The time difference between Sydney and San Jose makes it really difficult for us to talk regularly, but we're trying to make the most of it. It's pretty lonely here, but at least I have the dogs. Thank goodness for Google Video Chat.
As I type this, Jeff is boarding a flight from Singapore's Changi Airport to Sydney. My poor husband had a six hour long layover in Singapore. He was there in the very early hours of the morning, so nothing was open. We've been chatting via Google Chat all day. He sent me these photos of the empty airport because I asked him to. When we flew out of Changi a few weeks ago, there were a lot more people than usual because a lot of travelers were stuck due to the volcanic ash cloud over Iceland. It's an awesome airport and probably one of the better places to be stranded at.
I dropped Jeff of at SFO this morning for his flight to Sydney. He has a layover in Singapore first, though.
The Singapore Airlines person that was checking him in couldn't locate his Australian visa on his passport (it's not a physical visa; it's all electronic now and the visa should appear when his passport number is entered into their system). Jeff was freaking out a little bit, but after a phone call his visa was confirmed and his boarding passes were issued.
Dear Family, Friends, and everyone else who comes to this blog,
We have created this blog to keep everyone in the loop while we're living in Singapore. We'll share photos, experiences and stories here both for posterity and for everyone back home. In case you didn't know, Jeff is leaving to Singapore this coming Monday, while I will follow with Stan and Joe at the beginning of August (we have to take care of quarantine issues first).
Please follow this blog using the subscription links to the right (ask Jeff if you need further assistance).
