a great recap of the olympic events was shown prior to the closing ceremonies. i'm pretty sure all the major wins and upsets were highlighted in about a 90 minute period.
just my opinion anyways.
Las Vegas, Nevada
las vegas for me is the easiest vacation. for the most part it's pretty cheap to get there, most things are within walking distance, and it's always entertaining. of course depending on when you go it could be pretty miserable because of the heat, but thankfully the indoors are always nice and cool with the casino's wanting you to spend your money.
the first time i traveled to las vegas i was in middle school i believe. i went there to attend my aunt kathleen's wedding. it definitely wasn't your typical vegas wedding, in fact it was very nice. my mom and i stayed at the excalibur. my second trip was a year later, and my mom and i went to a bunch of shows! the shows there are amazing. my all time favorite is the blue man group, which i've seen 3 times.
my years in college i went to vegas every fall break. it sort of became a tradition for my mom and i to go for her birthday which always falls around fall break. one year we went to go see the backstreet boys, another year we went to see celine dion.
i've been getting the itch to go back to vegas lately. it's been 3 years since i've been there, and it was a much needed break. i was in vegas in may 2007 for tina's 30th birthday, then again in july 2007 on a girls trip. being to las vegas twice in a 3 month period is a lot. after that trip i was over las vegas. but like i said, that was 3 years ago, and i think it would be fun to go back again, sometime soon.
it's fun to stay at different hotels, try different food, walk around, and of course play a little blackjack and roulette!
