We were sitting in San Jose airport waiting for our delayed flight to Las Vegas, so we took the opportunity to Skype our parents and catch up on some blogs. We had great seats flying into Vegas it was at night so we had a Birdseye view of the strip lit up in all its glory........WE WERE BACK!!
We arrived late at night and we headed for the imperial palace since we managed to get a super cheap deal, the hotel was in a great location right in the centre of the strip however it wasn't as swanky as the Mandalay bay. The women at the desk 'upgraded' us to a nicer room however the down side was it was right next to the night club......we checked the room out just to see if the room was nice enough to justify the noise.....but the room was bouncing....i had a practice sleep and my head was just rattling............ not because its empty..... because of the racket. So we went back down full of hell.....yeah lets complain......I'm right behind you Lou haha Lou complained hoping to get upgraded again for the inconvenience but instead we ended up in the furthest most darkest corner of the hotel.....i'm not lying it took us 15 minutes to walk to the room......i had a bloody stitch!
The next morning we had a nice lie in since we had no parents this time to wake us up, it was great being back in Vegas it felt like home and its nice to wake up to sun every morning , the temperature in Vegas is practically a guaranteed 90 degrees everyday, top up our tan nicely!! We wanted to do more gambling while we were here but we didn't want to lose our money so came up with a plan........we wanted to join all the casinos as members and........ 'coupon the s*** out of Vegas'haha All the casino's offer incentives for you to join up like free slot play, free playing cards, meal vouchers and food vouchers so we took full advantage.
During our stay in Vegas the second time round we acquired the following.........$100 free slot play each, 6 free margaritas, 2-1 Eiffel tower ride, 2-1 buffet, 2-1 classic car show, 2-1 at steak house,$10 free bar tab each, free Caesars Palace medallion and not too mention the 4 free decks of cards. Best thing of it all, it didn't cost us a penny haha........ Adam and Lou 1........... Vegas 0!! To top things off we actually won $30 on the free slot play they gave us........fools!!
Most of the time we spent our days sat round the pool relaxing and looking in the hotels but it was too hot to be walking everywhere. So we used to cool off in the pool amongst all the dirty sun cream and hair errrr! The nights were spent seeing stuff we hadn't got the chance to previously like.........the conservatory of flowers in the Bellagio and the lake of dreams show at the Wynn, we also got the chance to see the lions at the MGM and take in another cirque du soleil show because we love them.
This time we opted for Mystere which is the longest running cirque du soleil show on the strip and is just full of pure acrobatics, aerobatics and amazing stunts. We got all dressed up and treated ourselves to a 2-1 buffet, all you can eat. I don't know about Lou but whenever i go for one of these all you can eat buffet things i always get nervous or anxious.......... hoping that I'm on top of my game and my performance will not let me down.Haha We sat at our table, my palms were sweaty my heart was racing..... Louise was gone.........already off for her crab legs.
We were determined to get our moneys worth and to be honest we got our moneys worth with the stuff we snuck out never mind the stuff we ate. We took cookies, cakes, biscuits, fajitas ....yes a full fajita!! We didn't just sneak desserts we also took apples, oranges and bananas. With our bags bulging and Lou feeling sick from over indulgence we decided to leave for the show but not before Lou grabbed a candyfloss on the way out haha.............. that's ma girl!!!!
We did intend to go straight to the show but we had too much stock and it was weighing us down so we did a detour to our room to off load the food. The show was amazing and had some mind boggling stunts that I'm still trying to get my head round.... to this day. Unfortunately Louise was still suffering from the buffet which was a shame because she couldn't fully enjoy the show!
The next night we had a little gamble on the slots with our free money we took into account the tips Dwayne told us about gambling............ always choose the end machines because they have a higher probability of winning because when the end machines start going woo woo woo and flash then it entices more people to play so with that tip i picked my machine and starting to play...........5 spins and my machine starts going loopy wooo wooo woo and it starts spinning itself, lights are flashing everywhere my money keeps goingup, me and Lou are high fiving and all the fruit just keep falling into place......awesome!! It all came to an end so I immediately cashed out my....err i mean OUR winnings............$18.00! Best night ever i suppose that money will go towards paying for that joke of whale watching tour........thieves!!!
The following night we headed back to Fremont Street where we had a 2-1 steak and saw the light show again and it was just as good as we remembered..........the atmosphere was second to none.
All the time we were in Vegas we were keeping an eye on the tornadoes that were causing havoc in the states and they were coming so close to Nashville. On the last night I said I would treat Lou to a romantic night on the Eiffel tower ride overlooking the Bellagio fountains.............however Lou catches on quick and realises straight away that all our money is shared so the fact that i say i'll treat her means nothing.......haha...........i got away with it a couple of times before Lou caught on. This is the night we saw the kardashians in the night club. It was amazing seeing the strip on top of the Eiffel tower and seeing the fountains from above was brilliant, Louise was terrified..........sky dive fine but Eiffel tower ......oohhhhh noo!
Good bye Vegas i'm sure we will meet again probably for the Rod Stewart concert!
Off to Nashville now to see the Dunvilles!!!
Love Adam and Louise xxx
