Suse & Mick’s Travel Diary

Wednesday, 26 Jul 2006

Location: Singapore, Singapore

MapHello everyone,

Here we are in Singapore, we arrived yesterday evening from London, it was a great flight with Qantas, only 12 hours and very quick and comfortable. It was great to fly with Qantas after so many discount airline flights!!!

We stayed here last night, we headed to the Raffles hotel for the obligatory Singapore Sling, and then to China Town for dinner.

This morning we walked Orchard Road and then did a sightseeing bus tour before a quick bite for lunch (again at China Town - our hotel was nearby!) and then we were on the train out to the airport.

We are now waiting for our flight to Bangkok which leaves soon. We have 4 nights there before we come back to Singapore for our flight to Sydney on Monday.

Our weekend in Paris with Bec and Rog for the end of the Tour de France was great fun. We took it easy and wandered the streets and markets of Paris. We lined the Champs Elysee on Sunday and got a glimpse of the riders as they did 8 laps of the street in the final leg of the Tour. It was all very exciting!

It was a bit sad to leave Europe after 10 months over there...still plenty of shopping to be done in Bangkok though! We may need to purchase an extra bag as our carry on cases and back packs are chockers. We did well to fit everything in!!!

Anyway my free internet here at the gate lounge is about to run out so I must dash...

Hope all is well and I will try and write again before we get home. Only 5 more days to go! Very exciting.

Till next time,

Suse

PS will try and get pix up soon but that may have to wait till we are home.
