Here are two maps showing places I have been in the past few years.
I had the opportunity to attend the 2005 WebCT conference in San Francisco, CA. By far, San Francisco is one of the best places I have ever been. The city is vibrant with art, culture, and tradition. It is easy to walk to just about anywhere. The food is excellent — the overall experience is life changing. If you ever get a chance to go, visit SanFrancisco!
One year later I attended a UniPress Footprints conference in Las Vegas, NV. This is also a very cool city. However, I really do prefer San Francisco. The night life, as you can imagine is out of this world. At the conference, I met a very nice couple who were also attending the session. One evening we walked the whole strip. We saw the pirate ship sink at Treasure Island, we walked through Madam Tusdauds Wax Museum, we saw the volcano outside the Rivera, as well as the stunning fountains of the Bellagio. I played $20 at a few table games, and eventually was up to about $200 on the roulette table — then of course, I went bust. On my way back to my room, I hit a huge jackpot on a slot machine and won $100 — which I spent having a wonderful dinner at a Mexican themed restaurant in the Luxor. Good times. 🙂
