Las Vegas, Sin City, City of Lights…… Well while it’s high rises, light shows and entertainment are vast and impressive on so many levels it was definitely not my thing!
I had a good chuckle at myself yesterday as I walked down the strip with all the craziness and energy that is Vegas and felt like it was all a bit too over the top for me. There was a time in my life when I am sure I would’ve had a huge jol here but it’s just not where I am right now. I also think that having coming from the immense beauty of Colorado to the non stop 24/7 vibe of Vegas was maybe too much for me.
I did however walk 23000 steps yesterday in 48 degree heat while I checked out the strip. I also imagine my sister and mom having a laugh as they both know how much I hate shopping and malls so would’ve appreciated the fact that I at least gave it a go.
Back at my hotel I met a great lady and we had a good laugh as she felt pretty much the same as me about all the craziness. We landed up having dinner and found out that we were both on similar journeys and pathways of change. As my teacher Robin always says there are no coincidences in life and it really was good to meet here and make a new friend.
Today I am heading out to the Grand Canyon which I know will be more my thing. I am unfortunately not going to get to the Falls as the only way in will be to hike in as helicopters not flying in due to heat wave. Unfortunately with having just recovered from pneumonia this is one of the times where I just need to listen to the Docs and be safe rather than mess up the rest of my trip by being stupid and pushing it.
Tomorrow I leave for Seattle and can’t wait to see Heika and her girls and get some quality time in beautiful Seattle.
