Viva Vegas!

Et voila! Uploading the photos of our Vegas expedition as promised. It was fun, fun, fun! On the day we arrived, the Stripe was relatively quiet because it was a Tuesday. After eating the Todai buffet, we headed towards the Premium outlets in the South. Once again, we underestimated the amount of time we'd spent at the outlets. We only stopped when the shops were about to close and we packed soup from Whole Foods and burgers from Five Guys for dinner. The staff was really nice - he gave us some fries to munch on while we waited for our order.

The next day Julio from Grand Adventures picked us up early from our hotel, New York New York, for the Grand Canyon tour. I don't usually join tours but I've got to say it's one of the best tours I've ever been on. It wasn't just the places that Julio brought us to - Hoover Dam, Seligman, Grand Canyon (of course) - it was the way he introduced us to the area. I was fascinated by his stories, and he kept us looking out for rattlesnakes, eagles and California condors along the way. He also showed us the best spots to take photos - we owed some of the daredevil poses to him too!

The last two days at Vegas were spent at the Premium outlets as well, this time in the North. The weather was absolutely gorgeous. We also had better time management, having highlighted the shops which we REALLY NEED to go the night before. I'm rather surprised that we managed to pack everything we've bought in our bags without buying extra luggage. It's surely a miracle, to say the least!

Viva Vegas... and long live our fantastic memories there!

We love shopping!

Do I get a discount here too?
