    Blue Man group was pretty ok. If you haven't seen it yet check it out. It'fun for 1 time.

    My neighbor was drunk as f*ck and started yelling and raising his hand everytime they seeked someone in the audience. allminwas thinking shut the f*ck up dude I'm sitting next to you. Don't think he will remember anything tomorrow . At the end he stayed in his seat when rest of audience stood up. Think he was unable to stand up without help at the end lol.

    Was awake this morning at 6am so decided to call it a night for today. (Yes on a Friday in Vegas sleeping at 0.30 am, shame on me).

    My vegasbuddy(smerrian) thought i knew you..although the netherlands is a small country and i have some dutch vegasfriends i dont know them all:goofy:...anyway nice TR.....also good job on the diamond and going to Paris pool(love the paris pool much better).........(last 5 years when going to vegas i also stay at ballys jubilee room.....also diamond so good offer from my host last time i stayed 24 night and payed less than 200$ although my host wasnt so happy with me as i didnt gamble so much->only lost less than 1 k and i dont played slots or vp)..funny im guessing which dutch train station you came from (my journey is from hilversum north to schiphol and than mostly united stop in awful chicago ..lay over couple of hours and than vegas ....so im also thinking taking KLM next time will save me at least 10 hours in travelling time for about 250E extra) ..as you are diamond dont forget your 100$ dining credit (i did gordon ramsey s steak at paris last time only costed me 20$ tip as bill was 100$->for pics see my tr from last time) and your 2 free shows!!(we are dutch right?:thumbsup: ) furthermore a nice visit to Diamond lounge caesars is a must (will cost you 10$ in comps though but they have some warm food from 4:30 till 6 and unlimited free drinks) furthermore unfortunately ballys spa closed but as diamond you still get in spa for free at flamingo/harrahs and PH(i love the spa)..............anyway good luck and have fun!!!:lock:

    @vegasnut no not all dutchies know each other haha. Thanks for the tip about Gordon Ramsay steakhouse was still undecided which restaurant to pick.

    Think about using that $100 on Wednesday. Just way too much people everywhere now.

    And the 2 show tickets I also have to decide which shows. Can you split the 2 tickets between 2 shows? Arghh so much to do so little time :).

    Today shopping day. Need to go to Best buy or Target for some Google Home stuff shopping. Saving around 45% by buying it here. Shame nest hub max is not out yet :(

    After that premium outlet south probably just like every other person that is in Vegas right now . But savings are huge this weekend.

    Be fair, @vegasnut , you said you had a NL friend from the board going to LV and taking the new KLM non-stop. And, having been keeping up with this TR, I asked if it was 'manni-something'. I'm worldly enough to know that even if you both were from Hilversum it would be doubtful you would know each other.
    Carry on @Maxmanni .
     
    Can I just move here?
    3 weeks. Yikes!

    Ok so daytime was nothing special. Went to Best buy for some Google home products had to take 202 bus, let's say different kind of vibe compared to the strip .

    [​IMG]

    After went to premium outlet south. First of all, all deuce busses stopped their service at Mandalay Bay and turned around. Think this has to do with the amount of people on the strip. So at Mandalay Bay I had to wait for another 20 min for the next SDX bus :(

    Was very crowded at outlet bought some clothes at Calvin Klein that's it. Will go to the both outlets tomorrow.

    [​IMG]

    My room has perfect view at flamingo and Cromwell parking. It's really entertaining to see the same cars circle around 4-5 times at the flamingo parking with nowhere to park.
    Need to remind myself if I stay at flamingo, just park at Cromwell

    [​IMG]

    Tonight nothing special planned let's see where the evening/night brings us. Tomorrow night will be the downtown night, 90's concert with al.l my big heroes on Fremont Street hahaha.

