Konnichiwa from Japan

Hello from Japan! I made it! I’m tired! lol As a reminder… 1 hour flight from Singapore last night at 9:20pm to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and then a 6.5 hour flight from Kuala Lumpur to Tokyo, Japan. Got in this morning around 7:30am, customs was about a 20 – 30 minute wait (I hate these…



The Singapore Airport RULES!

It’s just about 8pm here, flight leaves at 9:20pm, I can’t get into the gate until 8:20pm… this was a bit new for me, they do all the security checks right at the gate! So you get into the departure lounge by showing your ticket, but then they don’t do the security check until you…



Last day in Singapore…

Good evening! It’s almost 10pm here, and unfortunately my last night in Singapore is spent in my hostel… it started pouring so wandering the city isn’t too much fun right now, but I also had a busy day, and need to prepare for Japan, so I’m not too disappointed. I was weighing going to Universal…



I found a Beavertail!

Of course, there’s lots to tell you about Singapore – I’m having a great time, love the city, at night it’s so alive and amazing, etc, etc. But first I need to say – I found a beavertail here! For those of you who don’t know, it’s a delicious pastry that is found in a bunch…



Welcome to Singapore!

Hello from Singapore! I have to say, we are off to a much better start here. I’m quickly falling in love with Singapore and I’ve only been here 12 hours or so. We last talked in the airport, not too long ago, on the way here. The flight was fine – I don’t know how I…



Waiting for a jet plane

Good <insert appropriate salutation here>! I am currently sitting in the lovely uncomfortable chairs of the Malaysia Kuala Lumpur LCCT airport, listening to extremely irritating announcements by people who do not know how to properly operate a microphone. 🙂 I’m not actually as irritated as I sound, but it is kinda annoying. Anyway, I checked…



Goooood morning world

Well world isn’t accurate. It’s not even morning here. But it’s morning at home, so that’s what I’ve been saying to everyone as I wake them up with iMessages :p Except my brother. Who does not have an iPhone. So I can’t bug him quite as easily. Which is most likely why he doesn’t have…



Day 2… Getting settled…

Day two in Malaysia… took it pretty slow today. It basically poured all morning – really nice and warm, but very wet. I went for a walk around to try to get my bearings, but I’m finding it really challenging here to figure out where I am! It’s such a busy city, near impossible to…



Today sucks… but I made it

Today sucks. Up at 6:30am, left the hostel in Melbourne at 7:30am, got to the airport by 8am, hung around there for a couple hours until my flight at 10:30am. Uneventful flight, though I wouldn’t fly Air Asia again for a long flight… small seats, no entertainment, no free food or drink at all… yeah….



What’s next?!

And we’re back to that age old question… What’s Next?! Over the last three days Shauna’s family took me on a beautiful tour of the Great Ocean Road here in Victoria, Australia… as you might imagine, it was basically a drive along the ocean :p It was a terrific drive – we left Thursday morning…
