Hey guys – double post for you here as I was too busy yesterday to write one!
So day 7 was spent almost exclusively at Universal Studios – Hollywood.
Even though it was drizzling all day we still had a great time. Some of the experiences there are really cool especially Waterworld and the Terminator 3D show. The simpsons rise is awesome and should be checked out as well!
After the park closed we ate at the hard rock cafe at the universal lot. That was quite cool too!
We were both quite tired after that and knowing I had a 4 or 5 hour drive the next day we got an early night.
Day 8 started with an early breakfast and a trip to the bank to change some travellers cheques.
Then we hit the road and started our epic journey to Vegas!
The drive was very easy actually. We stopped a couple of times for food and nature breaks!
We arrived at Vegas just before 3pm. Driving down the strip was amazing. It was jam packed full of people. We checked in and unpacked our stuff then went for a walk down the strip. My sister and her boyfriend have paid for us to go to Medieval Times while we’re out here, but didn’t realise that there wasn’t one here in Vegas, there is however the Tournament of Kings at the Excalibur hotel which is the same thing more or less. In fact I imagine it’d be bigger and better!
Annoyingly the show wasn’t on last night so we booked our tickets for today’s showing and headed back out to the strip. We went in some shops and looked around the M&M’s store! That thing has 4 floors!! Crazy!
Later we went to an Irish bar called MacMillans just off the strip. A guy I know works there. We had a fun time there as there was a pub quiz that we came last in!!
Today we’ve got the Tournament of Kings and a flight around the grand canyon to look forward to!!
