We Got on the train this morning. I do love walking to public transport towards a vacation. David made all of the plans and I didn't have to think about anything (hooraayy). We landed in Vegas and were met by a woman with our names on a card (I have never done that before).

We checked in at the Venetian and unpacked then went for coffee. We then walked from the strip all the way to the old part of downtown Las Vegas. We figure it was about 4.5 miles

Along the way we wandered through the Wynn.

Down Las Vegas Boulevard past old Las Vegas
(or as I like to call it-The seedy side of the strip). We went past several wedding chapels and walked upon the Pawn shop from a cable TV show
(it was packed so we took a picture of the sign and kept trudging along towards Freemont Street. We had dinner at an Irish pub and after a peppermint Schnapps and hot cocoa for me and a bloody mary for david we kind of forgot we were supposed to wait for the ceiling lights to come on. We caught the bus instead and came back to the hotel. After a bit of chocolate from Godiva and a romantic gondola ride we popped up to our hotel room for a rest and picture download.

I think I am ready for some Gelato now :) More tomorrow.

Hope you have an even better time today! I have to go to Vegas. I see everyone post how wonderful it is and need to experience the decadence just once. Have a drink for me.
