G is gaudy, garish, glamorous or great?….(A-Z challenge)

G is also for Gabbano

I leave Vegas today after a flying visit. I know Las Vegas divides opinions – on one hand it is garish and nasty on the other it is just a lot of fun and GREAT. Don’t get me wrong 48 hours is probably enough, including a trip out to Red Rock canyon, but there is a lot to include which you may either find great or gaudy. Here goes…

Wall of water at Aria
Grand or ghastly architecture?
Bellagio entrance hall
Floor of the Aria

…and another G– gondolas at the Venetian Hotel…

Do you have a strong view on Vegas?

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla https://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
