My trip to Bintan Island involved yet another early start, I was so tired by this point that I was almost tempted to stay in bed. The thought of spending the day in an Indonesian paradise soon had me jumping out of bed though! There are several different resorts you can stay in on Bintan, we decided to go with Nirwana Gardens as we were only going for the day, it was reasonably priced and not too far from the ferry terminal which meant we could spend more time there.
There are so many things that you can do in Sydney, but when you only have 30 hours you don’t have anywhere enough time to do everything. One of the things on my list of potential things to do in Sydney was to visit the Blue Mountains. The Blue Mountains are a 2 hour train journey to the north-west of Sydney, we work a night flight from SIN to SYD and as you would expect the crew are all tired beyond belief, so I didn’t think anyone would want to come with me and I didn’t think it was wise to go alone. Thankfully some of the crew where up for an adventure, so after a quick shower and shovelling some food down our throats at the hotel breakfast buffet we made our way to the train station for what would turn out to be an amazing day.
Katoomba was such a cute little town
