New York, Las Vegas & San Francisco all in one day

Well, when izzi told me he was going out of town for a few days, I didn’t pay much attention until he mentioned San Francisco!! I was sitting up and let me tell you I was paying attention. So at 4am I was packed and sitting on the edge of the kitchen bench trying to eat breakfast (Yukkie Doo!) I mean I have to say noone but noone in our house ever wakes me up at 4am. The driver arrived on time as always, so thank you Rennee and off to JFK we went. Now I have to say I have never travelled on Virgin America, but boy it was like being in a disco, there were purple neon lights and pink over head lights, whooa, so if you haven’t ever tried it please do.

The only complaint I had was that they do not feed you on the flight and the snacks they had were all full of Carbs (which you all know by now I have given up in search of thinness!) So we have to make a pit stop at Vegas and izzi says ‘let’s hit the strip! ‘ he has to be kidding I am thinking how are we going to get ‘downtown’ and back in less than 3 hours? Panic not should have been the order of the day as if you have ever been to Vegas you will know the airport is at the end of the famous Las Vegas strip. ┬áSo off to the Bellagio we went for lunch. Now I kid you not when I say not only do they have slot machines in the airport they have them in the bathroom ( restroom)! yes they do! and they even have them at the bar. This place is Gambling and beyond, crikey I would be bankrupt if we stayed any longer.

Bellagio Baby!

So back to the airport we go and then it is off to San Francisco, one of my fav cities in the whole world. I so love San Francisco I really do and as soon as we arrived I made a reservation at the Stinking Rose where they flavour their garlic with food. It is the most amazing restaurant and if you are ever in San Fran you must go there. We came out knowing that if there were any Vampires on the loose we were going to be safe. People starting crossing the road ahead of us, I think they could smell us!

I took izzi to see the Golden gate Bridge and he was so excited, he had only seen it in the movies, so this was a first for him.

Golden Gate Bridge or is it the izzi bridge?

The next stop was torture for me as we went to the Jelly Belly Bean factory and I was in heaven except I was not allowed to eat any of them, they are not part of this diet. WTH !! I have to say though when noone was looking I slipped a few of their new flavors into my mouth Shush! although some of the flavors I gave a miss like Barf and buggers, I mean you tell me how does anyone know if they taste right and who got the job of making them? gross totally gross.

We moved on to Los Angeles and stayed in Pasadena, if you have ever been there it is a beautiful place and nothing like LAX. We went out to the Warner Brothers Studios and were invited to have our picture taken on the set of friends do you recognize the sofa?

izzi wanted to buy a car so off we went to look around the showrooms and this is what he picked out, not sure of the delivery date but I think I might have to buy him a black mask for Christmas and change his name to Bruce Wayne!

We had a fantastic trip, we met some incredible people, but I have to say I was glad to be back in my own bed and in the city I love just in time for Thanksgiving. New York, New York so good they named it twice.
