Well this was my 3rd time to Sin City.
My first 2 times with my other half and this time as a group for my friends wedding.
Our flight was uneventful, we flew from London Gatwick to Vegas with Virgin without a hitch (until we arrived) Free drink to calm the flight nerves, I am a terrible companion to have beside you on a flight longer than 45 minutes. Before we knew it we could see the strip from the window and we have landed in McCarron. On our way through customs, we thought we were on a roll and would be checking into the Aria in no time. How wrong was I. Made our way to baggage reclaim and pretty soon, myself and my friend were standing watching the same pram go round and round the carosel. My heart sunk when the staff member came over looked at us and said the DREADED words 'We have been informed thats all the baggage off the plane' My OH offered to share his clothes - how he thought that would work Im not sure, but bless he was trying.
I have to admit Virgin was very helpful. Gave us an inciddent number and a freephone telephone and kept us up to date.
So off we went, I decided that this start wouldnt dampen my holiday. Off we went in a taxi and pulled up at the Aria. I loved my stay here. A quick check in and I had to head off to find a shop to get essentials and a change of outfit' After a stop in H&M, I landed back to the Aria.
Our first night was spend settling in and allowing the first timers to get their bearings. Me and the other half decided on dinner. We decided on Mon abi gabi, I seen this place on my last visit and loved the idea of the outdoor patio. Luckily we managed to get a seat outside, ordered a glass of wine for me and a beer for the OH. The view and atmosphere was amazing, seeing the fountains as the sun went down was magical. We both opted for the Steak Frites, mine with brandy peppercorn sauce and my OH choosing teh blue cheese sauce. 10/10 - I would recommend a visit.
Dinner and a couple of drinks, we decided to walk a little of the strip soaking up the late night heat and atmosphere and retired to bed.
Second day coming soon ......
