I love New Year’s Eve. It’s such a great night party, everybody in a good mood, waiting to welcome in the New Year. I usually like to try to travel somewhere new for New Year’s Eve, instead of just staying home. We went to Cancun Mexico one year, but my husband ended up sick so we didn’t go out and party for New Year’s Eve. When I booked the trip, I thought “how great would that be to party in Cancun on New Year’s Eve?”
Turns out it wasn’t really all that great. I don’t know if it is like that all the time, but the weather that year on New Years Eve was really not very nice. The daytime temperatures were not what I was expecting at all, and the days were overcast a lot. The good news about my husband being sick on New Year’s Eve, is on New Year’s Day was the best weather that we had the entire time we were there, and so I was able to enjoy my day on the beach without a hangover.
We also traveled to Hawaii one year. The weather was great there, just like I expected it to be. My problem with that trip, was that we traveled on New Year’s Eve, and so we were so tired from traveling that day and we did not go out partying that night. Again though, on new year 2022 website Day with no hangover, I enjoyed my day on the beach. And of course, since it was our first day there, we had another nine days to enjoy. So all in all, not a bad trip!
But I have to say that my favorite New Year’s Eve trip, is the time that we spent New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas Nevada. We arrived a couple of days before New Year’s Eve, and so had plenty of time to rest up from our flight before New Year’s Eve hit. And since we were there for a week, I had a few days after New Year’s Eve to recuperate.
Las Vegas is a great place to party on New Year’s Eve, they really know how to do a right. At about six o’clock in the evening, they start shutting down the strip. There was only a couple of places where you could even cross the strip in your vehicle. We headed down about seven o’clock in the evening, and the pedestrian traffic was fairly light at that time. I was afraid that I had booked a bum trip, and New Year’s Eve was going to be a bust.
We wandered down to the end of the strip, and I went in and got myself one of those big tall drinks. I then proceeded to jazz it up with my own stash. That drink lasted me all night long and it was the only one I really needed. So with my drink in hand, we headed back down towards the center of the strip. It was now about eight o’clock in the evening or so, and people were starting to come out.
As we were walking down the strip, we noticed a group of 4 to 5 young men, pushing a wheelchair. It was getting fairly crowded at this point, so we couldn’t really see clearly. But they stopped for a few moments, and as we got closer, we noticed that there was not a person in a wheelchair, but a keg. They had a keg strapped down to the wheelchair, and as their glasses got empty, they would just fill them up again. Good old American ingenuity.
