We added Singapore to the end of our itinerary to cut the flying time home in half and hopefully get any major jet lag out of our systems before arriving home. Let's hope it works lol. We've therefore had a pretty cruisey time here involving a little sight seeing and a little recuperating.
Our first day in town was Singapore's National Holiday to mark the end of Ramadan (a month of fasting and prayer for Muslims) and boy was it busy! We've mastered travelling on the trains and have found them to be an easy and efficient way to get around. The new Marina Bay Sands Luxury Shopping Centre is impressive (bar the toilets) and a wander along Orchard Rd is a must. Obviously Singaporeans (and their visitors) love to shop - there are more shops here than anywhere else we've been. Singapore Slings were also enjoyed at the iconic Raffles Hotel - the perfect refreshment for a steamy Singers afternoon.
Sadly that brings our jet-setting to an end (for now) as we fly home Wednesday evening and will be back in our own homes by mid-afternoon Thursday. It will be awesome to give the kids a big cuddle:) How on earth will we adjust to life back in the real world after 7 weeks of tremendous travels? Who knows but it must be done - how else will we save for the next trip:) Thanks for reading ...bye for now. xxLinda, Bruce, Chris and Ang.