    @Maxmanni your view looks like you have a room at the former indigo tower (they remodelled those room about 1,5 years ago....they call it now resort rooms(instead of indigo rooms)....pretty nice room(my brother stayed in it) i always prefer the jubilee rooms (near strip)..not because of the nice view (right @smerrian ?:woohoo: ) but sometimes you do have noise there (especially if your just behind elevator like i was last time or if you just above the chateau nightclub...but we have earplugs now just in case) and in your tower you dont have noise at all...have fun and keep us updated!!!:thumbsup:..
    edit: yes you can have 2 seperate showtickets(go to ticketbox in ballys just from your resortroom go to vip diamond check in 100 yards before on your left you see the ticket box..first with your id and caesars rewards card you go to the second counter..there you get a voucher with that voucher you go to the first counter and there you get the ticket(s)

    Indeed resort room. 20th floor at the far end of the hallway, big pro no noise complaints from drunk people passing by :).

    The non-stop KLM flight is amazing. You land at the perfect time 2pm and departure back is at 4pm can't get any better. You land just before the BA flight so no line at immigrations. It's pretty expensive compared to other deals sometimes (€600 - €700 vs. €350-€500) but you can't beat the comfort and flight times. Booked this trip with my flying blue miles, only paid €180 which includes 1 checked bag.

    For today, grab some breakfast, premium outlet north, pool time and downtown. Free concert @Fremont street https://vegasexperience.com/calendar/event/free-concert-i-love-the-90s-featuring-vanilla-ice-montell-jordan-all-4-onetone-loc-and-coolio/

    Tonight I hope to show some more gambling pics, yesterday evening was extremely busy no fun @casinos that busy.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Promised some gambling

    Nice hit on Willy :).
    Also got a first press bonus on Batman vs. Batwoman machine of $103. Forgot to take picture.

    Lost some of it won some back you know how it works.

    All in all up $300 so far.

    Downtown is packed like sardines at the moment because of the free 90's concert. Didn't know it was closed off with security check etc. No way I was gonna stand in line for 45 min.

    Getting some dinner now at Cadillac in the Golden Nugget. Bit less crowded but still busy like hell. Realized I didn't had anything to eat since this morning.

    Had fun yesterday evening downtown. Somehow I always have more luck gambling downtown. Eventually up around 250.

    It's a bit cloudy today, even some rain around 7am.

    Check the picture comparing resort world tower vs. Wynn/encore towers. I get why they sued .
    Btw since last Tuesday I have not seen any progress at that build. My Lyft driver said he doubted if it will ever open.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I had the same room view last weekend, I was in the 21st floor. You are right, it’s nice to be at the end of the hall so the loud drunks aren’t walking by.

    Yesterday was a bust. During the day got a sore throat, typical Vegas AC cold :).

    Got a myvegas reward for MGM Grand dinner buffet. Glad it was free, quality was pretty bad and little choice to choose from. Really has gone downhill since last time couple of years ago.

    Today is last full day did some walking this morning and souvenir shopping. Bacchanal buffet planned for the evening and some gambling as it's the last night.

    Included some random pics from yesterday and this morning[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Late to the party but following along! This is from days ago but it is great you were able to lift the seat arms and stretch out like that for such a long flight. :thumbsup:

    Best thing is, i think I can manage the same thing again on the way back if I check the current seat map. Again not a full flight. This would be awesome because it's a semi red-eye flight (Leaving at 4pm). Bailey's on the rocks and zzzzzz.

    Fingers crossed :)

    Btw chilling at the Paris pool. Anyone who stays at Bally's just go to the Paris pool much better.[​IMG]

    Half day further and we are back in the Netherlands.

    Last night at Bally's was a bit strange woke up at 04.30 because it was hot in the room. Noticed all power was out, bit confused but ok 30 min later everything was back up. Next morning found this on nightstand on the other side from where I was sleeping lol.

    Spend my last dollars on some gambling without luck. Best days where the first day and the night downtown. All in all think down 100 for the trip, happy with that.

    Flight again was a breeze, row for myself and slept for little more than 3 hours. Trick is just pick your seat as late as possible before check-in and pick a paid preferred seat.

    I'll be home in 1 hour and need some sleep zzzz.

    Thanks for following along. Think it will be another year maybe longer before I'll be back in Vegas. First want to do some Asia trips (Hong Kong and Tokyo)[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
