A Taste of Things to Come

13 weeks and counting . . . .

It is now only 13 weeks until we go off on our travels. Our first night away will be in a hotel near Heathrow, so that we can be ready to catch our plane with plenty of time to spare the following morning. Our first flight will take us to Singapore. Once there we have splashed out a bit and have gone for a room with a view of the Marina Bay. This is not a cheap option but we wanted to start and end our travels with a liitle bit of luxury. This choice also fits in with my philosophy for city hotels, which is to go for a more expensive room in a mid-range hotel rather than a cheap room in an expensive hotel. This tends to ensure upper floors with good views.

I gave also been doing some research on things to do and places to visit. On the list so far is the Singapore Flyer (a bit like the London Eye), the Marina Sands Observation deck ( for more great views) and at the top is a visit to the Gardens by the Bay with its amazing vegetation and incredible tree like installations. We might also book a tour which includes afternoon tea at Raffles, just to get a feel of Singapore's colonial past.

Just thinking about a first few days away is getting me excited, a feeling that I guess will only increase as the weeks go by.
