On the 27th November I woke up early grabbed my luggage and prepared to board a 10 hour flight to Vegas Baby!
But let me update you first on what's changed over the last few months...
I got a job! I've spent the last 2 and a half months working in marketing, travelling back and forth to Germany on business trips and meeting other graduates in the TTi programme.
I've also moved to Winchester and am loving it! Okay, the weather is British but I love living more in the country-side than a big city.
I've learnt Britain is completely overcrowded and you will find yourself stuck in traffic about 90% of the time.
I also bought a car! A little red Alfa Romeo and it is simply perfect and cute and adorable!
So back to my American adventures - I'd been invited to join my guy and his family on holiday in Vegas Baby (I feel the need to add Baby every time I say Vegas - don't ask why!).
We would be spending Thanksgiving and Black Friday there - how could I say no?
After a delightfully dinner and night's sleep at Gatwick's Premier Inn we were on our way!
We landed opposite the Vegas Strip, literally! We could see all the hotels and lights from the place - I was getting so excited!
Our big SUV taxis picked us up, handed us some nice cold American beer and we tried to stay awake with our 8 hours of jet lag.
Just off the busy strip is the new modern Aria Resort and Casino Hotel.
After Thanksgiving dinner in the hotel's (expeeensive) steakhouse we ended our wild night at 8:30 tucked up in bed watching Modern Family - jet lag, it's a bitch!
Next morning I woke at 5:30.
I slept in until 6:30 but we were out of the hotel by 8am!!
You could feed a small army for this!
We followed it up with a very long walk down the Las Vegas Boulevard.
We might not be staying in the Bellagio - but we have our own little water show right here at the Aria!
