travel thoughts...  
Notes to self: travel related things to think about...

- One way ticket vs round-the-world ticket, and which airline (am considering Singapore airlines right now, after reading & hearing some great reviews about them. I flew Malaysian Airlines last time who were fine, but I want to try another airline, just for comparison)
- A couple of nights stopover somewhere on way to London? (eg, Singapore?)
- Europe tour upon first arriving in the UK - Top Deck tour most likely, but not sure which one (either 18 days or 25 days, as the 21 day cabin tour involves 5 days sailing... and guess who gets seasick? *coughs*)
- Laptop purchase - via Dad so will be much cheaper (yay!)
- Accomodation in the UK/work transfer or temp position = all pending and continuous


I am so restless to travel again. Like you wouldn't believe.
Actually, I think you would believe it. I think quite a few of you have wanderlust too.

goodnight, stars.

i'll do a little promotion for my own country and say, "FLY BY SINGAPORE AIRLINES!" ;) but i do like the airline, really.

I just have to decide now whether to do a stopover in Singapore for a few days or not now ^^ oh, decisions, decisions!

I've flown long haul using Singapore. You cannot fault them, fantastic. They tend to be a little pricier than the rest, so keep an eye out for sales. Best Flights are good, just find a local travel agent who will price match.

ooh, price match, now there's a good idea.
I am definitely leaning towards Singapore Airlines. They are about $ 100 more expensive that Qantas, but from all the good reviews I've been reading, it seems worth it for sure. Especially for a 23 hour flight ^^

I've loved reading of your Tori tales so much that tonight I'm going to try and get a pair of tickets to see her in London next weekend

I won the ones I wanted and am now awaiting a final total because I requested that they be sent recorded delivery because of today being a Bank Holiday and post may be delayed. If I don't get one by the afternoon I think I may just add extra onto the total and be done.
