    My Trip Report

    So I suppose I better start now, just at Manchester Airport for a flight to Heathrow. Stopping at a hotel there before flying out to Vegas tomorrow. Not much planned for this trip, going to be a chilled trip as been working a lot lately and needed that break.

    No Tuscany stop this time but will be visiting, taking in the delights of Downtown this trip and stopping at El Cortez. It will also be the first time I will be in town when the Superbowl is on.

    At Heathrow now, just a drink or 2 before the flight. It's got a sight delay but not too much and should be in Vegas just before 6pm local time. Thanks for all the good luck messages, have to see if my spot at the Tuscany casino bar is still lucky. 15805637829762468320317707971492.jpg

    Off topic but that coffee cup and saucer are beautiful in their smoothness and simplicity. Love that big handle too and the coffee looks yummy.

    Wishing you great travels across the pond!

    The guy serving me at the airport bar sounds like an English butler, he probably talks like Micheal Caine on his days off.

    I like people watching and Vegas is just the best for it, airports are also good as well. Just seen a guy dressed like he was going cycling. Blackl lycra pants and a bright pink lycra top. Also looked a bit like Weird Al Yankovic.
