I am 2 months ahead of the game. But the journey begins... Wynn was all booked for 5 nights in May. I had two comped nights and $200 freeplay thrown in again. I know it was just a marketing offer but it was an OFFER. Little minion rollers like me will take it BUT THEN! But then I got an itch to tour the length and breadth of Western Europe on a dime... And what do you know? What Wynn cost me for 5 nights including rates, taxes, fees and incidentals (I always count the deposit as a goner so it feels like a bonus when I get it back lol) would be able to purchase me ALL of 1. a roundtrip ticket to Europe, 2. multi-city flights within Europe *and* 3. frugal accomodations...with some change left to spare. I figured I already had my once-in-a-lifetime-for-a-low-roller trip to Wynn last December when they lavished me with multiple free buffets, a free dinner at Sinatra, some comped nights, some comped nightclub admissions and $200 freeplay!!! Oh, those slots are where it's at So, I bit the bullet and booked a dirt-cheap Euro trip after my Vegas trip. It absolutely broke my heart to leave Wynn. But I LOVE a good DEAL! As you may know, there are two groups of people in America who have the most flexibility and time when it comes to travel: the retired and students. Thus, I am exploiting this student time for all that it's worth....before life gets underway. Friggin 5-hour statistics qualifying exam towards the end of the summer sooooo I thought I would treat myself! Technically I haven't had a truly "free" summer in 4 consecutive years between school and work...but I ALWAYS seem to make a WAY! This time...I have no obligations. SOMEBODY's getting into something!! haha :evillaugh I am all over the idea of hitting up crazy pools, dayclubs, nightclubs, nightswims! BUT really...I might just spend quiet time watching movies and banging 10 cents on slots. I will be there from April 29-May 18 so, I know someone always jokes when I say this, but uh...it will be QUITE the whirlwind!! My goals are really simple this time...I am spending the maximum amount of time on the strip, getting lots of sun and splashing in the pool, watching a ton of shows especially (hopefully) the Billboard awards, doing my regular bouncing from place to place, meeting cool and interesting people and just taking it all in! I am in for a ride...I think.
