This nine-week journey, To the Camino and Beyond, is almost over. Any holiday can be good in many respects. It might be fun, adventurous, interesting, fulfilling, or resting. Or, if you're searching for something like family roots, a holiday could be revealing. Or a holiday could just be different. In terms of plain fun, Singapore has been the most fun for us on this entire journey.
We found 'ifly Singapore' this morning, and for two 45 second periods, I flew in a wind tunnel. With the aid of an instructor, I floated in the air to a height of three or four metres. Then, I paid extra to fly to a height of maybe 10 metres or so. It was the best fun, and it cost about $170 all up. But I also bought the T-shirt and the video.
We paid a visit to the Merlion and thought of Jean's parents, Tom and Mag, who remember it from their own previous visit. After the Merlion, we took the cable car and then the underground train to the Gardens by the Bay where we inspected the Super Tree Grove, which are human-made structures designed to allow creeping plants to grow over them. They look amazing.
Me flying just a couple of metres high. My instructor stands in the wind tunnel with me. I was a shit-hot flyer. Some of the others were rubbish.
