    Thank you, Bubba! Good to see you too! And I do feel the love, sitting behind my PC with a smile from ear to ear all day today.

    The hip situation is resolved with great success. I'm a hippy girl again. You should see me walking haha! No duck walk anymore (or at least I hope not!).

    Hahaha, that's the movie with the fries & mayonaise, yes?

    Thanks for your love for the MSS TR. Because of your rating I was triggered to read it again and it was really fun to refresh the memories.

    Because I have to travel so long to get there (up to 24 hours door to door), I cannot just go a weekend here and a mid-week there, but have to do one big trip hopefully per year, but sometimes I have to skip a year due to circumstances. And since we have a lot of paid holidays in my country (25-35 or even more working days per year, including the holidays, excluding sick days), I can just take 15 days out of my holidays and go for 3 weeks. The price of the flight stays the same and I have a year to book-cancel-rebook my rooms until I pay really a minimum amount for rooms. I can usually keep the costs for flights and hotels together for under $1000, for 2-3 weeks. And center Strip.

    MSS being closed is devastating! My heart cries for everyone and all the companies who were affected so hard by the pandemic. I think the best thing we can do, is together make sure that Vegas will come back better than ever. With positive attitude and mouth-to-mouth, we can boost Vegas back up to the amazing wonderful place it has always been for so may of us. We are Vegas. We have to bring back the good spirit and fun. Everything will be alright if we all make it right.

    2 things stand out from our May trip. It was my first winning gambling trip in 45 years. And we found a Groupon for Paradise massage, which turned out to be Judy's all time favorite massage. I had spent 500 for a spa day for Judy at Aria and a 35 dollar Groupon beat it. She went back again and it was stil a perfect experience.

    I know!!! I just finished the first one, the trip report of @luck.ofthe.draw and loved it.
    And I have 145 days left to wait for my trip, so time enough to go through the TRs haha.

    Also questions related to Covid restrictions etc, if still relevant then of course (I hope not!).

    And do you already know of our public transport app? You can find door to door travel info through the whole Netherlands, with all kinds of transport (train, tram, metro, bus) combined. Super handy. It also shows how much you have to walk from your hotel to the bus stop or station and vice versa, it just lays out the whole travel plan from A to B. It's called 9292 (reisapp & route planner).

    No! Haven't seen that. Usually walk from train station to the Dam Square hotel. Easy to walk and bike around. Maybe I'll have to buy you dinner to get all the "local secrets'" ... lol.

    I'll have a look at the app.

    Thank you, Breanna! :kiss:

    I think we will be together in Vegas for 1 or 2 days! I mean at the same time!
    Our trips overlap when you arrive end of December and I leave (on the 24th).
    Or at least I think so when I look at your countdown timer.

    Me too! That's exactly where I live, between Central Station and the Dam.
    I think you have the best spot in town, from Dam Square you can walk in any direction and always end up somewhere nice.
    Plus CS is close by, in case you want to visit places outside Amsterdam and for back and forward to the airport.
