Day 4 and 5, From Los Angeles to Las Vegas

Today we are leaving the city that has given us such a warm welcome and gave us a great start to our holiday. Before we leave we have one more stop ... Venice Beach ... a place you have to see and feel. Such a colorful place right next to a gorgeous beach. I was looking for a nice hat and we tried some on at the first stand but didn't find one I like so we walked away and the owner of the stand acted all mad ... he thought we stole a hat because I had put on the one I already had again. Guess he doesn't know his inventory very well. 

After that we went on our way to Las Vegas (with an overnight stay in Barstow). Of course we had to stop to take some pictures of a route 66 sign, when you're on it, you have to live it, right?!  And then, right on the left side on the road, you see a very special place. Elmer's Bottle Tree Ranch. Elmer Long build an inspiring forest of trees of bottles. It's colorful, serene, creative ... just beautiful! Can you imagine the contrast when arriving in Las Vegas the day after? The city with all the lights and music and people. First thing in Vegas we cruised up and down the strip, I was watching my eyes out, such a different, special place. Since we saw it was quiet at the famous Pawn Stars pawn shop, we stopped and had a look. One stop we could scratch off the list of places to see. After we arrived at the hotel we freshened up and went out for dinner and some serious sightseeing. We had dinner, walked through all the hotels, some shops, watched the fountain show at the Belaggio and saw so many things.
There are not enough words to describe this city and the way it made me feel, at first overwhelmed but soon enough it grows on you and you start to see the special beauty. The hotels are like small towns, build for people to enjoy their day and forget time. All the gambling tables, the shops, the food courts ... it's truly amazing.

After a long day and with over 36,000 steps in our feet we fell asleep like babies.
