Las Vegas – summary

Filed under: travel — Tags: , — mat @ 3:48 am

What a city. So much glamour. And so many broken dreams on both sides of the road. Blinking light all over. More than 3900 rooms at the Bellagio and this one is not the largest….

signature breakfast- Egg Benedict

It was great to see and good to be out after 48 hrs. Vegas baby!

Vegas baby!

Filed under: travel — Tags: , — mat @ 6:54 pm

Almost 4 hrs by car to get to Sin City. As a side note, we found everything so far immediately without running in circles. Nice. Now the shock. This city is so different from what we saw so far. Nothing compares with it. Everything is bigger, louder, more colorful, more anything. We picked the Bellagio as a impresario booking. Means you get more benefits than via direct or OTA booking. Here is what we got : 60$ breakfast credit for every morning plus 100$ credit for drinks plus free wi-fi (lower resort fee in our case) and early check in / late check out. Since we found an unclean shower and complained it we got 100$ more on our credit. Sounds good, does it? Breakfast for the two of us: 80$, 2 Miller beer 20$, 2 drinks 45$. Okee Vegas got you! Everything is more expensive here as well. Nevertheless it’s worth to see it. And yes we gambled of course! Mandy did so and I am … mojo baby 🥰 Well at the end we did not loose money.
