Day 23 : Sunday 27th March 2005

Homeward bound

Today was the day I knew would come, but really didn't want. The end of three fantastic weeks of holiday in some of my favourite places in the world. I had thoroughly enjoyed my time away, everywhere I had been and would come back at the drop of a hat. But today, as always must be, it was time to go home.

We arose late and checked out of the hotel. A lovely breakfast on Darling Harbour and a gentle walk followed, soaking up those last few rays of beautiful Australian sunshine. Then it really was time to get going. We got a taxi and I dropped my friend off at Hyde Park (near to the hostel she had booked for her next few nights in Sydney) and then I was off to the airport for my flights home.

Singapore airport was fairly bustling at this time, but, well, Singapore airport never really feels bustly! I spent 15 mins on the free internet and then used the Premier Lounge to grab some water and a coke. But soon it was time to head off to the gate for my flight to London.

And that was it, the end of my dream holiday. What a fantastic time I had, I would love to come back to NZ and there is certainly another itinerary that I could do to visit the places I missed out on. And I'm sure in the not-to-distant future I shall be back down under!
