Departure day...

It's funny, I must have anticipated this day so much, and taken out all the sorrow in advance - because today was actually not too bad. Some tears yes, but not as bad as I had thought. It was just a really lovely send off.

It was a bit of a shame that we had to leave Brunei on a SQ flight (rather than a RBA flight), but as the tickets were organised for us, we had no choice. On the upside, it didn't depart until just after lunch time, so we could get up and have breakfast at our own pace, and then Peter had organised the hotel car to take us to the airport.

Isabel and Nicole had both brought the kids to see us off, and one of Lucas' friends, Kester, came along too, which was really nice. At least we got to check in this last time, in the new terminal!





The Ferans had made us this lovely sign, no one could miss that we were leaving, for good:


After the goodbyes, it was also time for one last visit to the airside Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. Yes, all smiles by then - it was such a nice feeling to actually be on our way, finally..! Goodbye Brunei.
