Visiting friends in Singapore and a quick pit stop in Hong Kong
22.05.2009 - 09.05.2009 33 °C
Singapore was mainly about catching up with friends. We had a great time with Angelica and Jeff, who are getting ready for their first baby boy later this year. After the northern hemisphere winter, it was a bit of a shock to be back in the heat and humidity of Singapore, but we still made the most of our couple of days, dropping by the Botanical Gardens, drinks at Clarke Quay with dinners at dapaidongs and the Yacht Club - even squeezing in a gym workout! We also had a pleasant surprise catching up with our Shanghai friend, Molly Padgett, who was coincidentally living in the same complex as Angelica and Jeff.
Back in HK we were hosted by Katie and Murray while we sorted out the final stage of our round the world odessey - China, Mongolia and Nepal. This also meant lots of time with their dog, Brandy, running her up and down the Peak until she wore me out!
This completes our round the world trip ticket. Below is a map of all the places we visited in the last 4 months.
