    Back to the UK

    March 8, 2020 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    Said our tearful goodbyes to Lisa and Dave and took the short 55 minute flight to Sydney. Had a couple of drinks in the airport and then off on the next stage of our journey to Singapore. Had a decent flight, good leg room and as the flight was not full we had three seats between the two of us. Arrived at a quiet Singapore Airport and with only about an hour turnaround. We just about had enough time for a drink and a quick freshen up. Back on the plane for the final 13.5 hr journey back to Heathrow. Flight had a few more people on this time but Ali sat next to an interesting guy who was just returning from having been on tour with Elton John as one of his Chefs. Time went quickly and before we knew it we were back in the UK in the back of Paul's car on our way to Bridgend. The final 1.25hr drive seemed very short given the distances we had travelled over the last 5 weeks. Tried to stay up as long as possible but by 6.30 we gave in and crashed into bed. The final act of an amazing 5 weeks.Read more

    Last day in Oz

    March 4, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 7 °C

    Sadly our last day of a fantastic month. Checked with Paul and all OK weather wise back home. Dave woke up to a bit of a work crisis but this was soon under control and we could start our final day. Took the tram to Pyrmont and took ferry to Luna Park an old 50's style fun fair. Walked past that on the boardwalk to Mrs Whitelys Garden.Mrs Whitely was the wife of an artist and in her younger days had quite a hedonistic existence. In later years she started cultivating the land outside her house. This belonged to the railway and over the years she has been allowed to continue her work to the extent that the gardens are now an established part of the Sydney experience. We had some lunch and then back to the flat to prepare for the long journey home. Said our tearful farewells at the airport and then through to departures. Not quite sure how we will cope with life after Oz so had a few drinks to numb the pain before boarding the big bird to Singapore and then onward to London. In the words of the great Soul II Soul "Back to life, back to reality !!!"Read more
