The group, can't remember if everyone joined in

Melanie started this meet up as part of an initial request from Chris (www.travbuddy.com/aussieguy) who was supposed to be in the Las Vegas area in mid September. It turns out; he was not able to attend for reasons best known to him and Melanie probably? I’m assuming. I on the other hand had no intentions of attending this particular meet because I was supposed to have gone to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. As luck might have it, all my Brazil plans fell down the drain and I found myself left with two weekends in a row with nothing to do. I went to the broomcorn festival and then decided why not Vegas?

 

So here I’m at the end of it all thinking, wow! It was an incredible get together. I flew southwest airlines, which is the airline of choice: being a Rapids reward member, I always get great treatment and great fares. I literally booked my flight a week before travel and the rest fell in place. I must say, this meet up was incredible because I met so many newer Travbuddies and all the ones I know from previous meets,  always that warm feeling.

The pre-meet was held at the Blue Martini Lounge (www.bluemartinilounge.com) in Town Square not far from the Mandalay Bay. In attendance were

Melanie (www.

I believe there were more people at the pre-meet and I do hope I have not missed out anyone’s name, if I have please let me know. I still need to rest so go easy on me, lol! Louise and Adrian were the birthday people, Melanie and Erin were very thoughtful, a cake and gifts were presented. Poor Louise was so tired and jetlagged but she looked as bright as sunshine when she came in, it was so nice to finally meet her. Dana had a pleasantness and friendliness that reached to all, meeting her felt like a familiar soul from another time and another place, very endearing I might add. Joe was the furthest traveled buddy coming in all the way from Australia. If he had not come, Sven would have had to take that spot coming in from Germany.

 

I love travbuddy meet Ups!
