The six hour wait in Singapore went relatively quickly, especially for Elfie and me as we were both coming to the end of very interesting books. Phil and I went "looking" for a new, updated Samsung Tablet, after the cracking of the screen incident. There are two later versions of mine, but they are ridiculous. One update doesn't even have a flash for the camera! And the camera is now located on the side, right where you hold the tablet to take photos. Lot of hand shots would be the result of that. They were both a bit thinner than my tablet but mine is thin enough for me. At least I have something to hold onto. Sorry - no sale!
We boarded on time, then taxied to the runway and there we sat and sat and sat, for at least 20 minutes while planes landed and took off - at least eight, if not more. Phil had watched half a movie before we were even in the air!
Our seats became flat, full length beds, so as soon as we took off, I snuggled down and went to sleep, after all, it was about 3.00 am Australian time. Phil slept quite a bit too but I woke up a few times during the night because it was cold, even under thd blanket.
Breakfast over, we landed in Brisbane at 9.45 am and breezed our way through Customs and Immigration, did some Duty Free shopping, called into the Transfer Desk and got our boarding passes for our flight to Canberra, all before Ingrid and Elfi appeared.
Kisses and hugs goodbye before they found their driver and we hopped on the transfer bus to the Domestic Terminal. Now having lunch in the Virgin lounge before our ĺast leg at 2.00 pm.
We arrived in Canberra at 4.30 pm, and our limo driver was waiting in the terminal for us, all dressed up in a suit and it was 42 degrees outside!! Half the garden is dead and the grass is brown and crunchy.
Now back into the routine of washing, ironing, cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping and work!
We had a great month away. Met some lovely people and saw some amazing things. Would highly recommend cruising the Irrawaddy and the Mekong, but only with Scenic, of course!
