Next leg

Flight and Singapore

Singapore airlines were really good. Extra legroom in Premium Economy was great. Food was really good. Really comfortable. After 7 hrs. I was beginning to get a little bored and tired. I did have a sleep but don’t think it was that long. Luggage was one of the first to come out as we were priority and it worked well. Worth the extra money. Met by a guy in really lux car. Showed us the sights on the way to hotel. Tired but had to keep going. Singapore is absolutely fabulous. So much going on. Really vibrant City. We are very lucky that a Light to Night Festival is going on at the moment. Spectacular light shows everywhere and live misic in most bars. It is a stunning City. Went on the Singapore Flyer, like the London Eye at night with lights everywhere, fab. Everything’s a.ive and it’s almost midnight. Time for us old folk to retire to bed. PS. Weather absolutely glorious.

Clayton Hotel, Manchester

The Start

Here for the night. Car dropped off at Airport. Just getting warm again. It’s freezing out. Planes out of Manchester were delayed today due to the fog. Hoping it won’t happen tomorrow. Shuttle booked for 7.45am. Will have breakfast at the airport. It will kill time, along with looking around the duty free of course.

Just having a ‘warming up’ G&T or two!!

Meal really nice.

Just a word on our room. When we stayed before we have been to the right of reception. This time we went left to the lifts which were in a really cold area. Our room was nice with all amenities needed. However when it came to the morning after I showered, I tried to dry my hair. The hairdryer did not work. We tried to ring reception but the phone lead kept coming away, so we could not ask for another dryer. It was quite a trek to reception and time was limited before we caught the shuttle to the airport, so Spencer used his mobile to ring reception. They were very prompt in bringing another dryer and apologising. We have since heard from them and they have compensated us. Can’t grumble at that. Would definitely stay here again but I would check that everything was in working order first.
