Before booking my stay in Vegas, I heard countless people say that a few days is enough for Sin City. Because of the overall stories from numerous individuals that less is more in this location, I played it safe and did just a short 3 day stopover on the way back to Sydney.

Vegas. It’s a place to indulge. A place to put just a little bit more money on red, have another yard-length margarita and put yet another bite in your mouth.
We’re going to talk about the last point.
Vegas has more buffet restaurants than you can count. Buffets. Mile-long buffets (it seems). You… Read more
Anytime someone is able to pick up and move out of their small-ish hometown, it’s kind of a big deal. It’s even more of a big deal when that person picks up and moves home to Las Vegas!

You may have noticed if you follow along that Pat and I have been bouncing around the U.S. of A. In fact, even after the day of the year this post was supposed to happen on, we have since hit Vegas and ventured back to Australia. This has been the most epic… Read more
I start most of my days with a nice hot cup of coffee, except for when I decide to switch it up with a cup of tea, and I wouldn’t (or couldn’t) have it any other way. I love coffee; it is a spice of my life, and I can now see American coffee in… Read more
This trip home has been a whirlwind, and I have found myself going out to dinner and meeting up with family on most evenings, and there are family members I hadn’t seen in ages in the mix.
Being gone for so long leaves me with a lot of catching up; poor Pat has… Read more
