Hello everyone! Rob here from good old England. I've only been to Vegas one time, but i've just recently booked my second trip which will make it two trips in 12 months, which isn't bad for a micro-roller a few thousand miles away if you ask me! I hear the phrase "Disneyland for adults" mentioned a lot when talking about Vegas, and I completely agree with it. The sights and sounds are so intoxicating and there's so much to do. Casinos over here just dont have the same atmosphere. It may not be such a big deal to the Americans here, but the experience of a shooting range for an Englishman is very alien and very very cool too. It's not really something we can do over here. I loved the amazing feat of engineering that is the Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon is simply breathtaking, so for me the attraction of Vegas isn't just about the Strip and the casinos, I do like to be a proper tourist about things. I stayed at Treasure Island on my first visit, which was to celebrate my 30th birthday and also my dad's birthday which was just after mine. I liked the fact that it was a little smaller than some of the other places I visited on my trip. Or in the case of Venetian/Palazzo, a place I just got straight up lost in! I'd love to stay in the Aria or Wynn/Encore some day, maybe i'll have to wait a little longer between trips next time so I can afford it. I'll be staying at the Mirage on my next trip which is booked for October, which i'm really looking forward to. Not celebrating anything this time, just fell in love with Vegas and needed to go back! I'll be taking a Vegas virgin with me this time so despite only having been once, I guess i'll have the role of the "expert". I guess I haven't spent long enough in Vegas yet to really have any stories that I could call amazing, but there was one little thing that stuck with me from my visit last year - me and my buddy were getting a beer from the bar outside the Absinthe tent before a show, and the barman asked us (as many did) where we were from. We told him we were from Yorkshire in England, and the presumably American barman then executed, without being prompted, a perfect Yorkshire accent for the rest of the time he was serving us Im looking forward to posting here, especially in the 6 and a half month of buildup to my next trip. The trip reports are pretty amazing to read. See you around the boards, folks!
