Happy First Day of Spring!
Spring Break is a time-honored tradition, isn’t it? Every spring, college students put away the books and forget about the exams (at least for a week anyways), and travel to the locations that they have been dreaming about since Christmas. Throughout my college years I found myself going back to the same location, year after year: Las Vegas, Nevada (said in my best radio-star voice). The location has everything that a broke college student could ever want: cheap hotels, cheap food, cheap entertainment, and cheap alcohol. 😉 Most importantly, I was able to get out of the cold wintery weather of my small college town, and spend a few days in the warm weather of the desert.
We would spent our days exploring the strip, window shopping, and laying by the pool. At nights we would try our luck at gambling, do a little drinking, and soak up the nightlife. During our first Spring Break in Vegas we actually won enough money on the slots to pay for our entire week in the City of Sin. 🙂 While browsing through old photos from that trip, I am surprised that it was four years ago, it feels like it was just last year.
While my traveling standards may have raised slightly since those broke college days, Las Vegas remains a place that I just can’t get enough of. I am looking forward to traveling back to the City of Sin in a little over a month, not to indulge for Spring Break, but to attend an underwriting conference, which will be just as fun, right? 🙂
