There are some places in the United States, even in different countries that I have always wanted to travel to. Las Vegas was one of those places. It wasn't even so much the gambling aspect of Vegas as it was just everything else there is to do and see there!
First off I must say that neither my husband nor I have been on an airplane before. So there's that. If it was up to me and we had infinity time, I would have loved to drive across country. Though, only having so much time, we didn't have time to waste, so we both took our first plane ride together. You ask people that have been on planes before what to expect. After everything they have said about take off, during flight and landing, I must say it wasn't as bad as I imagined it to be.
Being as we were on somewhat of a budget, we took the plane out of Cleveland, OH instead of our local airport in Pittsburgh, PA. It really felt like such a long trip to get there but we made it and then the nerves set in.
Our first ever flight was through Frontier Airlines. It was an airbus, but big enough for me as I have never been on a plane, it was a great start. It was really a relaxing flight as I was not expecting too much as I didn't have expectations from prior flights. It took approximately 5 hours to get to Vegas. My husband said there was at one point a time while we were in the air that he got a little scared, as there was another airline right out the window very close to our plane.
As we landed in Vegas, the adrenaline kicked in... we were here. We were ready to experience Vegas. Though, it was 11PM!
