The airport shuttle bus leaves for Milan Malpensa airport just across the road and we board the 9.00am bus for the one hour trip. The airport is just that - unremarkable - and we settle in to our Singapore Airlines seats for the 11 hour flight overnight to Singapore.
There is a mix of happiness to be going home - four weeks has been enough to be away and always moving - and, particularly for Liz, despair at having to return to work and deal with the problems that will have undoubtedly eventuated over that time.
Our flight takes us over the Northern Adriatic, Bosnia-Herzegovnia, Bulgaria and Turkey. We skirt Iraq and Afghanistan, try to sleep over Indian and eat breakfast above the Andaman Sea. It has been the most turbulent flight I have flown with drinks slopped and hours of wobbling in our seats.
But all this is forgotten when greeted with the ever-chirpy smile of BB, our hostess for the next few days. Home, some raisin toast and a few hours sleep and we're ready to take on Singapore!
