    Hey all, ah what can I say this site is so freaking addictive, I loved it so much I had to join just so I could part of the epicness! :rolleyes2:

    Hmmm, a little about me you (of course or else this introduction thread would be rather redundant:confused2:)

    I'm a recently married 21 year old from little ol' New Zealand, aka that small place where Lord of the Rings was filmed, who has always been quite in love with all things American...so much so I even used to joke to my mum that some day I'd marry an American, she never believed me. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED. CHALLENGE COMPLETE.:thumbsup:

    I've been to America twice, LA, Memphis and Las Vegas. I must say the first time I went to Vegas I absolutely hated it *gasp* but I think that was down to the fact that I was 17 and with my dad - not exactly the best circumstances in Vegas. I didn't think I'd ever feel compelled to go back, but my darling husband, who's from Philly had never been so I started to plan and investigate and suddenly two months later I'm OBSESSED with Vegas and can't wait to go at the beginning of next year!:woohoo:

    Phew end of long post, sorry I can never be quick and to the point!

    Why thank you so much!! It's funny I seem to have this love affair with America but Americans seem to be totally in love with New Zealand, well at least you and my husband are :D

    Thank you for the welcome!

    Now there's a fantastic city! (And Vancouver doesn't exactly suck, either, unless it's the one opposite PDX. lol)

    Ugh, amazing photo Ken!...I take it for granted living so close to the beach and having such spectacular views but it's very sweet when my husband gasps in awe as we're driving home because of the stunning views of the ocean and what not :D
