Hope all is well back home just thought we would write on our blog to let you know how our adventure has began...........
After an emotional goodbye at Heathrow on Friday evening we finally arrived in Singapore at around 6pm Saturday. The flight was good and we got lots of freebees!(get what you can!!)No vegetarian meal though Megan i had to wait for breakfast for her cereal and fruit but Leannes meals didnt touch the sides(not bad for someone who WASNT hungry!!)There was lots of films to watch and games to play and we had a sleep with a nice comfy pillow. We landed in Singapore collected our bags and decided how we were going to get to the hostel. As its the start of our trip and we still have money we decided to take a taxi. East peesy.........or maybe not!!The taximans broken english amused us but he couldnt understand where we wanted to go or what we were saying!So whilst driving around he passed us a map and asked us to look for the street name,much to our amusment the maps werent in english,it was at this point we thought it might of been easlier to get the bus!!!!(talk about chucking us in at the deep end!!)After lots of confused looks the taximan finally got us to the hostel and knocked about $20 off because he took us the wrong way at the start of the journey which was very kind of him.
Our hostel is very nice,funky and friendy. Quite small but close to restaurants and shops.So this evening we plonked our backpacks down and headed off to get our bearings. There are alot of restaurants near by but somehow i dont think we will be eatting in them. We dont fancy pig organ soup or pig stomach curry!!But we did find a nice Mall with a supermarket so we got some fresh bread and peanut butter for breakfast which is abit more up our street!!(not forgetting the mushroom noodles to fit in with the culture!!)
The weather is very humid and even at 10pm its still hot but our room has A/C so we should sleep well tonight.It wil be nice to get in a bed rather than trying to sleep sitting up on the plane.
We will write again soon
Take care everyone
Love you all very much xxxx
