    My Trip Report

    So myself and my wife are off to Vegas for maybe the 15th time and I have finally decided to try a live trip report.

    We are flying premium economy with Virgin Atlantic.
    We have 3 nights in a tower premier suite at Luxor, then 4 nights at Cosmo with fountain view and finally 2 nights at Vdara. Luxor and Cosmo are our usual spots but this will be our first time at Vdara.
    All rooms are comped and come with various freeplay and resort credit so we are winning already ;).

    Anyway its 430 am in the UK right now and we need to pack for a 1030 flight so I better get on with it... Happy happy:wiggle:

    So our games of choice are craps and slots mainly with a sprinkling of roulette thrown in now and again.
    Roulette used to be my main game but I carry too many scars from those battles to play it heavily now.

    An airport liquid breakfast is a perfectly acceptable way to start a journey.

    Yup ... just boarded the plane ... nice welcome drink in premium economy too!
    Food, drink, earphones and book (unlikely!):confused:
    What else does one need?

    Arrived at the luxor... rooms not ready.... grrr.... first time that's happened for a while.
    Really need to freshen up after that long flight too. Going to dump luggage and have a little slot I think.

    Paid 77.20. A bit disappointed after getting 20 spins, but a winning start!
