Neon-Museum-1

If you’re heading to Las Vegas the number one place I absolutely recommend is the Neon Museum! Located in Downtown, this is literally where the old Vegas signs go to rest. It’s actually my second time visiting – and I’m pretty sure I’ll pay a visit every single time I go to Vegas. You just notice something new every single time. Plus, last time we went at night, and this time we got to see all of the incredible colours an hour or two before sunset.

My favourite sign? It’s actually a tough one. I love the Sahara sign, the giant Aladdin lamp and the big letter B, which used to be for Barbary’s casino. It’s massively similar to my husband’s name (Barnaby) so we got a really cute photo together in front of it. He’s a shy guy though, so I won’t post it here. Just imagine myself and a beardy fellow in front of a giant B, and you’ve got it.

The other thing I love about the Neon Museum (apart from the obvious!) is the gift shop. They seriously have the best merch. When I last went a couple of years ago I didn’t buy some incredible atomic style glasses. I’ve literally spent the last two years daydreaming about them! Well, I wish I could say they had them this time – but nope. I more than made up for it though, buying a bunch of sign themed pins, a t-shirt, and magnets. So yeah, I’m a happy lady!

Oh, and one more thing! Make sure you book in your Neon Museum visit (you can do it on their website). You have to have a booking to look around – so make sure you plan ahead!

Las-Vegas-Sign-2

Oh hi! I kind of genuinely can’t believe how much travelling I’ve done in the last year.. Seriously, since I left New Zealand I’ve been to (what I would consider) a whole bunch of places – Laos, The Netherlands, and all over Thailand. In NZ I went overseas roughly every two years (if that!) so I’m pretty darn proud of myself.

Which brings me to my latest.

Hi, from Las Vegas!

It’s been my third time visiting and since it’s one of my favourite places ever, I’m stoked! This time, for the first time ever, we finally made it out to the fabulous sign. And although it may look sunny, let me a assure you, it totally wasn’t! Or at least, coming from Thailand it wasn’t! 10 degree highs are totally not gonna cut the mustard – or anything else for that matter! This lady needs a solid 20… at least.

I didn’t take many pictures this trip at all. I had high hopes for a YouTube video too – but didn’t even get to that. But you know what? I just focused on being in the moment and having fun. And that worked well. We went vintage shopping, ate a whole lot of Mexican food, and did a bunch of shopping. It was good. We also went to my favourite place.. ever! I can’t wait to show you more in my next post!
