For the past couple of days I have been spending most of my time strolling the streets of Las vegas. Something that I never in a million years imagined I would be doing, but something that I have now decided I will be doing again, hopefully sooner rather than later.

Now for those of you who have not yet been lucky enough to visit Vegas, first of all you are missing out and second of all, it’s huge. Sure it may only be a strip, but that strip goes on for miles and miles and miles. Trust me, my lovely big brother made me walk it last night as fast as I possibly could, while stressing about making our Cirque Du Soleil: Mystere Show on time.

Funny story actually; not only did we make the show on time, we were a whole twenty-four hours early. Needless to say, when we tried again tonight, for the second night in a row, we all agreed fairly quickly that a taxi would probably be the best option.

Despite the marathon of a walk though, as well as those few hours last night of wanting to kill my big brother, when we did finally get to sit down and watch the show I would have to say that it was all worth it. For our very first show in Las Vegas, I couldn’t possibly have asked for anything more. It was graceful, comedic, suspenseful, entertaining and for the first time in my life, I was on the edge of my seat the whole entire time. As far as the entertainment industry goes, I don’t think I have ever been more impressed.

So take my word for it, on the off chance that you’re ever in the neighbourhood and feel like watching a little bit of acrobatics, make sure you find your way to Cirque Du Soleil; Mystere on Treasure Island. I promise you that you won’t be disappointed. Well, unless of course you decide to walk the hundred and one miles to get there and end up missing your show.
