What’s next? Vegas – Southern California – South America – the World!

We’re heading out to Vegas next week to see a Cirque du Soleil’s show – Ka – and spend a couple of days in the city hanging out with our relatives.

Cirque du Soleil, ka

Excited much? Very.

So, stay tuned for our misadventure stories coming out from Las Vegas 🙂

And don’t worry, we won’t try to double our trip budget on a poker table or something stupid like that. We got a MUCH better chance of winning at Blackjack 😉

  1. Wow, you guys are such busy bloggers! well done. I also can't wait to read about your up coming adventures. Now I'm home, I'm trying to soothe my travel bug with travel blogs! 🙂

  2. My roommate was just in Vegas a couple of weeks ago, so I'll be really interested to see how your experience compares to hers! I'm hopefully heading there myself this summer!

  3. Very excited to be following along for all of the misadventures!! Also, can't wait to read the articles on southern California. I've been telling people If I come back to the states, I will land in Southern Cal. 🙂

    1. Ha, we're a little partial to Northern Cal ourselves, but have a lot of relatives down south. Either way, this state is a great landing spot if you do decide to come back — but I might just be bias 🙂

  4. KA is our favorite of all the vegas Cirque Shows (and we have seen almost all of them). It is really mind blowing.

    Are you staying with Rellies or are you staying on the strip?

    Here are our two favorite things in Vegas:

    – Wynn / Encore (with an exclamation point behind Encore).
    – Capprioti's (for the Bobby)

    Have a great time.

  5. I like Las Vegas, but I wouldn't want to spend more that a few days there at a time. And I avoid the sleazy side of Vegas as much as possible. I enjoy a bit of gambling (mostly the quarter and dollar slot machines, seeing good shows (Cirque du Soleil, Blue Man Group…) and splurging on a meal in one of great restaurants there. I haven't seen "Ka" — saw "O" and it was spectacular!

  6. Growing up I lived in Southern California and as a young adult we would drive to Vegas for the weekend very regularly. Back in the day when the Desert Inn was one of "the" places to go, Vegas was awesome. You could stay fairly cheap, eat cheap, drink cheap (at the tables), gamble cheap. . . In essence, it wasn't a real expensive place to go.

    Now, I am not so sure I really appreciate the largess that Vegas has become.

    1. Interesting… I have never experienced what Vegas was like back in the day. Last time I was there was 5 years ago, curious to see if it has changed much.
