Diving

Many people feel overwhelmed with day-to-day life. It is not easy to manage work, family, household chores and everything else that crops up.

Music-festival – EDC Las Vegas – from dusk till dawn

When you think of Las Vegas, what is the first thing that comes to mind?

Therefore, I want to offer you a different perspective of the city. There is so much more Las Vegas has to offer, including the surreal experience of the three-day Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) music festival.
