Sep 27, 2004 - Viva Las Vegas

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.

But dont you worry we didnt sit in...

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 - 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...

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...

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 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...

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...
