Our trip to French Polynesia departs from LAX. Once we had secured the international portion of our trip, we needed to decide how to get ourselves to LA from Albany. We knew we wanted to arrive the day before our flight to Tahiti so that we wouldn’t be cutting it close if we were to encounter flight delays.
Mr. Crab suggested that we kick off our mega vacation with a bang by starting out with a couple nights in Las Vegas. We both enjoy a party weekend in Vegas from time to time (case in point), but Mr. C really loves Vegas. This plan worked out well (and wouldn’t really be out of our way), since most West Coast bound Southwest Airlines flights out of Albany fly through Vegas and we’d be stopping there anyway!
When we visit Vegas we usually stay at the Flamingo because of its relatively reasonable rates and central Strip location. For this trip, we found a great deal on two nights in a Fab Deluxe King Room.
