Spent one night in Scottsdale, Pheonix which was a very lazy day.. We spent the afternoon at the pool in 105 F improving the tan.. Jay has told me that I'm one of the most tanned people on the trip... Get in!!! :D
We had to make an early start on Saturday.. Len and Soph had to be up at 4 to go on their hot air balloon ride.. And me and Josie almost missed our coach as our alarm didn't go off and had to be ready for 7.45 and guess what time I woke Josie up... 7.45!! We got ready in 3 minutes!! Not cool... We really needed Mummy Len at that point!
We travelled to Sedona, Arizona, also known as red rock country! It's loads different to anywhere we've been so far.. We seen REAL, yes REAL cowboys.. With guns and all.. The town was like something out of a film.. All we needed was a horse and lasoon (think that's the right word) and I would've been away!
After that- we took a trip on the windy roads to one of the wonders of the world.. The grand canyon where we will be spending our next two nights... Me, Josie and Soph sat on the coach floor most of the way playing cards with our Aussie friends.. Me and Soph got pretty much screwed over.. Soph has also come out with some crackers, as in as thought that toilets on the planes & trains were just let loose.. Very blonde moment from a very intelligent girl- who would've thought she'd done a masters! Definitely not in transport though!
Arrived at the Grand Canyon and it was imense.. Did not expect it to be so huge.. Learnt that 90 or 9 (can't remember) people have already died by falling off the edge this year.. Probably 9 as 90 sounds a bot extreme. That's put great faith in the next two days with my reputation of being clumsy.... And on the note of clumsy.. I have a embarrassing story.. Walking back to the coach.. I only decided to fall on my bum in front of 52 people that I've just met and my hugggggeeee & growing crush for Jack the tour guide & cool dude Richie! Got on the coach and every one just laughed and clapped at me- couldn't have got more embarrassing if it tried.. Got Jack to notice me though- haha- not quite in the way I wished I must say!
Got to our hotel/lodges about 5ish and had a brief scare when we thought there were no showers in our room.. I would've been on a one way flight back home! Luckily, this was a hoax and we had cute lodges.. POA for tonight is for many drinks with our new buddies in a lodge.. How country!
Drinks in Dan's lodge got incredibly messy with two litres of vodka being consumed by us four girls.. So as you can imagine we all got pretty smashed.. We played "I have never" and ride the bus and we all learnt alot about each other and the rest of our group! Josie and Suzanna (one of our new friends from Manchester) got lost on our resort. Bad times! I woke in the middle of the night and asked Elena who she was, and everyone found out about my huggggeeee crush on Jack, which now I'm pretty sure he knows about! Pahaha.. All fun and games hey?! We had some laughs at Jay's (one of our new Aussie friends) music playlist as he had vengaboys.. That's low even on my standards!
8am, Sunday morning.. Helicopter over the grand canyon... Buzzzzzing!! Hangovers didn't even occur as the view was brilliant.. Sounds cheesy but it took my breath away! We had two french people with us and the guy was like a mime.. So maybe it's true that all French people's are mimes! It was hilarious.. Elena got to sit up front in the pilots pit so had the best views- Jealous! She also thought that she seen a vampire below on the ground.. Soph and Josie aren't too convinced but really, I'm hoping it's true.. And will back her til the grave!!!
Once we got back to the hotel, me, the girls, Suzanna, Danielle and Jay decided to go on a mini hike... And mini is one way to describe it! We walked for twenty minutes, sat on a bench for forty minutes and walked back.. The heat was unbearable and we were all in a mega lazy mood- so headed back to the hotel and chilled for most of the day!
Spent most of it chatting outside with Jay and Sam and we taught them what a foof was and now that's what they've started calling it.. It's hilarious! Also, taught them lots more and had lots of laughs about mostly dirty things- these Aussies are bringing us classy girls down! The guys have also named a really fat girl on our tour, dragon. And Dan's challenge is to slay the dragon before the end of the tour.. Funnyyyyyyyy!!
Sunset arrived.. Approx 6.45pm and we went to a spot called Hopi Point. We sat with lots of our group whilst the sun went down and was a really nice evening! Bed time at 9.15 after preparations, Nails etc for Vegas... And preparations to wear heels in the first time in 3 weeks.. Sort of looking forward to looking half decent for a couple of days!
Leave for Vegas in the morning and I am ready to parrrrrrttttyyyyyy hard with everyone... This could be a remake of Hangover One with us four girls as a combination, as we are trouble with a capital T!
Any howwws... Partying hard for the next two days then chill out time at Bass Lake.. Will write after Bass Lake!
