The Adventure Begins

The Adventure Begins

The Adventure Begins!

I have embarked! Today (8/19/14), I arrived in Las Vegas where I met my friend Hunter Seglem. From here,  I will continue on to Los Angeles (8-20-14), and then fly to Tokyo (Arrival on 8/21/14).
However, I have had a chance to enjoy my small amount of time in Vegas. This is the first time I’ve been here, so it was quite interesting to see all of the sights Vegas has to offer. When I first arrived, we took a drive down Las Vegas Boulevard (The Strip), and continued to our hotel, the Monte Carlo.
This is the Excaliber, it resembles a castle

After unloading at the hotel, Hunter and I took a walk on the strip to see the different shops.
Seen here is the Hard Rock Cafe, full of music memorabilia 
After that, we went out to eat at the “Brand” steakhouse located within the Monte Carlo. It was very delicious (#5 rated in all of Vegas). Unfortunately, I did not get a picture of it 🙁
Next, we headed to the Bellagio to see the fountain works, and I managed to capture a few pictures of the nearby scenery!

Right after that, We headed over to the Luxor casino/hotel. IT WAS SUPER AMAZING! Here are some photos I snagged:

I loved that hotel. However, the best part of the night, was the last part of the night.
Criss Angel is a very famous magician that can be seen on his TV show. His live show (Believe) was INCREDIBLE! After basically teleporting into the crowd, Hunter and I had the glory of high fiving him! Unfortunately, no pictures were allowed, but I managed to snag a cool one outside of the theater:

And that, ladies and gentlemen, concludes my trip so far. I will be heading to LA for my flight tomorrow (8-21-14). Wish me luck!
Sorry if this post seems very cut and dry with no emotion, my computer is nearly dead, so I don’t have a ton of time to type at the moment!
