A couple weeks ago I posted a pre trip report and as expected very little of it got followed. A little background to start off with each day posted as a reply. I would have liked to post each day as a reply right away, but as I am seeing how long this is taking me I decided to just post them as I finish them up. I can never decide which format I like TRs in best, but hopefully this works out. I will try to update this intro post with the post number of each day so those who want to skip the comments can jump directly.
This was Melissa (M) and I’s 9th trip to Vegas together and my 11th overall. For a few years we were going to Vegas every 6-9 months, but a couple things changed:
1. M finally talked me into going on some beach vacations and we have fallen in love with Jamaica. We have now been to Jamaica 3 times over the past 2 years and can not wait to get back again.
2. Our last trip to Vegas was not our best. You can read the TR under my name, but in summary it was too long (9 nights) and in the winter. Walking between casinos at night was freezing at times so we stayed very close to our home base (Paris). We had no luck gambling, were sick on and off through the trip and ended up “Vegas bored” during the days. We were tired of gambling, it was way too cold for a pool and we didn’t want to just drink all day.
In planning for this trip, we decided to go when it was warm, stay just 5 nights and chose a nicer hotel that was new to us (Palazzo). You will have to wait until the summary of Wednesday to see how this turned into a 8 night trip.
