Said to Mr Rois this eve about it, and he did say that it would probably be more interesting for people who liked engineering. We were not those people.

Gmac, how are you enjoying MB? I admit to being disappointed by the pool because when we got there in a day 1 it was early eve and there were empty plastic glasses and bottles littered through the Lazy River. Hopefully better experience for you.

Iíve been there 3 times now and my favourite hotel was Trump  :-[

Mr Rois has gone up in the world since I've known him but I suppose that could be said of us all  ;D

Go to see Absinthe at Caesars or Opium at the Cosmo. Or better yet see both. They are both unreal, hilarious shows.

Food wise I loved the buffets - the best we did were the Wicked Spoon at the Cosmo, the Aria and the Caesars buffets.

The breakfasts here are ludicrous.

Good to see we can still afford nice trips. With us in the grip of uncertainty due to Brexit and with the economy so bad!
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

In terms of spending/money on such trips what do you find works best?? only so much cash you really wanna take with you on long trips...travellers cheques easily cashed in hotels/casinos??? debit cards at atm's have fee's im guessing,the rate for sterling to dollars is crap also. what about a post office type money card,top it up and use it when u can and have additional cash for tipping/gambling etc??

I signed up to N26 (similar to Revolut) recently for a trip to Australia. Perfect. Didn't handle cash once for the whole trip. You get 5 free cash withdrawals per month if you must.

Any reason for not using Revolut?

There was, but I can't remember what it was and it wasn't major. I didn't know about the stuff Shark refers to. I just remember that, when comparing the two, N26 had something slightly preferable, but I could easily have gone for either.

They are much of a muchness. Getting the spot rate on FX is great.
