Awake and panicking about returning the rental car on time, we spent the late morning driving out to the direction of the airport, not the most relaxing start, but who ever said Vegas was relaxing?

Of course, we had to Read the rest! \(^u^)/ →


Driving to Vegas

January 21, 2014 · 0 comments

Refreshed from real sleep, like normal people get, I was excited to be going to Vegas, via American muscle car. Sin City, here we come… of course Harue wanted to meet another family member first (which was great) and also go shopping (not so much).

Half a wasted day later, mostly in a generic shopping mall found in every developed country in the world, and I knew I had to cross the Hoover Dam off my list.

The most ‘colourful’ nightlife is found on South Beach Miami. The hostels in Miami have picked up on the party atmosphere and many have on-site bars, roof terraces and games rooms, making it easy to meet fellow travellers. You can also ensure you have more money for drinks and club entries by getting them free with some hostels and waking up to a delicious free breakfast the next day at others. Here are two great examples:
