Sep 9, 2004 - Las Vegas Baby!!!! - UPDATED!

Welcome to Las Vegas! So today we travelled to Vegas. It was supposed to be a simple quick one hour flight from San Fran to Vegas - but this is the US and nothing is simple here... Everything is big! We got to the airport 3 hours ahead of boarding! Oh Yes!!! Well and truly early! Big respect to San Fransisco International Airport! Great sign posting - we had no problem getting the car back and getting to check in! Hertz also have done a sterling job! We felt like VIPs with our Mazda and checking the car back in was really straight...

Aug 5, 2004 - Viva Las Vegas

3rd August - Left London. Francis very sick and threw up on the plane. Sarah ate my lunch as well as hers. Got ripped off by horrible taxi driver on arrival. The casino on the ground floor of the hotel is bigger than our local supermarket. And by the way... No. We did not blow all our money. No. We did not get married. No. We did not get Elvis tattoo's. Just thought we'd get there clear first. What an amazing city. The heat is outrageous (42 degrees on arrival), and it hits you like a slap round the face. The hotels, the architecture and...

OK, we have made it through Chicago without serious injury, we went to the top of the Sears Tower on our last day there and the views were impressive. You could see right accross Lake Michigan and all of dowmtown Chicago. Kerry-Ann managed to stand next to the glass and look out, no mean feat for someone scared of heights!! We stopped off in China Town and had great food (you will notice there will be lots of references to food on this trip as our days are planned around eating (well Shaylyn's eating mainly). After a very early start we...

May 25, 2004 - Las Vegas

You know you've arrived in Las Vegas when you get off the plane and there in the airport lounge are pokie machines! There were more pokie machines next to the conveyor belt where you pick up your luggage - absolute madness! I caught a shuttle from the airport to the hostel - named 'Sin City hostel' - it was in a good location as I just had to catch the bus from outside the hostel down to all the casino's. I met Eimear (an Irish girl from Co. Cork) at the hostel and we decided to head down to the casino's for the night. We ended up going to...

Aug 22, 2003 - Las Vegas

I left Santa Barbara at about 11:30 after having a nice breakfast with Hava at Cajun Kitchen. I was hoping to make it about 150 miles before having to stop for the first time, but no such luck was to be had by me. Just west of Santa Paula I rode through a swarm of bees! Bee guts were everywhere...the windshield, my helmet, my gloves. Fortunately the stop was somewhat short and did not impede my trip for too much time. Everything else on the ride went pretty well. Hit a little traffic and quite a bit of heat, but I didn't let either...
