In a post earlier this year, I passed on my excitement about visiting Portugal in the fall. Sadly, that trip fell through, and since then, I have been itching to get on a plane and head… anywhere!
So, it’s off for a quick week in Vegas for me on Monday. It’s always a fun and relatively inexpensive getaway that I really enjoy. Direct flights from Regina are a real bonus. But, this time around, I won’t be having the usual Vegas experience.
No drinking and gambling and partying all night for this girl. I need a chill vacation, so I am staying at the Encore hotel (gorgeous sister property to the Wynn) and I am treating myself to two (count them two) visits to the incredible Encore spa. I can’t wait.
When I am not hanging out in my suite, or relaxing in the world-class spa, I will be enjoying some great food (at celebrity chef restaurants yet to be determined), shopping till I drop at Las Vegas outlet malls (I plan to get all of my Christmas shopping done) and finally seeing Cirque de Soleil’s marquee show “O.”
Did I mention I am going alone?
I am really looking forward to a solitary Vegas experience where I can wander, or not, to the beat of my own drum. It’s also pretty amazing the seats you can get to shows when you are looking for just one ticket!
