I finally got my busy butt to write, but for now it will be my flight to and the first two days of my stay in Switzerland. Time went so fast, I didn’t realize, now there’s very few days left until I go back to the Philippines.
I hate to admit that I’m sort of not looking forward to it.
This is my first time to be on a long flight alone. I rode Singapore Airlines with a single layover at Singapore Changi Airport. That was my first time in Singapore (surprise?), so my stop there was sort of an adventure especially with the sudden flight delay. Fortunately their airport has awesome WiFi connection that besides Ingress I even got to blog. As soon as I arrived in the airport, I called my Mom for her request from there then I called my boyfriend who, to my joy, was still awake then thankfully. Otherwise, I would have gotten bored even though I had my journal and PS Vita to keep me entertained.
After much walking playing Ingress and taking random pictures, I then find out from a Singapore Air lady staff that my flight was delayed for about three hours. She had to say it with sarcasm even.
They only gave out the notice at the gate.
They did give out food, but I wish the sandwich had salami instead of ham and cheese. I was so excited to get to Switzerland and have endless salami! XD The takeoff was still minutes late, but we arrived on time in Zürich
after hours of loneliness in the plane. Btw, I watched during the flight “It Follows” which was creepy and weird and not the best to watch when it’s all dark in the plane. I also saw “Still Alice.” Good movie; makes me want to read the book.
These were my first drink and meal when I arrived in Switzerland.
Before heading _home_, I visited a music school that’s located in Bülach Railway Station.
Did some groceries and got me a variety of berries since these are not cheap or always available back in the Philippines.
On day two in Switzerland, I walked around the busy streets of Zürich.
We had our lunch at Santa Lucia Corso, an Italian restaurant that does handmade pasta, near the Zürich Opera House and Lake Zürich.
We’ve gone home earlier than I expected probably because there was no time wasted on traffic.
So that concludes the first two days of this trip. Here’s the roundup of places visited (this is also for my future reference):
- Singapore Changi Airport
- Zürich Airport
- Musikschule Bülach

- Jelmoli (some shoe shopping)
