Started to rain as we left for the airport.

We were so uptight about DVT even Gerard was bouncing his legs around during the flight. The stop in Darwin was much welcomed. The flight felt like it went forever and it was only to Singapore. First night we stayed in Little India at ‘The Mitraa’ hostel. Very friendly and pretty convenient to the train station. Boy it was humid. It was weird going to bed not knowing what the other people in the room looked like or how many there were.

One Day To Go

View The long trip! on wheretonow's travel map.

After a night of all packing/organising and no sleep mum puts onto the train back to Melbourne. For once I was glad the trip was three hours long and disjointedly slept all I could. Still relieved at getting our passports back on Friday from the US Consulate, today we were thrown into another mini frenzie when the travel insurance company came back and told us, I was not going to be covered for DVT. As we were going to get 3 months free cover with these guys ad no time left to organise another company, we vowed we were going to be the annoying ones on flights always up and out of our seats on every flight and run with it.

We had one last small catchup with my bosom buddies, I’ll miss them dearly.

After being out on the sauce it was home (well Adrian’s pad) to bed, final packing can wait.
