Here we go, here we go, here we go

This trip has been a long time in the making.  We first started talking about visiting Tassie about five years ago, and it’s almost 12 months since we contacted Susie at Tasmanian Odyssey to start planning in earnest.  And now, finally, we are on our way.  Tomorrow we head off to Heathrow and board a plane to Singapore to start our adventure.

I’ve always been a bit puzzled by Singapore.  Seems like it’s a place that nobody visits for its own sake but which everybody passes through on their way to somewhere more interesting, like an Asian equivalent of Watford Gap Services only with better noodles.

Having said that, from the research we’ve done Singapore sounds to be rather appealing, a cosmopolitan city state with a lot going for it.  If our hotel’s got Wi-Fi I’ll report back on what we find there.

"Platypus" is a red herring: I'm English, although my blogging career began in my record of a 2016 road trip to Tasmania. Other blogs followed covering road trips in Newfoundland (2017), the Yellowstone area of the USA (2018) and New Zealand (2019). My current project is "Now I'm 64" , a weekly blog covering UK travel and wildlife, along with bits of history, social commentary and moans about the injustice of aging. I can guarantee a few laughs, and also the occasional rant. Some of it's even quite well written!

  1. Bon voyage! Summer seems to have arrived in Tassie just in time for your arrival too! I am so looking forward to reading all about it as you travel around Tassie. And what a pleasure it has been to arrange your adventure. But … are the platypuses ready for you?! The Bush Telegraph has been buzzing! Here goes …. Susie
