Departure day! It was exactly 1 week after our wedding. We brought 2 luggage (25 and 26 inches) and 1 carry-on. Not ideal for train travel in Europe but we're not used to travel light. At least we keep the weight down. about 12 kg each. The itinerary was set. London > Disneyland > Paris > Lucerne > Munich > Verona > Venice > Rome.
We've been Singapore Airlines Kris Flyer members for a long time so we took Singapore Airlines to London via Singapore. Departure from Jakarta was 17:00 but it was delayed for 1 hour but it was okay because we had 4 hours connection time. It did affect our plan to visit the terminal 3 Silver Kris lounge though.
We arrived in Changi Terminal 2 at around 20.30 and took the monorail to Terminal 3. Changi, in our opinion, is the best airport in the world. Terminal 3 was decorated for Christmas and there's a big Angry Birds display in the hallway. We went straight to our gate and waited for boarding. We took the suite class in an Airbus A380 plane, which was really nice!
The stewardess showed us the features of our seat and after dinner, they switched the seats into beds. We watched a movie but couldn't remember it. Singapore Airlines also has the best airline food in the world, even in Economy Class. We went to sleep after watching one movie. 4 hours before landing, they turned on the lights and prepared breakfast. The breakfast was pretty good as well. Finally, the captain announced that we were landing in Heathrow soon. We were so excited. It was my first trip to Europe in 15 years and my wife's first ever.
