The Strip at Daytime in Las Vegas

There's always plenty to do in Las Vegas, day or night!

Cruising down The Strip is required for any first-timer, either by car or by foot.

There were a lot of different interesting things one can see. 

You can go for a leisurely walk and wander without hurry.

Don't forget to bring your camera and do a lot of snapping.

The Venetian Las Vegas

The Venetian made me feel as though I've been transported to Venice, Italy. It was so beautiful.  

Definitely, it was so appealing to walk around and take in all the sites. Several detailed replicas from Europe's most beautiful city were present there.  Take pleasure in seeing the Piazza San Marco with the  Bell Tower. I also found the columns for the Lion of Venice and Saint Theodore.  Also visible in the hotel were the  Palazzo Ducale ,  Ponte di Rialto and Ponte dei Sospiri .

My favorite feature was the grand canal. The gondolas and waterway running through the shops gave an artistic of view of Venice.  

I’m quite sure that my sistah would love the specialty shops around "The Venetian".  The living statues also caught my attention. 

This place was totally  massive. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes on. There were multiple food courts with practical options for families on a budget or for people looking for a quick bite.

Little Church of the West

I'm single because it's a choice. I just have this idea of not needing  someone to validate and tell me how amazing I could be.

I’m single for the reason that I have everything I need to be happy and whole with myself.

I’m single and have full  control over my own life and money.  I don't have to explain what I buy or how I spend my time.

Nevertheless, I don’t intend to be single for the rest of my life.

Truthfully, I am just too lazy. I am aware that being in a relationship takes effort. I met and dated some girls however, I seldom call, text, or any of that. It required more time than I wanted to put forth and then I just stop responding.

I am not getting any younger but I know that there’s a girl destined to be my partner for life. Meanwhile, I am working on myself more at the same time actively looking for a girl of my dreams.  That’s why I keep travelling and keep looking.

I am quite confident that soon I will a find a woman who will capture my thoughts and will bring magic into my life, and will make me think and say being with her would be better than being single.

When that time happens, I will choose to marry her in Las Vegas at Little Church of the West

Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas

I had a hearty breakfast prepared and cooked by my good friend Nerrie  right there  in her nice big house in Vegas. My tummy was filled with delight. Soon after, Nerrie drove me down to see the  "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign. We stopped at the parking lot in front.

The sign was located along Las Vegas Boulevard in the middle of a traffic median. I expected to wait in line since I knew that it’s a busy stop for tourists but, given that it was still early morning, the queue to take picture was not that long.

It was nice to see the sign up close and personal. There was a girl there who offered to take pictures of Nerrie and me together …  for a tip of course.

A picture with the sign at the background is a must do at Vegas for tourists. This is one of the attractions that you shouldn't miss when going to Las Vegas.

A photo with the fabulous "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign at my background was actually included in my bucket list. 

That’s why once I had it, I uploaded the photos and shared my experience on social media.

Del Taco: Go Bold or Go Home

Del Taco is a Mexican fast food restaurant which offers tacos, burritos and quesadillas. They also have American specialties which were burgers and fries.

We dropped by at Del Taco to end our Vegas night escapade. 

I ordered for macho burrito. It was loaded with seasoned beef and beans. The red and green sauces made it even tastier. I loved that the lettuce, tomatoes and diced onions were fresh. Plus the grated cheese and  sour cream are so lip-smacking.

I also ordered for Crinkle-Cut Fries. So delicious.  Golden and crispy curves , it was really  the perfect side to my burrito.

I finished the burrito and fried and wash them down with a fountain drink.

Del Taco was a perfect place after am exhausting night at the Vegas strip.

The food was  super fresh and 
fantastically hot.

Bellagio Fountains

Bellagio Hotel is famous for its glorious fountain. It was so magnificent and considered a must see attraction in Las Vegas. The fountain was really glorious to watch.

The fountain show goes every 15 minutes.  It’s cool to watch it either night or day. After couple of minutes, and after being mesmerized by the water fountain, we walked inside the hotel.

Google photo
I was stunned when my Vegas friends showed me another fountain. It was  "the largest chocolate fountain in the world". The chocolate exhibit was a dazzling and extravagant  series of melted chocolate. It was a glass-enclosed, floor-to-ceiling chocolate fountain. 

Google states: “The chocolate fountain was designed by award-winning Executive Pastry Chef Jean-Philippe Maury and Norwood and Antonia Oliver Design Associates, Inc., the fountain took a year and a half in planning and design. The result is a genius work of kinetic sculpture and a daring feat of engineering. Standing 27-feet tall, the masterpiece circulates more than 2,100 pounds of melted dark, milk and white chocolate at a rate of 120 quarts per minute.”

I took photos and my friends volunteered to model for me like 2 kids craving for chocolates.

 "Life is short!  Have dessert first!"

EXTRA Lounge Clubbin

After some gambling time at the Caesar’s Palace casino, we headed to Planet Hollywood for some music entertainment.

I was thrilled to see that Planet Hollywood was already pumping up and moving. I was amazed to see some line of employees dancing around casino.   

We specifically went to Extra Lounge bar. It covered all elements of a hot Vegas party. This was not just an ideal spot to watch live bands play , it was also a perfect place to blend with the international crowd .

The live band was awesome. 

We went to Extra Lounge, sat and had a few cocktail drinks and just took pleasure from listening to live music.  They played some fast music which made me do a little dancing. 

They had a Hollywood star feel. We sat at the circular bar, with the lounge-style booths.

  It was the best spot to do people-watching.
