This Blog begins at 34,016 feet over Saudi airspace, south of Abu Dhabi en route to Doha from Singapore.
I’ve an important assignment – one of many in recent years – at Hamad International Airport tomorrow before continuing on to my first visit to the UK in ten months.
After all those pandemic-ravaged months of not being able to enter Singapore despite only living a three-hour flight away, I’ve been to the city state twice in the space of a fortnight. The first was for our Smile Raising Dinner and TFWA Asia Pacific; the second a whistlestop visit for the joyous wedding yesterday of Foreo Global Travel Retail Director Gary Leong to artist and model Lilith Yu.
I flew out of Singapore very early Sunday morning and after a few hours shut-eye am now in my Interim Doha Bureau at the always top-notch Hyatt Regency Oryx Doha, all good to go again on the website that never sleeps.
Joy then on a Saturday but news of immense sadness has reached me on a Sunday. More of that at the appropriate moment tomorrow. Life is fast, sometimes too fast. It is also fleeting.
