    Hi All.

    Heading to the airport shortly to start my trip. I have to fly from London to Zurich, Switzerland for a few days with my work, then back to London on Wednesday night - my (10 hour) flight to Vegas is 11am Thursday morning, will arrive at McCarran around 1.30pm and depart the following Monday at around 3pm.

    Not the longest of trips (only 4 nights), but plan to make the most of it.

    It's the first time in Vegas without my wife, am there with friends on this trip. Staying at Aria on an MLife deal, 3 nights comped room and $500 FP and $100 resort credit, which is nice.

    Will post some photos as I go along using Tapatalk and let you know how I get on.

    Really can't wait to play some of my favourite slots, Godfather 3-reel, Fu Dao Le, QuickHits, WOF, DaVinci Diamonds, Wolf Run, Wonka 3 reel and Top Dollar (to name a few).

    Oh yeah, have never had a handpay, so hopefully this is the trip it happens!

    Look forward to meeting some of you at Cosmo on the 25th for the HL pull.

    Best,
    VWP

    Safe travels. I'll be at Aria the same dates playing those same DaVinci and Wolf Run machines. Let's hope we both have lots of luck! We'll have to introduce ourselves. Hopefully we'll hit a monster handpay at the slot pull.

    Safe travels and good luck when you hit Vegas. I'm arriving on the 28th when you are leaving. I would say we might wave at each other at the airport but the international flights are out of a different terminal. :)

    I always miss Diana by a half day almost every trip. I think she's avoiding me! Bwahaha! Looking forward to G2E as there will be a lot of board members in LV at that time. Should be able to have a huge collaborative high limit slot pull with so many of us in town.

    Not a bad day in Zurich. Weather very nice.

    Lunch at the Zeughauskeller, a 500 year old restaurant. Has the best sausages I'ver ever eaten but I stuck to liver dumpling soup (doesn't look that appetising I agree):

    Dinner at an Italian restaurant right by the hotel. I had seafood salad, the the veal with lemon butter sauce and veg: a3416569a66691b7c17f6eff9a0a9920.jpg

    Another day in Zurich, leave tomorrow at 3pm to fly to London Heathrow, then taxi to London Gatwick. Staying overnight at Gatwick, flight to Vegas is 11am Thursday. So excited.

    Some photos of today in Zurich. Food is very nice, very traditional. Dinner was scallops and asparagus to start, followed by lobster, black rice spring roll, spinach and risotto.

    Taxi from LHR to LGW? That could be very pricey!

    I'm sure we'll meet up on a future trip someday, but darn it we do seem we just miss each other by days on your trips. Great photos and start to your live trip report!

    Yep, finally going to meet up thanks to G2e. :)
