So this is the reason why I haven't posted for a while, honeymoon! Our first stop was Las Vegas, somewhere we've visited before and I’ve always wanted to go back.
After a very long journey we were rewarded with an amazing room, our suite had both a huge bath and shower, 3 TVs, a lounge and 2 rooms, all with a view of the strip! I've never stayed somewhere so good in all my life (and probably never will again!)
When we arrived it was quite late so we just grabbed something from the food court before going to watch the Bellagio fountains.
The next morning after a delicious breakfast at Caesars palace (where we caught Michelle Heaton in the queue in front of us haha) we went to the pool for a few hours, and got severely burnt! Margarita's helped me out though haha.
We visited a wine and cheese 'hideaway' for lunch and then to look around the Bellagio conservatory, it’s so pretty! We had tapas for dinner, our favourite kind of food!
We had a Rivera type breakfast overlooking the pool the next morning and then spent the morning at an aquarium and after to a bar for alcoholic slushie.
Our lunch that day was a build your own burger bar- I went sooo overboard, especially as they had a build your own milkshake option! We went to the bodies’ exhibition after where we got to handle a real brain! Of course after that the natural option was to visit a tequila bar haha. That night I got to do something I’ve always wanted too, order room service! It was soo fancy!
Our reason for our room service night was we had a super early 5am start due to a Grand Canyon day trip. We got to see some amazing views of the canyon; it was a tiring day but so worth it. That night we got home, went out for an Italian and then straight to bed!
The next morning we went for a buffet and I’m never very good at them, I go so over the top and then have to give up haha. It didn't help that I was a bit nervous because after we went to the gun range! Actually turns out the nerves were pointless because I'm AMAZING at shooting! I have the worst hand-eye co-ordination so was naturally expecting to be bad but actually, I got aim!
Lunch after was a place famous for their sundaes, we shared a deep fried Oreo sundae (yeah it was sickly) but decided to have our own frozen hot chocolates, we didn't realise how big they would be!
Our day continued with cocktails and as we were so stuffed from lunch we skipped the dinner and went for more cocktails! That night we went to Zumanity, the kinky cirque de soleil show, it was so funny!
Breakfast the next morning was sitting out overlooking the strip eating gruyere and ham crepes. We had a wonder around that morning going to the pearl factory where I opened an oyster and got a pearl out and we went to the oxygen bar where we also got a massage while hooked up.
After we had our vow renewal! Typical Vegas style baby!!!
Our celebratory lunch was at a place called the sugar factory; they had amazing cocktails based on sweets. After we went to the CSI experience where you get to solve a crime, that’s when I was in my element! We actually went for another cocktail night instead of dinner and finished the night going to a comedy club.
The next day we actually went for a 'healthy' breakfast, we went to a restaurant in a spa and I had peanut butter and banana sandwich haha. We went for a gondola ride at the Venetian, our hotel, and then did some gambling. The boy lost all our money but don't worry I won it back!
We had a buffet lunch (with unlimited champagne!) and then went to the dolphin habitat and the tiger sanctuary.
That night we had the boy's fave dinner, we went to a fancy steakhouse and he had waygu beef steak, I'm not a steak fan but I tried some and wow it was gorgeous. We then went to see Penn and Teller, the magicians, who were brilliant and we got photos after!
Our last day in Vegas was made the most of, we went to a typical American diner for breakfast and then went up to the Stratosphere hotel, and they have rides that go off the side of the 1200 foot hotel. The boy left me to go on my own! We had a delicious tapas meal for dinner and went to a cocktail lounge before catching our stretch limo to the airport!
I'll post something soon about the New York leg of our trip!
