Ryan, where do we start this story. Don’t worry ill tell you – a local Las Vegas bar.
After working our buts off painting the floors of the van, paneling the doors and creating the cupboards in 40 degree heat we decided we would treat ourselves to some AC and a drink.
We drove around looking for a nice spot to have a bevvy & blog. That’s when we met Ryan he sat in his usual seat which just so happen to be next to me. He had come in to have a few drinks and watch the NHL final third game Las Vegas vs Washington
As a passing comment from Ryan to me ‘I hope you don’t mind if I smoke here’ ended up starting a great friendship. As the night progressed and we completely distracted him from the final we ended up spending many of hours discussing everything from family, work and travel.
Ryan was the first person to check out our ‘almost’ complete van he was also the first person to write on our Himalayan flags that hang in our van.
The next morning we woke up feeling very dusty, checked our Instagram and Ryan had messaged us asking if we would like to go out to dinner with him. Of course we jumped at the chance getting to meet such kind and caring people is what makes traveling so amazing.
Getting to create memories and life long experience with these people is even more important. We had booked ourselves into a night at the Excaliber literally washed dirt of us, dolled ourselves up and met Ryan.
What an amazing feeling to be spoilt, he took us to the Guy Faieres restaurant where his son was a server who we also got to meet, who is the splitting image of his father in looks, humour and openness.
After a very delicious meal ( also our first restaurant quality meal in a long time) we decided the night was still young so we went a bar nearby to carry on the Las Vegas experience. The boys both decided they were ready to test their hand at the black jack table by this point a few hands played with out much luck Ryan decided it was time to part ways and leave us to explore the Vegas Strip.
What a night to remember and a friend to never forget
