A Little More Las Vegas

A Little More Las Vegas

Pictures from my room at the Aria I had a really enjoyable trip to Las Vegas, staying at the Aria, golfing at the Badlands, and buying unique travel products at the Travel Goods Show. On this Sunday’s radio show I will interview someone from the Aria and talk...

The Badlands made for Good Golf

This past week around the Travel Goods Association trade show, I managed to get in two games of golf. I golfed twice at the 27 hole Badlands courses, designed by Chi Chi Rodriguez and Johnny Miller. Situated just outside of Las Vegas for half the holes the best advice...

Las Vegas Impressions

I got back very early this morning on the Westjet overnight flight. Westjet does a really good job of taking care of its customers. Their staff banter is fun and they do an excellent on board service. The Aria was a great place to stay for the first three nights. This...

Reporting Live from las Vegas

No, I have not yet left for the Travel Goods Show, but this is one blogger for whom distance is not a barrier but an opportunity. Regular followers will know I have been trying to bring the world of travel into the blog on a daily basis. When I travel two pieces of...
Now is the time to Return to Las Vegas

Now is the time to Return to Las Vegas

I have spent the last couple of weeks looking up accommodations for las Vegas. To my absolute surprise prices seem to be even lower than last year. If you chose to travel Sunday through Thursday, the prices are almost unreasonably low. The Riviera, where I stayed a...
