I did a very short report for this but I thought after doing a more detailed trip for my visit in October I thought I would do one for my trip in May 2013. Sun 26th May For the first time it was not only a solo trip but also the first time I flown direct to Vegas from the UK, I was flying with Thomas Cook and we left Manchester on time for a 10 hour flight, it was the longest flight I had ever taken, but after watching 3 films (Oz Great and Powerful, Last Stand and Jack Reacher) and having a book to read as well the time didn’t seem to drag. I landed in Vegas about 12 noon and it was the first time I had arrived in Vegas in the daytime, I was quickly off the plane and was second in the queue for immigration, I was through quickly and went through to baggage collection and as usual mine was one of the last ones off the belt. I went through the exit doors and was greeted not only by the Vegas sunshine and the heat that went with it but also a Thomas Cook rep who handed me a welcome pack, as I headed for the taxi stand. It was a quick ride to Tuscany Suites and Casino where I was staying , the queue for check in was fairly short and it was nice and easy to check in and I was soon in my room and what a room, something like 600 ft sq , the bathroom was big as well, I unpacked and then jumped in the shower to freshen up before getting dressed and heading out. I had never been in Vegas in May so it was a lot warmer than I had experienced in previous trips, I had read a few reviews on various websites about Tuscany and one tip was to take the short cut through the back of Bally’s which I duly did and made my way through to Paris and out on to the Strip, this would be a route I would become very familiar with over the coming week. I made my way up to Planet Hollywood and the Miracle Mile shops, by now I was hungry as I hadn’t eaten since the flight so I headed to Blondie’s to get something, I had a tuna melt sandwich with a beer to wash it down while I watched the various sports on the many screens that are in there and some girls playing beer pong. I made my way back on to the Strip and continued my walk around getting down as far NYNY and stopping for a beer in Nine Fine Irishmen, I then made my way back to Tuscany via various casino’s, I made my way back through Paris and in to Bally’s and attempted to get back on to Flamingo Rd via the back of Bally’s, but after a direction failure I came out of Bally’s but not the exit I was expecting. Eventually I get back to Tuscany and have a play on the slots and move on to VP at the bar, by now it’s early evening and tiredness is kicking in so I head back to the room for a rest, when I get to the room I take a look at the welcome pack I was given at the airport, most of the stuff I know as it’s my 4th trip to Vegas but one thing that does interest me is a trip to Los Angeles, I notice that there is a meeting with the reps the following morning at Ri Ra pub in Mandalay Bay, so I decided I will turn up and find out some more about the trip to LA. I lay on the bed and soon droppped off and I woke up about midnight, I decided that I can’t be bothered moving and set alarm for 8am and I go back to sleep.
