I didn't plan this trip very far ahead. My husband & I had originally planned on going to the Vegas Rockabilly weekend. However the date this year was on I believe Easter weekend. Consequently the flight rates were over $600 pp. So he said I should just pick a date and go by myself. I was sitting stressed out from work one night and looked at Delta app, found a flight and boom. Of course this has led to continual 'digging' that I wouldn't let him go lol. (He could only go the one weekend in April with his work schedule). Booked out of MSP non-stop leaving Saturday the 6th. Only a couple of people I work with even knew where I was going since there is one that is very negative and sarcastic about me going anywhere. I normally feel like enough comments are made in advance that actually put a damper on my vacation so I kept my mouth shut. I was late in booking and then paid no attention to the week I was going until I went to book a room. All I could get at Paris was a hearing accessible or handicap room at Paris. I did have more options at PH, Ballys or Flamingo but really prefer the smaller footprint of Paris when it's late and I'm tired. I gave it a night to think about it and then all that was left was handicap end of hall. (I despise end of hall when traveling alone). Booked it and crossed fingers for a room change at Diamond check-in. I try to plan my meals out. Being an insulin dependent diabetic, it's important, especially when traveling alone. Otherwise I had a tendency to end up sitting there with low blood sugar and at that point nothing sounds good. When my bff and her family are going too, I let it fly a bit more and she will come up with something if I am starting to get the 'eh I don't knows'. This trip I had a nice little chart which flew out the window a bit since I didn't feel well for several days of the trip. (Not contagious - just left over stress from work). So I actually ended up a few days only eating a couple meals and a small snack in the middle somewhere. I was very happy to have my new Dexcom G6 (Continual Glucose Monitor) as it transmits a reading every 5 minutes to my phone, which in turn beeps me if I start to drop below designated levels. I finally was able to sleep entire nights without having to set an alarm to wake myself up & check level. Normally I try to find at least one NEW thing to do each trip. This trip was going to be the Flamingo Uncovered Tour. Around $54 after taxes. I booked this for Sunday afternoon (later to change). I did my Secret Garden booking for 2 (I had invited a few different friends to come with but none did) for Tuesday. I've been there numerous times and find it so relaxing. I did need to book this ahead as the reward expiration date was before my trip. I planned on doing a couple of shows with my Diamond tickets. That being said, with not feeling the greatest I decided to skip sitting 2 hours in a confined crowd and didn't use my tickets. I headed early to Eau Claire for the park and fly shuttle to airport. Now run by Groome Transportation, which is evidently located cross-country. They have always been great but this trip their customer service was 5 star (more on that later). Flight at MSP set for 11:47 am. Arrived a few minutes early, however POTUS had just landed so we were stopped short of the gate and had to wait about 15 minutes. Had a POTUS experience a few years back with Obama, however that was on departure. I had pre-booked the VIP Shared Ride Shuttle round trip, which in the past I have always highly recommended. This trip I was not as pleased with the service to the Strip. I checked in and they asked me to wait a few minutes. I waited while they grabbed groups of people coming out with no ressie, sending them over to pay and then putting them in the cars (including the smaller town cars). All of a sudden I am told 'sorry it will be a while longer, we are now out of cars'. Really? There were 7 limos & cars sitting there which you just randomly assigned to walk-ups and then now you are out. I kept thoughts to myself other than saying I could have easily shared the one town car that the single gal wanted to take to MGM. I I indicated that they could have given her a slight discount to share with me and saved an entire round trip. The dispatch fellow got this 'oh cr*p, that would have been a good idea' look on his face lol. Finally after over 45 minutes they said there was a car 5 minutes out. (I was at that point just read to turn around to the desk & request a refund and just head for a taxi). Regardless, my driver was very nice and had me to Paris within a few minutes. His tip did not suffer because of the treatment at the staging area. However, I will seriously reconsider using them in the future.
