So I am finally starting on the Las Vegas blog posts! HOORAY! Now I should probably say this flat-out that I did not go, my sister and her fiancée went there with a group of his friends as a birthday celebration (of course!) and I get the joy of talking about almost everything of their trip!
Last year, they went to Hawaii for a week and my sister had so many pictures and information about it, that those posts required a few days in between them. This time, despite being there for the same amount of time, the quantity of photos are a little less. Blondie and Brandon and his friend Allen left for their very long drive to Las Vegas the day after my papaw’s birthday! And since we went looking through different stuff of my papaw’s, my sister found this gold key chain of a train and she ended up taking it along as if papaw was really with them!
One of the differences from their time in Hawaii is that instead of flying there, they decided to drive… Guess whose idea this was? My sister! According to my mom’s friend she said that if you take the Red-Eye from Indianapolis to Las Vegas, it costs about $39! After getting through Kansas, everybody realized how BAD of an idea it was to drive! However, they did get some pretty interesting photos of the different places in the five states they went through. From seeing snow on top of mountains in Colorado to nothing but dry heat and desert in Utah and Nevada!
It took them about two or three and a half days to get to their destination! They stopped through Denver, Colorado for a night and went back on the road again but stopped while in Green River, Utah and took some amazing pictures. In some of them below, you almost get the feel they just pulled over and got out to stretch their legs a bit! Whatever the reason, the views were pretty cool! After all that driving they finally made it to their hotel. Blondie said on a photo that Brandon treats her like a princess that they were staying in a castle, and by the pictures she wasn’t kidding! They stayed at the Excalibur!
I think that’s all I’m going to talk about for today! Next week, I’ll go into more details of what they did even though they were broke before they’re first day there! Hope you guys enjoyed this post!
Have you went to Las Vegas? What is better flying there or driving and seeing all these different environments?
