Traveling gypsy

Maybe gypsy is stretching it just a wee bit but I have been traveling a good deal and it’s only just started! A couple weekends ago I was in Las Vegas for the WMDPG Symposium. It was my first trip to Vegas and I’m still in awe of the entire scene. 

I’ve heard it referred to as an adult playground or Disney World and I can see why. Any city where you can buy alcohol on the street and walk with it at your leisure is the perfect setting for an adult playground if you ask me (and makes for some interesting sight seeing). 

I’m not a gambler by any means but I did manage to enjoy the strip and the casino scene. Mostly I just enjoyed watching folks getting really really worked up at the black jack tables. 

In all seriousness though, I enjoyed a really great dinner at Sushi Roku. There’s a handful of locations on the west coast from Arizona to LA. The sushi was delicious.

Tuna Sashimi Carpachio. Sesame Soy & Garlic Chips.

Shima Roll: Shrimp wrapped spicy tuna, avocado & cilantro.

Assorted Sashimi.

Seaweed salad.

 A few other favorite snapshots of Vegas:

Fountain show at the Bellagio.

Palms. Not to be confused with the casino.

Hotel pool…and beach?

Beatles Love Cirque Du Soleil

CHO at the SHOW.

NYC in Vegas?

Big Lights. Big City.

 

Next stop for this traveling gypsy: Napa Valley. A wine lover and foodie’s paradise…

Peace, love, and food,

Kara
