Las Vegas 2020

Our recent trip to Las Vegas was partly vacation, and partly to visit Conexpo where many of customers of PG Trionic exhibit their vehicles; here’s a selection of photos from Snorkel, CMEC, Skyjack and GMG (European and China customers were mostly not present!):

 

We did also have a great time at the Bellagio, walking the strip, seeing two Cirque Du Soleil shows …

The Neon Museum

I’ve often planned to visit The Neon Museum in Las Vegas but discovering it’s just a 20 minute walk from our hotel, we headed over there this morning. Although many of the “relics” are before my time, most are recognisable and they make for great colorful photos – I was very pleased with how well the iPhone photos came out (use of “real” cameras is banned!). So here’s lots of photos!

 

There’s a Tim Burton theme to the museum right now, with a number of his art pieces hidden among the other works – here’s some more photos!

Cancun vacation

After discovering that Cancun, Mexico, was a short two hour flight from Orlando, and inexpensive even with “all inclusive”, we just returned from a week at the El Caribe Deluxe where we spent lots of time at the pool, a little in the ocean (big waves most of the week!), and ate too much (“all inclusive” as I said!)

Here’s some photos of the hotel, ocean, sunrises, food choices, …

We ate in a buffet restaurant most nights, with a different theme each time – best was (no surprise) the Mexican theme, with lots of flavors to try, and much better to try “risk free” in a buffet setting where you can leave anything you don’t like!

One disadvantage of the Cancun location was there’s really nothing but hotels along the beach, nothing much to walk too – and a busy divided highway anyway! But we did find and walk to a set of ruins one morning, El Rey, very inexpensive ($7 for both of us!) and quite interesting (including all the Iguanas!)

Mind, even though we walked there as soon as it opened (8am) it was still crazy hot walking back! Back to the hotel pool to cool off …

Cancun is a nice location for total relaxation, but not enough to do if more than poolside is wanted …

 

Wyoming 2019

Our “summer” vacation was surprisingly cool for the first half, with snow and a need for coats, hats, gloves … but beautiful views of stunning mountains, rivers and lakes, as well as sightings of Bison, Black Bear, Elk and more! I’ve posted our trip in multiple sections, and there’s a video presentation (courtesy of Apple Memories) if you prefer …
