    Ah. The cooing part is a no, then.

    All the rest of it though... That you?
    To be honest, when I was in Vegas I was very well behaved. I didn't drink or gamble.

    Just got back from New York about a week ago.

    I loved it. The people were friendly, the food was good, and there was plenty do. Aside from the toilet water being so high up I don't really have much to complain about.

    Want to do a road trip from Boston, down the Appalachians to Florida, through the Deep South and then through South West, travelling up the West Coast to Seattle. A chance to get to see small town America, the natural beauty and variety of the country, plus all the cities and sights along the way. But it would cost far too much to do, and I'd never get the time off work!

    Went to the Strato hotel or whatever its called and went on the rides there. Went to this crappy indoor theme park, went to some restaurants (Okay I had some beer there). Saw the fountains. I wanted to see a show at The Wynn but it was too expensive.

    Just chilled really. We checked out the casinos but neither of us are into gambling. Not into it. I'd definitely hit up Vegas again though.

    Yeah it was similar to that, it was like $200 for a ticket or something like that, or $90 for obscured vision tickets. The Wynn was even more (but same sort of thing as Cirque Du Soleil)

    If I was to go back (now that I'm single) my experience would be totally different.

    Me and my ex didn't argue in Vegas, we had a really good time, so it would just be different I suppose.

    I took my ex on surprise trip to US. I spent months planning, worked my ass off to be able to afford it. Flew business class via British Airways and we went to

    California (LA, San Diego) then stayed in a lovely five star hotel in Vegas. Saw the Grand Canyon and that, then flew to Ohio and visited Cedar Point. That big theme park with loads of rollercoasters and crap food. Then drove to Buffalo, Niagra etc to see The Falls, then to Mt Morris, NY. Visited Letchworth State Park. It's known as Grand Canyon of the East. It's all foresty and really nice. Several waterfalls. Then went to New York City. Our hotel was situated in Times Square. $800 for like 3 nights. Amazing. I've also visited San Fran (sorry I know the locals hate it being called this)

    Was really romantic. Cost me many thousands. Broke up on our last day in NYC.
    Still a better love story than twilight

    I've been to NY and Florida. NY is scary, it's so busy even more so then London. So pretty though.

    Went to Orlando in Florida, all I can say about it is; it has good theme parks and it's wayyy too hot!!

    Glad you loved it! Yes, if you get the chance, go to Seattle or SF. Interesting - I never noticed a difference in the height of the American and British toilet water lol

    Clubs are a must-go if you have the chance. But it's expensive for a guy to get in usually. Yes, the Circus-circus is very crappy lol. Did you go to The Venetian and Caesar's Palace?

    Yeah I tried to upload some pics of the Venetian and the Strato hotel but it wouldn't let me! Didn't go to any clubs unfortunately. I mistook Circus-Circus for New York New York where they have that big rollercoaster. I was thinking...hmm doesn't this go outside?

    I didn't go to Caesars Palace but I saw it!

    I've been to America three times, I will be going again this summer.

    Basically I have been to 9 states:

    North Dakota
    Virginia
    New Jersey
    New York
    Georgia
    Florida
    Minnesota
    Maryland
    South Dakota

    I have some 2nd cousins there. I mainly go for holidays, I don't typically go to Orlando like most British people, I actually found it quite boring. I don't think Orlando is the real America.

    I don't really take people seriously when they say they have been to Orlando, in my eyes that's not what America is like.

    Overall, I like America and I would move there but I don't get excited when I holiday there. I think I've been there enough times now that I've kind of seen the general idea of how it is, it's all very similar.

    I havent been yet but Im going next year to New York and maybe San Francisco next to my cousins. Even though Ive never been, I love the US (apart from the feds lool). Also want to visit LA but i'll see how it goes.
    America is nothing like you think it is. It is only a tiny bit like you see on television.
