Traveling but more exciting- Arriving!Posted by Jake Woodnutt on Thu 20th Feb 2014 @ 6:51 am
From the storms of force 10 winds and snow in the UK to 35 degrees+. I left Alderney on the 6th February. Was worrying for days that my flight from Alderney to Southampton would be delayed and miss my connecting flight to Dublin. Rather jumping on an earlier flight I decided to risk it on the day. There was only a small window of opportunity when the wind dropped enough that the flight managed to take off. I arrived in Dublin in the evening and very much enjoyed my 10 days there, although I had the heat of Australia to look forward to, I didn't really want to leave. Was very cold in Dublin though! I had only really packed shorts and t-shirts for Australia and it started snowing! Got some very weird looks when walking to the shop in shorts as the snow was settling.
I arrived in London at about 8pm and sat up all night drinking coffee and watching films getting myself in Aussie time to prevent jet lag... Was so tired when my flight came around at 10am that I slept for most of the 12 hour flight to Singapore. I stayed in Singapore for 2 hours before jumping on my next flight (5 hours) to Perth. A good friend of mine, Meggie picked me up from the airport and had a very chilled evening with a BBQ.
In the morning we both went into town for a coffee and cake. I have always heard that the Aussies make the best coffee, I have only had one and it was seriously good!
Went down to the beach today for a drink, beautiful sight of white sands and blue water. Sand so hot sometimes you have to run to the water to prevent your feet burning- Love it!
Singapore Airlines plane, Great airline!
This cafe makes amazing coffee! and Cake!
My first Australian Beach. White sand and blue water... And Probably sharks..
What an awesome sight.
