Blogging at Changi Airport
I have arrived at the airport and checked in more than 2 hours before my flight time.
Uncharacteristically if I may add, having since developed the very efficient habit of arriving at the airport JIT for check-in and to gate from many years of business travel. (what romance of travel?)
BUT I am on holiday now, plus I wanted to beat the 50% midnight surcharge.
T2 is quiet and all the shops at the public access areas are closed. There is no queue anywhere, even SQ check-in counters at row 9 is closed. There is no queue at the free internet kiosks too.
I will be joining E in USA to visit New York and San Francisco.
Some of the things I'm looking forward to are:
New York : A run in Central Park, Avenue Q Broadway Show, Times Square, Greenwich, Metropolitan Musuem, Ground Zero
San Francisco : Alcartraz, Fisherman's wharf, China Town, Good Food
And most of all, time with E. :oBut I'm not relishing the 1st leg of my travel which will take me 35 hours and 5 airports to get to the first destination. GULP*
I've come prepared, surviving on little sleep over the last few nights (so that maybe, just maybe, I'll catch some on the plane), and little food so that I will adjust to the new time zone by eating well there.
Dear Friends, wish me safe and fun travel. And you take care till my next blog.
