Well I'd better get used to this travel blog thing; I'll try to update it at least once a week but don't hold your breath.
We left Adelaide at 1:05 pm on a very wet July day. The service on Quantas is good, we had two meals (lunch was Chicken and Tofu in a Ginger and Soy Sauce.) We were also offered various drinks, cheese and crackers, chocolate and ice cream. They all looked low GI to me so I ate them. There was also a great selection of movies, TV, music, and news. I watched Clint Eastwood in Grand Tourismo, Fawlty Towers, and bits of various other movies. It was a channel surfer's paradise.
The flight map showed various trip data, so for data buffs we travelled at around 900kph at 11,582 metres in an Airbus A330. The outside temp was -59 degrees Farenheidt.
Singapore is 30 degrees Celsius (sorry about the mixed units) and humid, so the jumpers came off straight away. Changi Airport is huge, and has 3 terminals now, unlike 2001 when I was last here. To get to the different terminals (we have 5 hours to kill) we used the free Skytrain. There are a lot of people waiting around, and I can't help but think that a huge shopping industry has been built by forcing people to wait several hours for planes. There is free internet access everywhere, and plenty of things to see and do, eg the Butterfly House. I won't eat anything as we get fed too well on the plane.
Anyway, this is enough typing on this miniature keyboard, so I'll leave it here and hopefully won't be too long before my next entry. I'll start loading on a few photos soon; I don't have my cable with me at the moment.
