16 February 2019

Spent the morning (two lovebirds),re acquainting ourselves with the area after a 3 year absence, some new malls, otherwise still unchanged 🏢 and beautiful. We sat for a while and got the cultural 🌺Hawaiian experience, very enlightening 🏝🌸🌴🌿and managed to finally get to have a swim. Visited the famous Bills cafe for a cocktail named “Melbourne mai tai “, and a hot chocolate (guess who had the hot chocolate?) Visited the flea market across from the hotel & did NOT get ripped off! Yes!!!👘 Tiana STILL shopping, may be on borrowed money by now👢👡👛👜🧳🥿👖👙
Waikiki by night🔥🏝 Magical place, always buzzing. Waking up to a new day our stay here is almost coming to an end, it has gone so quick. Today is our rest day, sleep 💤 in, breakfast and lay around the pool, weather permitting ☀️ Last night the fireworks were canceled due to the ☔️, so we casually walked around and discovered some new places in the back streets 🥨🍔🌭

DINNER🍴 my favourite restaurant - Olive Garden. ⭐️ Fried Mozzarella ⭐️ Spiked Pink Lemonade ⭐️ Beers ⭐️ Cheese Ravioli w/Meet Sauce ⭐️ Chicken Giardino ⭐️ Stuffed Chicken Marsala
Had a nice day out in the casinos and shopping, saw the snow on the mountains
Started out with breakfast in our hotel with a view of the pools and garden 🌳 Then to the South outlets for more shopping! 👜 In-N-Out Burger for lunch 🍔 and then a walk through Caesars Palace (and getting lost in Harrahs and some other casinos) 🗺

10 February 2019

Had some really nice Italian freshly made cannoli after going to the Brad Garrett’s Comedy Show at MGM Grand
Love Vegas, gambling capital of the world. How good is it , free drinks while playing pokies, my drink cost $200
Went to the New York New York, the Luxor, Mandalay Bay and Excalibur 🎰 Took the tram (it’s a monorail) from one to the other and saw some more of the strip. We also found that the Mandalay Bay has both sparkling and still water on tap in their lobby 🙈💰 Had some good pizza, a few slaps (Tiana won $$$, Bruno didn’t) and then went to Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club for a show🎤

9 February 2019

Spent the day walking through different casinos, and went especially to The Flamingo after learning so much about it at the museum yesterday. There’s also real flamingos inside the hotel 😯 Did some more shopping and had an alcoholic slurpee before heading back for dinner and a walk through the strip.

8 February 2019

Who would have thought “ coach” does NOT have a horse attached to it. Now I know for next time to say no!
We paid a visit to The Mob Museum🤵🏽 which was very interesting; explained how Vegas came to be and how the mob started and was brought down🔍. We also walked through Downtown Vegas, saw Graceland Wedding Chapel (still no vowel renewal in it 😜) and the highlight of the day PAWN STARS ✔️

7 February 2019

Chinese display in Bellagio
We finished off the day with a nice dinner and dessert at Mercato Della Pescheria in The Venetian🍝 & watching the water show at The Bellagio. Good opportunity to whip out the camera 📸
A relaxing walk through the strip today. Visited the M&M store🍫 (the whole 4 levels) and got some goodies, and then went next door to the Coca Cola store and did a tasting of their “International Flavours”🥤
A new day begins, after a nice breakfast, we hit the shops, moving on from designer bags we are.............. Yep you guessed it SHOE SHOPPING!!👠
We’re in Las Vegas! 🇺🇸 checked into the amazing Bellagio to go up to our room and find curtains that open and close with the push of a button, so cool 🤩
I’m convinced that when it comes to the layout of designer shops at airports no man is involved in the thought process.... Why else would a 10 minute walk to the departure gate take 1 hour

6 February 2019

We arrived in Hawaii for our stop over, had fast track through customs and guess who got pulled aside for drug testing... AGAIN 🤦🏽‍♀️ And she even asked if I’d had it done before!
Hard to smile when travelling with 2 woman who stop at every duty free store😎
An eventful start to our journey; actually getting a photo where dad is smiling, mum being bomb and drug tested by security (dad and I weren’t surprised, it happens every time 😂), a 25 minute delay at the gate (so far) . Still positive vibes cause we’re going to VEGAS BABY 💸
