Whale Watching

Yeah! I've found out that we will be able to do a Whale Watching tour from Boston.

I've always fancied a Whale Watching tour but wherever we've been, it's been the wrong time to go. So, I'm quite happy that in Boston, the season is April to October.

And it's not too expensive either, $31.00 for a 3 hour trip :o)

Grand Canyon Tour Booked

After some researching, we have finally booked our Grand Canyon Tour.

We decided on the Grand Voyager Expedition booked through Papillon Tours.

It was a bit more expensive than we were expecting to pay but I think it'll be worth the money. It's 5.5 hours from hotel to hotel and includes an areoplane flight to the GC, a helicopter ride 4,000ft down to the Canyon Floor, a boat ride along the Colorado River and a boat ride to Guano Point with lunch!

We also got a 2-4-1 voucher for the Vegas Night Flight which I'd wanted to do :o)

Arriving in Style

We're flying into Vegas and what better way to get from the airport to our hotel than by Limo?

I decided it might be fun to arrive at the hotel in a limo, well, we are staying in the best hotel in Vegas so I couldn't turn up in a taxi! :oP

So, for my birthday, my Mam and Dad have booked me a limo hotel transfer. We get picked up in a stretch limo and taken to the hotel via a 30 minute strip tour. We also get champagne and I get a red rose :o)

My San Francisco Birthday Present

For my birthday, Dan booked me a Sunset Champagne Seaplane Flight in San Francisco :o)

It's a 40 minute flight over San Francisco, Mount Tamalpais and The Golden Gate Bridge whilst sipping champagne!

The flight departs from Sausalito which we thought was going to be difficult to get to but it seems Blue & Gold Fleet operate a ferry to Sausalito so we've decided to get there in the afternoon to have a wander aroudnd before heading to the Seaplane base for 5.oopm.
