Viva Las Vegas !!

So here it is folks the pics from LAS VEGAS ! A city that has become dear to my heart. I call it the Disney world for adults !! This is my second trip to Sin City and I had such a blast on this trip.

The whole reason for the trip was to Jump off the Stratosphere, a 855ft guided jump ! I was not able to complete this last year due to a hangover so this year I made it the priority. I met up with some buddies from East to West and Even a random Spaniard LOL !

I would love to post all the pics but there is far to here are the one's for I <3 Travel!

Traveling Trips

On this most current trip I took to vegas I learned some valuable traveling trips. Some of this information will pertain to some people some of it might not just thought I would share.

Tip 1 : There of Good days to travel and bad days to travel

             Good Days = Tues, Thurs, Sat
             Bad Days = Mon, Wed, Fri, Sun

Tip 2: There is community of travelers out there that use "Buddy Passes" or "Non-Revenue" passes. These passes allow you to get on a flight for free but you will be traveling by standby. Its seems like a great deal but there is always a catch.

The most important tip I would say when traveling with these..( This knowledge was passed on to me by an avid buddy pass traveler) Get to the airport early , and I mean opening early ! If you intend for a good chance of getting to your destination. If you can't get an early flight..Leave! And try another day. I learned this the hard way spending 10 hrs back and fourth between terminals.

Tip 3: If you ever find yourself in Vegas and plan on clubbing or getting VIP understand that this will be expensive. Take this into account and either bring a big group of friends/family to split the costs. Surprisingly partying in vegas is something that can't be compared too and you might find yourself partying with celebrties!!

I hope this information helps someone...or just keeps you from sleeping in an airport!

Love for Providence !

So it seems people from across the pond have caught on to the this little old city we call Providence. Let me start this by saying this was brought to my attention by a friend of mine who wear Providence on his chest....I mean if he ripped off his shirt a giant "P" emblem would be under it coming to the rescue of his beloved city!

So it comes as no surprise he found this article in the Telegraph newspaper from the UK spotlighting Providence. I personally have grown to love Providence a bit more since exploring some of what it has to offer. From the diverse food scene, to the diverse bars, and the beautiful water fire.... it is a city that has slowly gained my acceptance.

So I share with you all, some people who reside in Providence or RI, and some who can gain some insight in what it has to offer... read up and come visit!

I Heart Travel Official Pictures !

Folks there finally in ! I know it was nearly a month ago I promised these pictures would be taken but thanks to some non compliant weather, laziness, and procrastination they have been sitting in my head for the last month or so ! Well wait no longer they are now here !

I chose a spot here in providence they call "The View" it's located near Brown University, its a small little park with a beautiful view of downtown providence. I enlisted the help of my friend Jeff( who has an amazing camera!)...The first pics will be a little more professional/official looking then pictures in the future for two reasons.

1. I want them to be less setup, and more taken while enjoying whatever location I find myself in.

2. Camera's of this caliber are expensive ! So my little handheld will do for now ! ( love you Lumix)!
