Thurs 26th April So, this is my 20th trip to Las Vegas in 10 years, I was going to Vegas with a friend from work who is even more of a veteran than me. This would be his 39th trip, my trip started with a stay at a hotel at the airport. I was getting ready when I got a text from my friend who said his dog was ill and he couldn’t leave him, this was now a solo trip. I checked out and got the hotel shuttle bus to the terminal. Check in was easy and I was through security and into the lounge. I had a couple of beers before my gate was called. I was flying with Virgin Atlantic and was booked in Premium and in an aisle seat on a block of four. There was only another guy on the opposite end of the row so, there was plenty of room. It was a nine-and-a-half-hour flight but there is a good entertainment system. I watched The Last Jedi and to be honest was disappointed with it. We landed in Vegas and it felt good to be back as always. I was off the plane as quick as I could and got to the immigration hall which had quite a long queue. Eventually I got through and my luggage was waiting for me and got a cab to Tuscany. The driver asked which way I preferred to go and he was after tunnelling me. I told him no tunnel and he still went a weird way though, he went via Koval which isn’t a way I had gone before. I get to Tuscany and get checked in and I’m in block C which is on the front of the property. I unpack and get freshened up and head out. I walk up Flamingo Rd and my first stop is Cromwell for a drink. I then have a walk through Flamingo and end up on the Linq promenade, I have a walk down to Tilted Kilt for a few drinks and I get talking to a couple of guys from Dallas. After they left I then get chatting to a guy from Boston, after a while he is moving on but says he will be in The Yardhouse if I want to have a drink in there. I finish my drink and move down to Yardhouse. I met up with the guy from Boston and we had a drink and was chatting about cars when the guy sat on the other side of me chimes in. He works for Aston Martin and has something to do with the racing side of it. We had a good chat as we were all car guys. I left there after a couple of beers, which were paid for by my new friend from Boston. I walked up to O’Shea’s for a couple of beers and to say hi to a couple of the bar staff. It was then time to go back to Tuscany as I need some sleep after a very long day.
