Day 11 - Rome to Singapore

Down to the dining room for a last breakfast in Rome and it was great to catch up with a few of the crew again! At 8am Flavio took Robert, Arnick, Grant and I to the airport. We ably negotiated check in, security, passport control, the train to the gate, duty free shopping and even caught up with Irene and Bill again just before we departed! 

Onto the flight with grandiose plans of sleeping all the way.... Not a chance.... Sleep eludes me! Movie watching, blogging and eating broke the trip up and at 11.30 pm as we flew over Delhi at 12,000 metres I was shocked to receive a stunning birthday cake and 2 glasses of champagne! WOW what a surprise! The lovely hostess asked me who it was from.. I can only assume the wonderful Jenny  organised this as well! How overwhelming and how incredibly special! This was followed up nicely with a Singapore sling... Agh MAGIC... but one hour to go on a 12 and a half hour flight and sleep still eludes me! 

We arrive into Singapore at 5.30am and I am guessing we can't check into our hotel til 2pm so this could well be a very long day.... 
Well how wrong could I be? We got the shuttle to the hotel and arrived at 7.30am and they took be look at us and said we could check in then to get some sleep.... Bliss.... Three hours of slee then we were upgraded to a suite on the top floor... Very impressed with this service...
All settled into room then took courtesy coach into the heart of the city - a mere 15 minutes away -  and we had a wonderful walk around the mall and orchard road! Absolutely overwhlemed by the heat and the humidity... Back to the hotel for dinner and drinks... Day one in Singapore - awesome!
