20141030_185905-EFFECTSI wasn’t all that excited to go to Las Vegas in the first place.  Casinos were never my thing and neither is getting sloppy drunk and making bad decisions, at least not all by myself!  Haha.  I had no trouble traveling alone in all of my other destinations.  Vegas, however, is a different story.  At times, I imagined my siblings or cousins with me being our boisterous selves as we danced and partied.  Sometimes I imagined my best girl friends with me having a fun weekend.  Then, as I yearned to go on a gondola ride at the Venetian Hotel, I imagined what it would be like to have been there with a significant other.  It all made me feel sad and alone.
With that said, I enjoyed some great food and lots of alcoholic beverages, and dressing up as a cat for Halloween.  I saw a zombie burlesque show that was entertaining enough.  Mostly, I spent way too much money on food and alcohol to make up for my lack of companionship.
It’s safe to say on my flight to New Orleans, I had regrets from my time in Sin City.  Unfortunately, when nothing happens in Vegas, but overspending and wishing you weren’t alone, that does NOT stay in Vegas.  Alcohol does not make you feel better and neither does food…two things I already knew, but was reminded of.
I do think I would like Vegas if I went back with someone, but I much rather go somewhere else to be honest.  I wish this post was more entertaining, but it’s just not.  Hey, my travels couldn’t be all exciting, right?  Up next..my month in New Orleans…
I did get a lot of compliments on my cat costume though and met a cute guy at a bar before I had to leave to watch the zombie burlesque show.  That’s something at least…
