    My Trip Report

    This will be our (wife and I, 34 and 36) 4th trip to Vegas in the last 5 years. We are from the city of Durham in the north east of England.

    We'll be staying at The Mirage; for the 3rd time in a row. I plan to gamble about $100 a day, mainly on low roller tournament poker
    (probably at Ti due to The Mirage's poker room undergoing renovation), blackjack and sports betting.

    We will be visiting the Grand Canyon South Rim, watching March Madness Final 4 and Championship Game plus one of the biggest games in English football; Sunderland AFC V N#wcastle Unit#d FC on Sunday 5th April; Go SAFC!

    Most days will be spent by the pool with an ice bucket of beer :)

    Planned restaurants to visit during stay: Smith and Wollensky, Gordon Ramsay's Pub and Grill, Tom Colicchio Steakhouse, BLT Burger.

    (First ever trip report)

    Enjoy your trip. I would be fine with $100/day.

    Durham is a beautiful city.

    Can't wait to read this. $100 a day is about my gambling budget (not including poker money, cuz that's not gambling :poker: )

    Thanks for all of the good luck messages!

    Arrive in Vegas Sunday night 7.30pm Vegas time after flying Newcastle-Heathrow-Vegas with British Airways.

    Loving the football banter by the way!

    I wish we were going on Sunday , I would think being a Sunderland supporter would make a sense of humour a must ..

    Leg 1 - N#wcastle to London Heathrow

    Well here we go...
    Bacon, egg, toast and black pudding washed down with a couple of pints :)

    1 hour 'til departure, 1 hour flight, 3 hours at Heathrow (bar) then ten hours of watching films while we hop over the pond (hopefully I get a steward that will give me 2 cans everytime!).

    Safe travels. I'm insanely jealous right now as I look out the window and see the rain pissing down, as per the usual here in England. Have a great trip.
