The farthest she was ever away from home, was to Las Vegas. This was a recent experience for Jessica, and it was a place she had always wanted to visit. The idea of being so far away from New Jersey didn’t bother her too much, but it made her feel a bit anxious and excited. If only she had picked a better time to visit Las Vegas, perhaps her overall experience would have been better. It’s not that she didn’t like it there, but the weather wasn’t as pleasant. Hours before arriving at Las Vegas, she had dressed in very warm clothes to fight of the cold in New Jersey. Temperatures were cold enough to make her not want to be outside for more than 5 minutes, as her feet and hands started to hurt with every movement or touch. She hoped that once at Last Vegas, this would change and that temperatures were a bit higher and warmer.
This wasn’t the case. At first, she didn’t feel it, but soon after spending some time around the casinos, hotels, museums, and shopping districts, she was completely frozen head-to-toe. The air was very dry, to the point that her was bleeding from her nose. Now more than ever, it made her missed home, and wish she wasn’t so far away. Still, she managed to enjoy herself at Las Vegas, despite weather. After all, this was a place she always wanted to visit and have a great time. The cold alone was surely not going to ruin that for her.
