FROM THE AIRPORT, we took a shuttle bus to our car rental place nearby.  Budget is the name of the car company we rented the car from.  Yes, really budget rate, I think it is around $200 for 5 days and we planned to utilize the transport while in Las Vegas.  LOL...  Next, we checked in to our apartment where we would be staying for 5 nights.  It is called Westgate and it is a two room apartment.  We requested for ground floor for easy accessibility, anyway, it has only two floors.  hehehehe...

Our First Flight For 2022

FLYING ON NEW YEAR 2022.... We went to Las Vegas on the 1st January 2022.  The flight was only an hour plus away, it was a short one, just what I like.  Since it was a short flight, I did not watch any downloaded movies, just listened to some songs and spent the time taking pictures of the scenery from the window seat.  Baby was good too, he spent his time playing with his mom's iPad... and another half hour napping before our plane landed in Las Vegas....  These are some of the shots I managed to capture while passing through the desserts.....  Amazing scenery of the mountains covered in snow.... Baby and I before boarding.... And this marked our first New Year flight 2022...
