    My Trip Report

    Hey everyone,

    The most magical day of the year has arrived and I am writing to you from London's Gatwick airport at almost 6am(GMT). Flying out to Las Vegas on a Virgin Atlantic flight arriving at 1PM(PST)

    There are 4 of us. Myself, My MUCH better half, my best friend and his better half. Staying at Luxor for the first 7 days when friend and friends other half will depart and myself and the missus will continue on for 4 nights at Park MGM on a comp and a 3 night stay in a suite at the Bellagio. First time in Las Vegas for my missus so thought I'd treat her to something fancy.

    I'll likely try to keep this updated once a day with a summary of the day, food and gambles features highly on our list of things and hopefully there will be photos galore, if I remember to take them. Will be wheels down in about 15 hours and will take it from there.

    Others trip reports have gotten me through the dark no Vegas times and I hope mine can do the same for others

    Bye for now!
    Cal

    Have fun! I'd be interested in your thoughts on Park MGM (we're staying there at the end of Feb). Check in, rooms, casinos, food, etc.

    Well day number one was eventful. Had a delay to start the day so made it into LAS at around 4pm, my friend then got pulled aside for additional questioning at immigration which ate another 2 hours (they asked him a grand total of 1 question about an expired work visa) But eventually we made it to Luxor and checked in.

    We got one of the remodelled pyramid rooms, I was expecting a horror show of a room based on peoples reviews of it and was presently surprised.

    We freshened up and grabbed a quick bite to eat but no one was especially hungry, they feed you ALOT on Virgin Atlantic flights. There was a small amount of gambling done with the usual highs/lows and I finished the day a grand total of $4 down..almost a win and I'll take it.

    Sorry there isn't much more of an update but we have all slept now and have a full day of shenanigans ahead which will hopefully make more entertaining reading.
