So, off we went. Checking out of the Shangri-La, and off to Changi Airport. Checked in fine, although our check in agent was one of those who had elected to wear a mask because of this Coronavirus problem. That’s ok, I respect that, but you can’t then hear what they’re saying to you – after what seemed like the 43rd “excuse me but I didn’t hear”, we got our boarding passes, headed through passport control and off to the lounge.
The flight itself was uneventful, left on time, arrived early etc. I like Singapore Airlines as they seem to have found the optimum of “attentive but not intrusive” service in the cabin, and they don’t disappear into the crew rest areas for lengthy periods of time – there’s always someone around. It’s just about a 6hr 30m flight from Singapore to Adelaide, so long enough for a nap at least. The A350 is a pretty nice aircraft as a passenger. I liked it.
We landed in the morning in Adelaide, and it was pretty efficient getting through passports, getting luggage, and then customs, and we were soon at our hotel. We are staying at the Mayfair Hotel in central Adelaide. Nice hotel.
Nice welcome, efficient check in. Strange as it is, this is a photo of our actual room on the booking.com website:
The woman in the photo is ok, but we had to ask her to keep the noise down once or twice.
We had a quick bite for breakfast in the hotel, an (extended) nap, then headed out for a stroll, but of shopping etc. Nice place with lots going on.
Headed back to the hotel, bite to eat and an early night. I think we are getting on top of the time difference now, just in time for our train ride.
