Day 1 - Auckland to London

I love Singapore Airlines.
Shame it was the 12 hour overnighter, personal entertainment thingies, TV and films to watch, video games to play decent food (for airline food)it was tough getting to sleep - we kept waking up thinking we were nearly there but it was only an hour or 2 at a time. :(
I love Singapore Airport.
Orchid Gardens, Free massage chairs, Mythbusters on the telly, Free internet terminals. All this for a 2 hour stopover.
Next it was on to London via Munich. Lufthansa all the way (Boo) another 1ong flight - 13 hours this time one of those old fashioned planes (Airbus) with the central telly that drops down and you have to watch the films they put on for you - Ryan wasn't tall enough to see the TV without lots of cushions so the ipod full of AC/DC and Monty Python came into play.
