“Not sure where I am”

Rest of day 60, Heathrow, 26 May 2009
The first leg is from Heathrow to Singapore – about 13 hours in the air. It’s the new Airbus A380 and I’m sitting on the upper deck at the very rear (just near the spiral staircase). The plane is only half full as I’m told it’s because of the long weekend in London. It would have to be the nicest plane in the air - it’s extremely quiet, it’s very smooth and the personal entertainment unit is fantastic. This unit had 112 movies, 100s of TV shows, documentaries, educational programs, travel guides, games, a telephone, and so much more – as I said FANTASTIC for this long trip.
Day 61, 27 May 2009
It’s still night when we arrive at Singapore and I’ve lost a day.
The next leg from Singapore to Brisbane was on the smaller new Airbus, an A330. Much smaller, very loud and rough, but the exact same entertainment unit. And just under 8 hours in the air, so it didn’t matter that I got little rest – I’ll be home soon.
Day 62, “Home”, 28 May 2009
It’s 8:30am as I step into my home in Brisbane. It’s day 62; over 20 countries; 38 ports; what an adventure!
