I’ve written a lot recently about our amazing honeymoon adventure that we went on this summer to the West Coast of the grand old USA. We had such an incredible time, spending the month together going to different places. We were busy every single day. Unfortunately all good things must come to an end and at the end of August it was time for us to visit Las Vegas one last time before heading back to rainy old London.
We flew from San Francisco and I was desperate to get back to Sin City. I fell in love with Las Vegas pretty much from the moment we arrived on the 29th of July and it still consumes a significant chunk of my heart. Like true love, I can’t even pin point the exact reasons why I adore it so much, it’s simply just an overwhelming feeling of happiness and home. I really didn’t enjoy San Francisco as much as I thought I would and you couldn’t have got me onto that Jet Blue flight quick enough and back to the dessert.
We stayed in Paris this time and it was perfect. Such a great location and gorgeous hotel. It was wonderful watching the Bellagio fountains and being so close to everything. Vegas never sleeps which is awesome when you are jet lagged or running out of time for things.
Of course no trip to Vegas is complete without seeing a show and we (okay, I) chose to see 90’s pop sensation Britney Spears. I’ve always been a fan of Britters and have seen her ‘live’ a few times. Her Vegas show was by far my most favourite. It’s a wonderful celebration of her career, and includes all of her hits. There wasn’t a soul in the room not singing and dancing along. The show itself was very aesthetically pleasing and you can tell that a lot of thought has gone into the production. It was also nice to see her in a more intimate setting. I’m so glad that they have extended her stay, I would definitely go again if I find myself back in Nevada.
There were some of her iconic costumes on display, it was really nice to have a nosey!
On our last day we cruised around in the Mustang and stuffed our faces. It was a brilliant end to an incredible experience. Sadly, before we knew it we were dragging ourselves kicking and screaming back to normality and temperatures at least twenty degrees cooler.
