as you crammed your money into the slots even though our efforts to bribe the waitress with tips so she'd come back more were wasted. La managed to attract the attention of some American idol...

Sep 12, 2004 - LUXORious!

We promised you suprises! We checked into the Luxor Hotel for a couple of days of luxury! The Luxor is a hotel that's shaped like a pyramid (and is at the posh end of town). We made the most of the occasion, checking out the pools and all of the gambling! As we walked through Helen decided to open up her "slot machine account" by popping a couple of quarters in to one of the machines. On her SECOND pull of the handle she won 150 quarters back! The machine went crazy!! Flashing and buzzing!! The money just poured out! Helen has a lot of time...

Sep 12, 2004 - Las Vegas, Meeting Mum. (Groundhog Day)

In a move that Bill & Ted and Marty McFly would have been proud of we left Sydney at 10.30am and arrived in Los Angeles one hour before we left. We had a four hour wait at Los Angeles Airport before our flight to Las Vegas. This was cut short by a 90 minute wait to get through immigration (welcome to America!) However, the wait was then extended by a delay in our Vegas flight. We eventually left 2 hours behind schedule for our short flight to Las Vegas where we met Mum/Dianne*, who had been waiting for three hours. We went to pick the car...

Sep 12, 2004 - Vegas

Greetings! How crazy is this? Three hurricanes this year share the same name as four of my family members - and they're not all your everyday names. First came Hurricane Frank (my father and brother); then Hurricane Georgette (named after my sister). Now there is Hurricane Jeanne -- which is the exact spelling of my mother's name. Don't worry about Hurricane Johnny, though. I checked storm names for the next four years; the coast is clear (no pun intended). Last week we flew from New York to L.A. on JetBlue, as I prepared to speak at a...
