OUR TRAVEL STORIES
WOW what a place even if just a little crazy. We visited Vegas for a very special trip to see Robbie Williams preform at the Wynn Hotel, we have followed Robbie all over Europe so when he announced he was playing Vegas we just had to go.
My wife had also always said she wanted to see Barry Manilow in Vegas and I was like really, however we went to the hotel on the morning of the night he was playing at the famous Westgate Resort and Casino hotel and got some great seats, the audience started arriving and as I sat in my seat wondering what I had done, (I thought I was at a bingo hall in Doncaster) no offence Doncaster but picture the scene!! the age groups arriving were from 12 to 99! but then something happened I was not expecting. OMG what a performer, he has to be up there with one of the best artists I have ever seen, he had the audience in his hands and the voice was just perfection. A truly magical show.
The city is full of lights and madness but is 5 star luxury all the way, the hotels are incredible and do cover all budgets but as Robbie was playing one of the best hotels in town I booked in to stay there as well!!
Every hotel is set up with gambling in mind and is a very dangerous place even if you have never gambled before if you are not careful. I love playing roulette and at the start of the trip was not doing very well in-fact I truly believed Vegas was one big fix and the stories I had read about dodgy tables were true, however my wife who does not gamble at all was soon hooked on playing the fruit machines that line every inch of the hotels carpets, she soon become hooked and was winning for fun, her best win was over $200 on one spin, I was not impressed with her luck!
On the last evening and the night of the Robbie concert I was dressed in my DJ at hit the tables as with a big smile my wife gave me some of her dollars to play with! I cant lie the adrenaline was flowing as I finally learnt how to play roulette with a little help with my non gambling wife who had been watching others playing and told me what they were doing, I started winning big, the numbers were coming in and the combination of playing the board in different sections was working, however as much as the chips were piling up my bottled started to go and as it was by now getting a bit late I called it a night.. I was on such a roll and I think if I had carried on I would of paid for the holiday in that visit to that table. A magical feeling seeing those chips roll in dressed like James Bond...
The food is typical American but big and delicious, we were lucky to get a table at the famous Hells Kitchen and the food was unreal, there is so much to see when walking the streets, at night, it becomes a theater of activity and you will see sights you did not even know existed but it is really a fun place to be.
I would love to return again one day although perhaps when I am a bit richer, be prepared for utter madness if you do visit but you only live once so do it without hesitation!
