If you’re friends with me on Facebook or follow me on Instagram then you probably already know that I’ve been in Las Vegas.Yup! Vegas Vegas Vegas, it’s like music to my ears.
Just like in New York City, I went to Vegas with my family, Sherrin & her mom (Tita Gemma). We stayed there for 3 days and 3 nights which clearly wasn’t enough, well at least for me. When we arrived at the airport, slots machines were already there to welcome us.
At first, I thought that Las Vegas was for adults only because you know the first thing that comes to everyone’s mind is GAMBLING. But no, Las Vegas proved me wrong. It has so much more to offer than just CASINOS. Skydiving, sightseeing & riding a chopper are one of the many I could name and the list can go on. Frankly, I wasn’t as excited knowing that I’d be flying to Las Vegas, but as days passed I realized that I did not want to leave the place. It was too beautiful.
During the morning, everything seemed normal & at peace. At night is when everything happens. It was indeed very mesmerizing especially the lights. If I were to pick the “City that never sleeps” I wouldn’t even second guess about Las Vegas. I’ve been to NYC but Vegas is where I really felt the nightlife. The people and the place were so alive, the street lights from the hotels made everything look and feel so amazing to the point where I was just there and thought “Wow, so this is Las Vegas”.
Since Sherrin & I were not 21 years old or plus, we weren’t able to experience the City as much. That’s why even before we left, we already talked about wanting to go back there once we’re old enough which I’m already excited for.
We got 3 days ticket for the Big Bus that gave us a tour of the whole City during the day & the night as well. Our hotel was located on the Strip so with the bus, we had a chance to see the part of Downtown too.
Not to mention, it’s a desert climate there that’s why it was incredibly HOT especially during the day.
The bus tour was hop-on-hop-off and we also had choices of where we wanted to go or what we wanted to see.
At night, we went to Downtown but for me, the Strip is much better because it felt much more alive.
For whatever reason, something about the Strip made me fall in love with it. Maybe for the fact that they had a hotel themed like Paris and had a mini version of the wonderful Eiffel Tower. They couldn’t build one just like the one in France for the location is way too close to the airport so I guess that it would have been too high.
If you know me personally, you probably know that it’s one of my dream to visit and step foot in France, Paris to be specific. I hope that one day I’ll get the chance to visit Europe.
Anyhow, you also surely know my love for my hometown the Philippines which I am looking forward to seeing again very soon, hopefully. So the fact that Las Vegas had Jollibee, Max’s, Red Ribbon & Chowking made me extremely happy since of course, they didn’t have them here in Canada which sucks.It really sucks.
In addition, I also got to reunite with my baby, Alden.
Even if it was nothing more than a cardboard of Alden Richards standing, it drove me crazy. The security guard was simply looking at me wondering what the heck I was doing and I asked him “Sir, can I bring this home?” he then laughed & looked at me saying “Well, I don’t think you’ll manage to bring that home”. Anyways, it’s not a coincidence. Destiny maybe? Haha, it’s definitely nothing other than FATE.
I love you always Richard Reyes Faulkerson Jr.
We also got to ride the world’s highest Ferris Wheel where we got to see the view of the whole City. Although it would have been nicer at night with all the city lights but despite everything, the experience was incomparable.
Here’s a little something to wrap up the whole Las Vegas adventure:
You know what? I seldom say this, but Las Vegas, you got my heart. You can count on me, I’m definitely going to be back, and better. I can already picture going there with my best friends in the future, it’s indeed going to be chaotic.
I suggest you guys experience the city itself because I’m telling you, it’s going to be worthwhile.
Travelling is surely something I love, I mean, who doesn’t? It’s one of the gifts you can give yourself because the joy it gives and experiencing the different places, the culture as well as the people, is nothing any material thing can give.
So I hope all of you enjoyed/ are enjoying your vacation. Wish you all the best.
