My almost three-week long vacation in the United States has come to an end. During my time here with my friend James I got to experience some truly wonderful and unforgettable memories and scenery. In case you missed it, I spent my of my time in Las Vegas but also drove down for a quick exploration of the famous and popular Los Angeles.
Three weeks and over 180 pictures later, it’s quite obvious that I will not be able to fit it all into this blog. I will instead choose some highlights and upload a few pictures, as only my closest friends and family will be able to see all of the pictures in person. Here are some of the things we did:
Chateau Night Club
We went to different clubs, but one that was more memorable than the other was, Chateau. Why is that you ask? Well, simply because we got to party with two public figures and they were none other than Bam Margera and Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson and that was godlike. All night and champagne bottles at $650 each and you begin to see the high class of this party. Two days later Ryan Dunn passed away though and I would like to include him here to honor his memory. Rest in peace, Ryan.
Universal Studios Hollywood
Universal Studios was definitely one of the highlights of this trip. The coolest amusement park that I have been to and can remember. Sorry, Disney World, I can’t really remember you, and that says a lot. We spent more than seven hours there and we still didn’t do everything. And you know what that means, we’ll be back. We did the world-famous Universal Studio Tour and we saw Shrek 4D which was my first 4D experience. We saw all kinds of shows such as Water World, Animal Workers, and Special Effects Studio. We went to the House of Horror’s and we also allowed the Mummy to get his revenge on mankind in the most fun roller coaster that I have ever been in. We had perfect weather all day long and it was an unforgettable experience to say the least. World-class entertainment for a very reasonable price. You have not lived until you’ve been to Universal Studios Hollywood.
Cirque Du Soleil
They call it a gravity-defying experience and it is exactly that. Some of the most amazing acrobatics that I have ever seen and the most amazing theater performances delivered. Unrivaled stage detail and atmosphere as well made this show worth every penny of it’s $100+ price tag. Sound effects were also wicked and so was the soundtrack. Oh, what Cirque Du Soleil show was it? It was KA and I will be back for more Cirque Du Soleil whether it be KA or something different. They have proved that it was worth every penny and I will never forget the performance that I saw. Masterful. Unfortunately it was strictly forbidden to film or take pictures during the show, so I can’t really show y’all anything from it.
You might have seen my date one report, but in case you didn’t, we went go-karting and it was a blast! For kids you say? Well, these babies go up to 45 mp/h and that’s quite fast when you’re in a little kart like that. It was a lot of fun and I definitely want to do that all over again. Many times. Racing is fun and even though I came 2nd, I am happy. Next time I’ll be aiming for that sweet number one spot. Speed racer!
MGM Grand Hotel & Casino
The MGM Grand is a beautiful and enormous hotel and casino with nice gambling options and as well as clubbing, dining, bathing, and entertainment. It is the perfect casino that has everything you could possibly want inside of it and it is located right at the start of the Las Vegas Strip so you have everything within a walking distance. Next year when I come back there will be more MGM Grand for sure. Both for more gambling and shows, and dining. And their pool is simply fantastic. But next time I will also check out the Palms Hotel to see who truly is the king of Vegas. Or maybe Caesar’s?
Obviously there were a lot of things to buy here and I did buy everything I wanted so I am very happy about that. I got myself a lot of new clothing, souvenirs, electronic gadgets, postcards and you know just nice food and experiences. If you plan on visiting Vegas, be sure to bring a lot of money. It’s very easy to spend $1000 per day here as there is simply so many different things to do that are out-of-the world.
And that’s not even half of it, but I don’t want to drag it out as there simply is too much. I have never seen a city like this before. More entertainment and things to do than any other city. I can easily say that Las Vegas has become my favorite city in the world. No doubt that this was the best vacation I have ever had. Will I come back to Vegas? You bet. Hopefully already next year. There’s still more to do and next time I might stay even longer. Me and James are already working on the sequel, but next time there’ll be more of us! Fabulous Vegas, baby!
Thank you, Vegas!
