How are you?
Welcome to the blog and Five on Friday, the link up organised by Tricky and Carly on their FAST blog.
First of all, I wanted to thank you for all your recent messages, rest assured I have read them all but haven't replied as I have been away for the last month, so my apologies for less comments on your blogs and fewer replies from me over that time.
We've had an exciting time in Perth, Western Australia and I'm now armed with lots of photos to share with you once I get organised.
Do you like flying? In a plane.
I've not done a lot myself and yet it has become second nature to most people. The trouble is the leap between watching those tiny silver planes in the sky with the bus/train-like place you sit in.
One - At the Airport
With a couple of hours to wait, there's plenty to see at the airport.
Two - On the plane
Choose a bag that will fit under the seat in front rather than the overhead lockers as you'll have everything to hand. Wear comfortable clothing and a warm fleece; change your shoes for some comfy, warm slippers to wear over your special flight socks from the chemist to prevent DVT (deep vein thrombosis); plug headphones plus jacks into the entertainment system; carry an empty plastic bottle to fill up with water on the plane. Books and puzzles at the ready. Relax. You are ready to take off.
Three - Clouds
Out of the window, clouds as big as mountains fill the sky.
Four - Food
With over 18 hours in the air, the food arrives regularly in a well organised fashion.
Five - Changing planes
Changi Airport in Singapore is full of gardens and well worth an explore.
There's the orchid garden.
The sunflower garden is outside in the humid heat.
There's an enchanted garden
as well as a cactus garden and even a butterfly garden which both looked spectacular even at midnight, more so during the day, no doubt.
In fact, there are gardens everywhere.
Wishing you all a great weekend.
