    My Trip Report

    Well, this will be my first tripreport in english, so please don't bash me to hard for all the mistakes i'll most certainly make. I've done a lot of trip reports before, but obviously all of them in german language.

    So, everything is packed up and ready, and i am enjoying the evening before flying out. Feeling reminds my of the night before Xmas back in my childhood days...

    There are no specific plans right now, just have a good time and relax. Of course there will be gambling and food of all kinds, and a slotpull set up by @Lucky7

    I have 10 nights comped at the Excalibur, which is fine for my needs and i will take part in a slot tournament at Luxor, so let's see what will be the outcome of that.

    If i can manage to do so, i will try to make this report kind of semi-live, but if everything fails i will continue after returning home.

    Everything is packed up and ready, and my boy Fennek really isn't happy that daddy will be away so many days...

    Hope you have a wonderful time. Don't worry about your English - it looks great so far and we are all used to drunk ramblings of English speakers that often take rereading the post a few times to understand.

    That is a LOT of cigars! Is that an every day thing for you or a vacation indulgence?

    Thank you! I'm not drunk by now, but i can't imagine how my posts will look like while i AM in Vegas.
    I take more cigars with me than i think i will enjoy during this trip, but i like to have a wide selection to choose from depending on my mood. It is an indulgence on vacation, but i do a cigar 2-3 times a week after a hard day of work to unwind and relax, or while taking a long walk with the dog. However, during that occasions i usually choose some lighter and less expensiv cigars.

    Have a wonderful trip! It's nice to see a fellow German on the board. I grew up near Frankfurt, and moved to the states when I was 10.
    Mein Deutsch ist nicht mehr so guht, aber hab eine wunderbare reise!

    Your English is excellent. Far better than my high school German will ever be.
