    Lovin’ the photos! Shame you guys are only in Singapore for a day – I’m visiting my brother in Singapore for Christmas. I’ll keep a look out for you at Changi airport!

    1. It could all change as we also have a friend there… When you gonna be there from? What´s the gossip?

    Wishing I was somewhere warm where shorts were the norm… However, a year of unclean toilets I could do without! I hope you both are still having fun. Just thought of you – was going to suggest you join us for AK’s leaving do later this month, but realised you were across the globe. Do meet up with us and regale us with stories when you return! I’m trying to decide where to go on my next holiday.

    1. Yes, the toilets really are terrible and China is definitely the worst!

      Yeah, still having a great time and looking at ways to string it out for longer.

      Send AK my best and I’ll hopefully see you all when I get back.
