Jenny Sheraton’s Travel Diary

Location: Lyon, France

MapI spent the day with Sophie's parents as both Sophie and Luc had to go to work. In the morning we took a walk to the park in Lyon and there is huge glass houses with plants from all over the world, big areas of gardens and grass and a zoo. I saw bears, elephants, giraffes, monkeys, deer and lots of turtles. All of this is only a 15 minute walk from Sophie's house.

We came back and had another big lunch. The french love their food. I'm just not used to eating this much.

At 3pm I walked to the taxi rank and caught a taxi to the bus station. I then caught the aeroport bus to Lyon airport. When I got there for my flight from Lyon to London the plane was an hour late and they weren't sure if I was going to make my connecting flight in London. Luckily the plane made up 30 minutes and all was good. It only took about 1 1/2 hours to fly from Lyon to London.

At London I had to go through security again and after rushing to my next flight it was also an hour late. I wandered around Heathrow for a while and we eventually took off at 11pm London time.

I got some sleep on this flight to Singapore although never enough. We landed in Singapore at 7pm local time after a 13 hour flight. I had a 3 hour lay over until my next flight to Brisbane. The next flight only took 7 hours although it was very windy in Brisbane when we were landing and it was pretty rough.

I finally arrived home at 6.30am Thursday. I lost Wednesday altogether. It is great to be home in Australia. Now time for some sleep.

Back to St George on Sunday.
