Heading to Las Vegas for work wasn’t exactly how I envisioned my first trip to Sin City. I was picturing more of a girls weekend getaway, you know, hitting up the hottest pool parties, eating at the fanciest restaurants and maybe getting to dance a few feet away from one of my favourite DJs but then again, I wasn’t about to turn down a free trip to Vegas.
Being 20 in Las Vegas meant I wasn’t technically old enough to experience one of the most popular entertainment hubs in the world to its full potential – but hey, I made the most of it.
Landing in Las Vegas on the Wednesday evening is one of my fondest memories of the trip – and I hadn’t even stepped foot on the strip, yet! From my window seat, I saw the strip of lights, iridescent in the blackness of the surrounding dessert. As we hopped into a cab on our way to our hotel, I was literally in awe; you know the scene in those movies with the small town girl hanging her head out the cab window drinking in the new surroundings? That was me.
