Saturday 18th February 2012 in Singapore


No rush today so had a bit of a lay in until 7!

Went to check out the ferry situation first thing, found that ok and booked a ticket to Indonesia for tomorrow, it cost S$47 for a return trip including the bike. Got a return ticket, because to get the visa on arrival you have to have a return ticket, they say a flight but I’m hoping that a ferry ticket will be ok. Could have booked an onward flight from Bali to Australia, but not too sure when I’ll get there if I do at all! Tried to research ferries in Indonesia but it’s very hard going as a lot of information is quite old and out dated and apparently a lot of ferries have stopped running, because of cheap flights, but we’ll see tomorrow what happens!

After sorting out my ferry ticket I then went to get some new tyres, I noticed yesterday when I had my puncture that my back tyre was wearing a bit thin and had gone through to the webbing in places, whilst I was there I replaced the front tyre as it was also getting rather thin.

It’s been raining for a good part of the day today and spent a good part of it sheltering. Spent a good hour or so talking to a father and daughter from Newcastle who were also sheltering from the rain, both very pleasant and nice people to talk too.

After the rain stopped I continued riding around and found the F1 circuit, the names were still above the garages from last year and the pit boxes still had the tyre marks. Very geeky I know but I do like my F1! Went for a ride around the circuit mostly the wrong way but it is on the roads! That’s Singapore and Monaco I’ve rode around now, how sad, but I’m happy!
