Off on our big tour, first stop Singapore
We are off on our tour, it started early on Monday morning taking Porsche our dear little Burmese cat to the cattery in Blenheim, then we came back to Picton caught the Ferry to Wellington and in time the flight to Auckland and then at midnight caught the plane to Singapore a full 10 hour flight which fortunately we did grab a little sleep. We were only in transit for a few hours then back on the plane to Hanoi in Vietnam. Took these photos in Singapore. the airport is so beautiful just full of flowers, mainly beautiful Orchids.
As we went through Auckland Airport we looked around to see if anyone else was carrying APT backpacks that we have all been given for going on this tour. We quickly spotted 2 ladies and made ourselves known to Dorothy and Winnifred and I could tell we would get on well they both had a nice
in their eyes... fun people, we travelled together from then on.. And in Auckland we also found 2 men also in the team. Singapore was only a transit stop and soon we were on our way to Hanoi Vietnam.
