I arrived at 2pm yesterday to Singapore and went straight to Aaron and Johonna's place. Jo and I caught up for a few hours and took a dip in the pool. Later in the evening, we went out for dinner and drinks with Aaron's parents Steve and Ellen, who are also in town and very kindly taking back a massive bag for me, and some friends. Felt like I was back home!
Today, Jo and I finally made it to Buket Timah nature preserve and despite the heat, we did some serious hiking for a few hours. I just got back from a quick run to the local Coffee Bean (ah, an ice blended!...see, just like home!) and am starting to pack for London and Greece. We're having dinner tonight and then I am off to London with British Airways at 10:40pm. I love it--all flights from Singapore are "international" (of course!).
I am sad for my Asia adventures to be coming to a close. Despite some occasional challenges and being lonely at times, my trip was amazing. I met some great people along the way and saw many places that are going to be changing a lot in the coming years. I definitely hope to come back at some point. I'm excited to meet up with friends and family in London and to travel with my sister-in-law Erin in Greece! I can't wait. And I am most certainly looking forward to some cooler and less humid weather!
Bon voyage Asia...
