I woke up a little bit late, well a little bit too early for my parents but I got up and went to look if my cousin Kaia was still in bed or getting ready for school, she was getting ready for her ''Big Girl School'' or as I would call it UWCSEA primary school!so i got up and she was having her breakfast already so I joined in with having breakie and got changed. We really did nothing so the photos are a recap on what we did before we left and JEWEL at the airport. Just after getting dropped of at the airport we watched the light show then realised we had to half rush to get to gate K13. After the 12hr flight to Germany we had a transfer flight strait to France ... read more

On our 2nd day at Singapore we got up early and went for a quick swim with my cousins in the 34 degree weather because we were going to Sentosa Island! When we had driven to the island I found out that we couldn't swim in the ocean thanks to an oil spill and their water park was closed we all thought we were going to die of the weather! but we didn't thankfully. my Aunty and uncle were part of a club that had a one side glass pool so we went there. After that my cousins, aunty and uncle went back to their house for a swim an we caught a taxi back to the place on sentosa with the oil spill and me, my brother and my mum did the zip line over ... read more

It seems we have been planning the BBA-V4 for ages and that we would never get it underway. But today was D-Day and the Great South African Adventure is on its way. A typical, beautiful, sunny morning greeted us after less sleep than usual as we woke early in anticipation of the day ahead. Our daughter Erin with grandson Brayden arrived ahead of time and we loaded up and headed for Tauranga airport and the first flight of the day, a short 25 minute hop to Auckland. After a tearful goodbye it was time to board and let the all women crew wing us to Auckland. It is a well marked walking route between the Domestic and International terminals at Auckland. The green line twisted and turned with most of the route under at least half ... read more

It is a typical "love-hate" relationship. I love arriving at the airport, in anticipation of leaving, on time, on a nice flight, to a place I really want to visit. I hate the flights with delays, bad food, rough flights, noisy seat mates, and uncomfortable seats. As for the airport itself, some are better than others. When I was a little boy, I fondly recall driving up to SFO with my Dad. We were picking up my grandmother, coming back from a trip to her homeland, in Japan. It was the most exciting event in my life, up to that point. Why? Because I imagined that it was me coming back from a far away land. I was probably 7 or 8 years old at the time. Maybe that was the moment I decided to become ... read more

Can you believe a U.S. based airline is encouraging tips for their flight attendants? And the tips go directly to attendant who takes them? For many years, I hear Frontier Airlines, the ultra low cost, no frills airline has a tipping option on their payment tablets. Over the years, I have given small tokens of appreciation. But I do not give them based on what I receive. I base them on how friendly or helpful the flight attendant might be. The tokens could range from fresh fruit (illegal in most cases), candy, homemade baked goods, or small trinkets. But money? My first thought is that tipping would encourage flight attendants to give things away, in hopes of getting bigger tips. Perhaps that bottomless glass of champagne might warrant a $5 or $10 tip! Or perhaps slipping ... read more

If it was not Sunday when we arrived in Dubai (I think it was, just) it was definitely Sunday (local time) when we departed Dubai at 2.40am Unlike on our journey over we were not able to walk from our arrival gate to our departure gate, we needed to take the train between terminals. Even after the time spent travelling between terminals we were able to spend a little bit of time in the Emirates Lounge. We took the opportunity to drink plenty of free mineral water and walk around a bit before facing up to the longest sector of our journey, the 13’15” leg from Dubai to Melbourne. During the night? I’m not really sure that it actually was night because we were flying towards the sun, but all the shutters were down and the ... read more

Tuesday 6th February 2018 Awake at just after 7am feeling refreshed after yesterday’s marathon around Singapore. Just so much to see and do. Sarah went off to put the laundry in the machine.....leaves less to sort when we get home. Then it was showered and dressed and off out again. Today will be a day at Singapore Zoo.......we don’t usually visit a zoo but this one is world famous for the way it’s set up, the research they are involved in and the way the animals are treated and looked after. Firstly we called in at the money changers at Little India and then headed out of the city on the MRT to Ang Mo Kio, then it was hop onto the number 73 bus which takes you to the front door of the Zoo.

Friday 2nd February 2018 Awake a little earlier today to finish off the packing and enjoy a leisurely breakfast before we head off to Da Nang airport for the next and final leg of our south east Asia adventure. We have loved our time in Hoi An on this our second visit. It’s a place that has so much to see and do with a beautiful old town, great countryside and a nice beach not far away. We will be sad to say goodbye to this special place. Also we will be sad to leave the Camellia Homesta, it’s been a perfect place for us. A family who really do care for their guests and want them to enjoy their hospitality. The rooms are big, facilities great and the breakfasts are huge with a great selection ... read more
