Oh my, where do I even begin? I had a feeling I’d like Las Vegas, after all I love anywhere with the wow factor, and having seen countless images of the city I could see it was a pretty special place. But nothing in the photographs or films I’d seen ever summed up the sheer epic-ness of it. One minute you’re walking down a life-sized mock up of a New York City street and the next you’re stood next to a larger than life stiletto made of crystals, I said ‘wow’ a lot! It’s a place of self-indulgence, a Disneyland for adults and there is literally something for everyone. Zombie burlesque anyone?!

To top off the excitement I spent my 40th birthday in Vegas. Yeeeeeah baby! Something I will never ever forget.

The Vegas heat was like nothing I’d ever experienced and I’ve no idea how I even managed to take any photos without my camera slipping out of my hands, or melting! I don’t even recall the Sahara Desert being as hot and I sometimes found breathing a challenge. All I can say is thank goodness for air conditioning!

In terms of recommendations, everything I did was amazing and I’m pretty sure I only saw about 5% of the city. You really can’t go wrong in Vegas, you just drift and adventure awaits you.

More Las Vegas to follow soon..
