    After reading for some time we thought its time to say hello!

    Who we are:
    We are a married couple (wedding 2005 in Las Vegas :eek:) from Vienna, Austria. My wife is Bettina (36), I am Manfred (38)

    US/Vegas history:
    As long as we can remember we are big fans of the US, so all the vacation time we have goes to your country. We startet on the east coast and Florida back in 1994. In 2001 we visited Las Vegas for the first time, and since then we come back again, and again and again..... Since 2006 we visit Vegas twice a year. Usually in May/June as part of our 3-4 week summer vacation, and in december as a christmas gift to us.

    Why Vegas?:
    1) High end hotels, good food and a lot of fun for a relatively low price
    2) Gambling
    3) shopping
    4) Sun and heat
    5) Gambling
    6) of course gambling

    Where we stay when in town:
    I think we stayed almost with every major hotel at the strip and some off strip hotels. For years we called the Wynn our homebase, but since our gambling budget increased and the offers we got from our host decreased we first moved over to Bellagio/MLife. Our new favorite for now is Four Seasons. Moving to MLife (we are Platinum-Level) was the best idea ever, as we now get much more goodies than we ever got at the Wynn.

    Whats our game:
    We love slots! Nothing more to say ;-)

    Well thats about it! Feel free to ask every question Vegas related or not :eek:

    Greetings from Vienna
