Govern’s Travel Diary

Friday, 18 Aug 2006

Location: Jacuzzi, Vegas Baby!!!, USA

MapSuccessfully knackered from our first day in Vegas we decided to see the splendour of Las Vegas during the day.

Our first stop New York, New York, casino where Inpurchased the most expensive can of pepsi ever $3.50 which is about 2 quid in English money. however we did go on the Manhattan Express one of the higest rollercoasters in the world standing at 280ft at it's highest point.

With this over and done with we continued down 'The Strip' to see some more of the Casinos on offer in Las Vegas, as well as an awesome burger in the 'Fatburger Diner', an apparent favourite of Elvis Presley.

The afternoon took us back to the Hotel to soak outside in the pool, until it was time to grace Vegas once more, seeing again the Bellagio show and also taking a ride on Vegas' highest ride...Stratosphere which sits on top of the Stratosphere hotel and stands 838ft in the air, the ride then shoots you a further 120ft in the air to give one of the most amazing views I ever have had the privelige of. The ride lets you see all of The Strip as well as all of the residential areas at night in Las Vegas.

Unfortunately all good things must come to an end and so after the day of rides and what can only be described as a turd on one of the most expensive toilet seats inside the Bellagio hotel it was time to head back to the hotel to prepare for the next leg of our so far impressive journey.
