My ever-wonderful husband spent a very long time on the phone with Orbitz and fixed our Vegas trip–we’re now leaving Philly at 2:30 instead of 6:30, getting us to Vegas at 7:30 instead of 10:30. Which, to be fair, is even better. I can make 9:00 dinner reservations!
I do still feel like I’m neglecting the Vegas part of the trip planning, which I think is both good and bad. Good because, really, there’s not that much to plan. We’re going to go sit in the pool, drink, go out for dinner, and see cheesy shows. And you can’t walk three feet in Vegas without hitting at least a drink and a pool, or a nice restaurant and a show. So it really doesn’t require planning. It is bad, however, because I specifically remember planning our trip last year, and I’m thinking that missing out on the experience of trip planning will be a mistake. I feel like Vegas is getting the second-child treatment.
But now that I’ve decided that I can’t do any booking or real planning for our Europe trip for a few months, perhaps I can turn my attention to Vegas planning. I wonder if there are any good advance purchase show deals going on right now. Hmmm. I may have some googling to do. Maybe that will keep me from planning a last-minute trip to New York for President’s Day weekend (where there are NOT any last-minute show deals–trust me, I’ve checked!)
