Where I stayed
Day 1 - San Francisco. The meet and greet is always an anxious time in group travel for the travellers and the tour leader, ours brought his mum along for support
Day 2 - Our first day was spent seeing the highlights of San Francisco and then heading off to Yosemite National Park. Yosemite Bug Hostel, a pretty unappetising name, and raining to boot.
Day 3 - A beautiful walk in a Winter Wonderland, 2 miles uphill and back to see giant Sequioas. Another night in our Mexican inspired room with the dodgy bed.
Day 4 - Bakersfield is a hole. After 3 try's, got a room that wasn't strewn with squashed food, pills, unclean, stained and unlockable!
Thank goodness for the Cowboy bar - Buck Owens Crystal Palace. Michael made us lots of friends, including toothless Connie, singing Randy and dancing Andy.
Day 5 & 6 - Vegas, Baby! We hit town after dark and straight to a 1 1/2 hr limo tour complete with pumpin music and 3 eskies of vodka, gin, rum and beer. Stops were made at random showy spots for a dance or drink or whatever!
Hit the outlets for a Hugo Boss jacket, went to the top of the Stratosphere - 108 floors for amazing views.
The sheer opulence of the clubs and casinos has to be seen to be believed! Venice, Bellagio, Circus, Circus and the Mirage.
At night saw The Beatles Cirque du Soleil show LOVE, wow!
