Holiday: Return to Oz – Day 2 (of 18): Singapore to Melbourne via Jakarta
Reading time: < 1minute...WEDNESDAY the 20th, 8am local time (that’s Midnight, back home!)
Morning All! We’ve just landed at Changi Airport, Singapore. And after a challenging journey trying to find the Garuda Business Lounge (it’s past all the other Lounges, behind the lifts, near the toilets!). Classy huh! 😁
Not being labelled ‘Garuda’ didn’t help at all, but after double-checking we were in the right place, we were soon settled into the Lounge, testing the comfy chairs. I say ‘Lounge’, it was more of a ‘Rabbit Hutch’! 🤔 Not the largest we’ve seen during our travels, but it had all the right ingredients – plenty to eat, drink, watch and read – and a very polite and smiley person on Reception.
So, after 12 hours on the first leg, we are now waiting for the second leg – Singapore to Jakarta, and then it’s the third leg of our adventure – Jakarta to Melbourne.
For both legs, we’re flying with Garuda – the Airline no-one’s heard of, but they’ve got a good track-record for travel with very competitive prices (but they’re not so good with Lounge signage!)
Then, just one more leg until Australia!
The lack of sleep is beginning to kick-in now. Ann’s ‘out for the count’ and I’m close!
Next news? When we get to Melbourne… Tara!
