Travel: Las Vegas – Photo Diary

I can’t believe it’s been a whole month since I packed my bags and headed out to sunny Las Vegas. The holiday blues have hit me hard this past week so I thought I’d share some photos of my trip with you guys and attempt to relive some of the fun times. I hope you don’t mind.

Our holiday began with a trip to Las Vegas to see my best friend in the world marry the love of her life. I can tell you, Vegas is just the best city in the world to visit with a group of your nearest and dearest. Windowless casinos leaving you wondering if it’s even night or day, drunken shopping in Sephora, visiting haunted museums, this trip had it all; and this was only the beginning.

Never in my life have I felt the need to do a round of jello shots before draining six bottles of champagne for breakfast (no joke, we actually did this) but in Vegas, it just felt like the norm.  If you ever find yourself in that part of the world I can wholeheartedly recommend the Wicked Spoon Breakfast Buffet, do yourself a favour and add on the unlimited booze option. It’s $15 well spent!

The famous Flamingo Hotel was our base for the 3 days we spent in Vegas and  that pink flashing monolith served us well.  The hotel had everything you need and more, fancy a diamante Elton John cap, they got that!  The rooms were spacious and functional, certainly not flashy but hey you’re not in Vegas to spend time sitting alone in your room, am I right?!  Staying at The Flamingo? Get yourself down to the pool for an afternoon of sunning yourself surrounded by people that wouldn’t be amiss in an episode of Jersey Shore, a real fun experience. Just make sure you don’t buy the $30 margarita…

Stay tuned for my New Orleans and Memphis photo diaries. Have you been to Las Vegas? What was your opinion on the real city that never sleeps?

    Las Vegas looks amazing but it’s never been a huge appeal to me. Does look like you had a great trip though. I’m interested to see your Memphis ones

      Honestly, I felt the same way and was more than ready to leave after the 4 days was up. I thought, 'that's it, I've done Vegas now'. But now I'm home, I'd love to go back.Memphis was great, Graceland was possibly the best day of my life!Katie xoxo
