After nearly completing our south trip of the Las Vegas Strip yesterday, we decided today was going to be the day of us touring the northern part of The Strip.

The Strip actually is really long but has no official boundaries. It is however said to run roughly between the Stratosphere Hotel on the northern edge and the Las Vegas Sign on the southern edge. Yesterday, we only went to the last hotel on the Strip, Mandalay Bay. The Sign actually is a little while further down south.
Today, we will not make it all the way up to the Stratosphere, as we planned to travel only to the Wynn and Encore Hotels. From there, the Stratosphere is still quite a distance away.

Without going into too much details it is safe to say that every single hotel we have been to is really beautiful and really big! Also, they all have excellent air conditioning which comes in handy when temperatures outside start reaching 40 degrees Celsius. Especially when the sun is out and the wind has picked up a bit.

Tonight was a little bit of a special night for me, as it was the night my birthday present was to happen. Yay!
This meant we had to go to the Rio Hotel to see a show by Penn & Teller!
As I was pretty sure I wanted to go to their show, I kind of dragged Kirsten along with me. But luckily, she found the magic show to be really good, just like me.
So here’s another tip: when in Las Vegas, go see a show by Penn & Teller!
