Flag of United Kingdom  , England,
Thursday, January 26, 2012

It was a bit emotional leaving England yesterday.  Saying goodbye to everyone and heading off for 4months, whilst only having 4hours sleep the night before was a weird experience. 

Checkout the nice leaving cards I got:

My first hour in the airport felt a bit strange but after I went through security I felt excited again.  I even purchased a bottle of martel for the flight (lol)




As I sat down in seat 85D (made of carbon fibre!) I couldn't help but smile as everything was ticked off and I was about to fly out.  I didn't want to be anywhere else.


The flight was good.  The A380 is amazingly, you don't even feel like your ascending or descending, except the pressure in your ears.  They have a camera mounted on the tail so you can actually watch take off on your personal screen in front of you.   



Quantas know how to look after you.  Free alcohol,  3 course meal for dinner and breakfast, free snacks and soft drinks, and endless films/tv shows/documentaries to watch.


Check out the Skycam when landing in Singapore.  The first pic has hundreds of container ships, never seen anything like it.


Checked into my hostel, its nice, free wifi and nice and clean.  In my dorm room there are 2 guys from Korea, 1 guy from China and 1 lady from Switzerland who is a travel writer.  The hostel is over 2 floors and they ask everyone to take shoes off at the lift, lol

Been out for a beer to watch the last set of the murray vs djokovic match.  Looked like a great game, shame murray lost tho.

Off to bed soon.. tired zzzz
