30 September 2015: Being unwell, we didn’t get to see any of Singapore except the road between airport and hotel.
I relive last year’s fantastic holiday by bringing posts over from the trip blog. This doesn’t aim to be identical to the trip blog, but an improvement, with text edits and more / better photos. Find all these posts under the tag: Spain2015.
We stayed at the Changi Village Hotel in Singapore, which is fairly flash. I’d had a decent amount of sleep on the plane from Zurich, luckily.
We had dinner last night at the hotel then went straight to bed. I slept for the better part of 10 hours or so. Then we got up for the breakfast we’d paid for, though neither of us could really eat. We both feel pretty blah still.
Luckily we had the room until 3 pm, then we were advised to get the 3.30 shuttle back to the airport for the 9.5 hour flight to Christchurch. It’ll be good to get home to Wellington.
Now we’re waiting to board at Terminal 3. This airport has everything, including easy chairs, free movies, free foot massage, electronic gizmos all over and even a butterfly garden.
Deb reckons she could live here.
Afterword: After a couple of hours at Christchurch Airport we caught the plane home, glad to be back on home ground. It took a few days for the effects of all the travelling, and the tummy bug, to wear off.
The holiday stayed with me for a very long time. It was certainly the best holiday I’ve ever had. Every day was a delight and brought new joys, even if they were harder to appreciate at the very end when we were tired and unwell.
That was my third, and longest, trip to Spain which I seem to enjoy more each time I visit. I guess it’s unlikely I’ll ever return, but you never know…
