Vegas Travel Diary – Day 5, our last BOO!

After the merriment of yesterday’s wedding today was a bit of a slow start. Poor Chris was feeling rather hungover so we stopped off at the hotel juice bar for a hangover ‘special’.  Naturally I had to take a picture of him chugging it back, ha ha!

I had already been a dutiful wife and made a Starbucks breakfast run so we headed straight to the Mall as we had some last minute gifts to pick up. 

Chris was struggling by this point so we spent the rest of the day by the pool. Unfortunately this meant I didn’t get to visit the ‘Bodies’ exhibition at Luxor as planned.  Yup I’m still a bit gutted by this. 

Chris you owe me one!

In the evening we headed to The Bellagio as we were joining the others to watch the Cirque Du Soleil show ‘O’. 

What can I say about this? Visually it was pretty amazing, and I did really enjoyed it. Story wise though I can’t work out if there was one. I wasn’t the only one either, we left the arena all exclaiming “What just happened?”.  I think that’s part of the beauty of a Cirque show though. It doesn’t have to make sense, as the talent of the performers speak for itself. 

 As we were at the Bellagio this meant we had time to watch the dancing fountains.  Be prepared to get a bit wet, the fountains are very powerful and create a spray. 

Whislt at the Belagio we also visited the spectacular fall/Halloween garden.  I love how they fully embrace autumn in America. Rather than be bummed about the end of summer, autumn and winter is embraced with full on celebration. 

In our wisdom we decided it was a good idea to attempt walking to Freemont street. Umm yes we gave up when we had reached as far as The Wynn Hotel. Whilst everything looks close regret her in vegas in reality it’s not as everything is so big. You have to give in and take a can at some point.

It wasn’t  a total loss though as we did get to see loads of the other Hotels along the strip. When they are it up at night the sight is pretty spectacular. 

After a cheeky last minute gamble it was time to head back to our hotel room to pack for our early morning flight home. 

So that wraps up our trip to Vegas, we had a brilliant time and felt we would have loved to stay a while longer. There is so much to see and do in Vegas one trip is not enough. I would love to go back one day. However there are loads of other places I want to travel to first. Hopefully it will happen one day. 

Oh I forgot to mention yesterday that we had out big ‘Vegas’ win. Yup we win $180 on the slots, go us!
