So with the Conference over in Singapore it was time to move on the the Post Tour which was going to be held in Darwin, NT, Australia. So it was up early for, a quick trip to the Airport. The bus collected us from the hotel’s bus terminal in the basement and took us directly to terminal 2 where all were leaving from.
The airport was its quick and efficient self and we were soon checked in and passed by emigration, with our passports stamped and were off to the Singapore Airlines Silver Kris Lounge. The lounge was busy, but we found a couple of seats to eat some breakfast and then relax with a coffee before our flight.
It was then a long walk to our gate for security check and boarding of our SilkAir flight to Darwin.

On arrival at Darwin having passed via custom, and having had my walking boots inspected to ensure they were clean enough for Australia, we made our way out to get a Taxi to our hotel. A large taxi arrive and offered a shared ride to all of us going to downtown hotels, which worked out 25% cheaper for each of us, and gave the driver a lot more cash. So a win-win situation.
Having arrived at the hotel, and found the laundry facilities this was a great opportunity to do some laundry and generally chill out in the heat of Darwin. The hotel had a pool which was welcome to cool off in.
An evening stroll round the downtown and we found the restaurant Char on the Esplanade, which while not cheap was excellent.
