It was hard to wake up early in a cold and freezing morning, snuggling against the warmth of our bed. However, today is the start of our exciting tour in Las Vegas, so we have to eat breakfast, take a shower, and get dressed for the long day ahead. My niece Miko and husband Derick who sponsored our trip will bring us to famous hotels and casinos and we will revel in a unique dining experience. We are thrilled to explore and see the charm and elegance of the famous Las Vegas.
Exciting. Shimmering. Fabulous. This is what Las Vegas to me. Apart from our two-week vacation in California, we will visit my niece and her family in Nevada, particularly in Las Vegas. We can’t contain our excitement as we traveled from one state to the other to see the charm and elegance of what is known as “The Entertainment Capital of the World”.
Visiting the United States is one of my biggest dreams since my high school days. Back then, I had a notebook with a list of attractions in each State. I collected picture clippings as well which include the Yosemite National Park, Lake Tahoe, the Grand Canyon, and Death Valley. I also had the Golden Gate for the man-made category. Never in my life that one day, me and my loved ones would set foot in one of these famous landmarks. A pipe dream that turned into reality!
I was so thankful that we were granted a multiple US Visa by November of this year. However, we have no plan yet to visit my sister who is based in California and my niece in Nevada because airfare is pretty expensive for one family. I content myself imagining ourselves traveling to a sprawling country teeming with many amazing tourist attractions and staggering natural beauty. America is indeed, a dream destination. Little did we know that by the end of December this year, we would be getting in the United States on an abrupt visit!
