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!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
