Perfect Travel Dream Job

I've obtained my dream job! So, I can't tell you what it is, but I can tell you it's awesome (I know, I know sounds very Legally Blond!). Anyway, I spent the past few weeks in LA and Las Vegas and Boston as mentioned in my last post. I don't have any pics of LA or Boston, yet, but I do have a few nice pictures of beautiful Las Vegas.

For many people, it's hard to believe that I've been around the world, to six continents, over 40 countries, but have never been to Vegas until I was 25 years old. But like I tell everyone, it just wasn't on the top of my priorities list. My idea of what Vegas would be like-old, whithered, burnt out cocktail waitresses and depressed and obsessed gamblers, hundreds of Elvis impersonators walking around the streets, and tons of "ladies of the night" on street corners or at the craps tables with their clients.

Some of my preconceived notions about Vegas were correct, but mostly I found a very lively, interesting, and exciting town. So much to do and see. As I heard people say many times, Vegas is the Disneyland for grown-ups. I agree. It's definitely a fantasy land. I'm back in Houston now and back to reality. Thank goodness I came home when I did, those penny slots at Ceasars almost convinced me to cash out my 401(k)!

Next post will be about how much I love LA!

Where in the World is Jerri?

I have a very long and strange story to tell you about my crazy life and why I haven't blogged all month. Right now, I'm recuperating, but tonight I'll post pictures and stories of my adventures. I can tell you that I've been chilling in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Boston and it's been a wild ride. More to come...
