The Journey

Singapore, Singapore

Every journey has its hurdles.. Our first hurdle was when Craig's brother Marc couldn't find his passport less than 24 hours before we were meant to fly out! After a full scale search of three different houses it was finally located and everyone breathed a big sigh of relief.. Marc needed to be there, what else are we going to feed the lions with!

Our second hurdle was it seemed no matter how hard we tried and how we packed our cases and the boxes of donated sports equipment we could not get everything in and come close to our weight limit. Thanks to Craig's parents who came to the rescue and packed the extra stuff.

The third hurdle was when our luggage still came in heavier than what we were allowed. We all had our fingers crossed that the person checking our luggage in was compassionate to our cause and would let it go through. Our crossed fingers did the trick and there was no extra charge.

We were finally on our way! The flight to Singapore was a dream flight, not many people on the plane so we were able to spread out. The stopover at Changi airport went relatively quickly with a visit to the Butterfly Garden and a quick bite to eat. The second leg of the journey we were not quite as lucky, with the flight being packed! Corrine had her knee caps almost shattered when the man in front could not work out his chair and rammed it back.. This was even before takeoff. It was a long flight.

We eventually made it to our destination after one of the longest journeys that either of us have ever taken. We were rewarded with the beautiful scene that is Cape Town and with renewed energy we all looked forward to what laid ahead of us!
