Vegas, Baby !

     I love Las Vegas.  I love the fact that it is only a two and a half hour flight from Vancouver, and it is an affordable  getaway when you need one, and may be short on time or cash.  Mostly, I love that it is really hot and sunny, and it is a dry heat – the best kind.  Oh yeah, and there are palm trees there.  Hot sun and palm trees are two of my very favourite things in life.

     A lot of people seem to think that you have to be a big gambler or partier to go there, but not so.  Sure, if you’re into it, you can stay out late, spend a lot of money, and do crazy stuff  … but there are so many other things to do there. 

     To me, a vacation is generally about trying to forget the daily stress of life, the crazy fast-paced world we live in, the sleep-deprivation etc.  It is a time to relax, worry about nothing, and lay by the pool, feeling the hot sun recharging you …  nothing makes me happier.

     I thoroughly enjoy trying the various restaurants in the city, going to see fabulously entertaining shows, and doing a little shopping, but I mainly go to relax, and lose the goosebumps that I constantly have from living somewhere that never really gets more than warm.  ( I know, I’d be much happier living in desert-like conditions – everyone who knows me has been telling me that for years. )

     I can’t wait for the next time I can go to Vegas.  Just thinking about it helps me get through the tough times of everyday life, and gives me something to look forward to.  I’ve been looking on recently, and the prices are really good there right now …
