Holiday: Return to Oz – Day 2 (of 18): Singapore to Melbourne via Jakarta

Reading time: < 1 minutes...

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!

Well obviously, this is the Garuda Lounge! πŸ€” How silly of us!

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!
