Hello Tuesday Travelers!


I am glad that Tuesday Travels theme for this week is still freeform; gives me a chance to share another set of travel photos that I got which aren’t published yet. This time, I am sharing a few snaps of  the daughter’s and my first step in the fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada in October 2009: our pitstop for our flight going home to Philippines. We flew from Central Wisconsin to Las Vegas and stayed there for three days before flying home to Philippines and our itinerary was made that way because Triz and I went home to Philippines that time with my parents-in-law who were staying in Las Vegas, at my sister-in-law’s residency. I didn’t want that the hubby wasn’t with us as he just stayed here for work; nevertheless, our family in Las Vegas made sure that Triz and I will enjoy our first hop in the fabulous city.


Sure enough, we had a blast. Here are our several photos as manifestations:



Photo #1 — Sin City, by night!



Photo #2– Triz and I at the lounge of the Venetian



Photo #3– Triz, at the Venetian fountain



Photo #4 — @ The Palazzo Shoppes


Las Vegas has so much for your wandering eyes. Sure, you need to prepare your feet for some miles of walking around. I had to surrender myself from feeling so tired already but my sister-in-law and our friend Nora were too patient with me and Triz. We didn’t bring a stroller for the little girl so they had to help me carry the 30+ lbs kiddo that we got. Lol.


There were so many things I wanted to see in Las Vegas which I’ve only seen in photos and I’ve only heard from travel experiences of others, but when I got there, it felt so tiring already realizing how huge the city is to be explored. I only requested to see the Bellagio’s Dancing Fountain when I already felt so weak from walking and I thought I’ll just continue touring the place next time, when the hubby can join us. So SIL and Nora took me and Triz to Bellagio’s and that’s where I was so in awe with the engineering and computerized operation of the Dancing Fountain. I got a few shots worth sharing:

Photo #8– The dancing fountain move and the Eiffel Tower shown!


Seeing these photos, I am smiling as I realized that we still had a great time even though the hubby wasn’t able to join the fun with me and Triz. Having a family who resides in Las Vegas gives us an unlimited chance to go back there again and again, if the budget would permit. We spent our Christmas and New Year 2011 there and because the hubby was already present, the travelholic family became complete on my third hop in Las Vegas. I still have a whole lot of photos to share; I hope you’ll still want to see them in the future! :)

How about you? Have you been to Las Vegas? Do you like it there?

    These pictures brought back a lot of memories. Been there once and stayed at Stardust hotel. My relatives and I roamed around the place on foot for 7 hours. Nakakapagod pero maganda talaga tingnan yung mga theme nila in every hotel. I hope to see Vegas again. I love how the place looks at night. Talagang totally different to see during day time… pero di naman advisable to live there..maubos ata pera natin, hehe..

    Beautiful photographs! They are so colorful. I’m sure your kid enjoyed the light and fountain display. I never really thought of going to Las Vegas, even given the chance. I feel like I’ve got nothing to do there, hahaha!
