Flag of Switzerland  , Zürich,
Friday, January 29, 2010

On Friday morning we had to get up at 4.30 AM in order to catch our flight with Singapore Airlines from Perth to Singapore. Flying time was four hours and 40 minutes. The morning flight was almost empty so there was enough space to spread in the A330-300. We arrived in time in Singapore and switched to our connecting flight. To our surprise there was another security control right at the gate in Singapore. Once they checked our bags which were already screened once in Australia, they opened Carol's hand luggage and told her that she was carrying two souvenir Boomerangs which were considered as an illegal object since it could be used as a weapon. At least they seemed to be very well prepared for such cases so what they did is they took the dangerous items and checked it in and they could be collected easily again at the lost and found counter in the country of your destination.

So after only one hour in Singapore we had another 13 hours and 20 minutes to fly to Zurich. It was a day flight with a Boeing-777-300ER from Singapore Airlines. The flight was very smooth and the service on board of Singapore Airlines was very friendly and good as usual. The approach in Zurich at 8.15 PM local time was a bit scary as it was snowing and you couldn't see anything except for the snow flakes flying by left and right of the aircraft horizontally. When we were less than 2000 meters above the ground you could finally see some lights and houses and a big white blanket covering the surface.

At the airport my brother Christian, auntie Helen and my cousin Sherin were already awaiting us and brought us home to our house in Embrach. Since we were already awake for 24 hours we were quite tired and decided to go to sleep soon. Finally, after 6 month traveling and studying in Hong Kong, I'm back home again and it felt a bit strange after being abroad for such a long period. I still have the whole weekend ahead of me to reflect all those great memories before I have to go back to work again on Monday morning. This is my last entry and concludes my blog. You will hear from me again on my next journey sometime in the near future. I would like to thank all of you for keep on visiting my blog and encouraging me to update it on a regular basis. Thank you for your nice feedback and everything.
