landing in singapore after 12 hour flight,
No sleep before travel day, excited like a kid before christmas, up early to once more being stuffed like a pig by my grandma.
then in the car and go go go go go go to the airport,
i awoke at 4am, with a gut feeling we had a problem with the tickets, then we sat for breakfast, jumped in the car for the airport, a couple of ambulances screamed past us. as the weather was so bad we started to worry we may miss our first flight, we arrived in time dumped the hire car, i jumped over the barrier( because my bladder was about to split and i was in headless chicken mode) in my new boots into waist deep wet snow, "congratulations, you now own the wettest boots and trousers in sweden"
trying to check in, but after doing it a million time in buisness, we turned into complete tourist idiots when its about holiday, going to the wrong gates, terminals and airports and countrys.. richard sweating like a pig, mumbling madly, something is wrong with the tickets, something is wrong with the tickets!!
any way we got finally to frankfurt,
lucky for us the bag we noticed laying in the middle of the runway was not ours, we had a long wait for the next flight to singapore which was also lucky as we spent the next 3 hrs competing in a orienteering mission to find out where we collected our boarding cards from and at one point nearly gave up and come home.
the flight was long and sweaty, and you loose all blood circulation in your butt sitting down that long, finally landing in singapore realizing our trip has started is great,, with zero energy and jet legged we take our first holiday step over the singapore border!
