American Dream – Three months of travelling along the East Coast

New York, New York Sometimes new adventures begin whilst still being in another one. When I was in Melbourne for my third time in 2016, I decided that it was time to tick another destination off my bucketlist at the end of this year. When I was younger, I thought that I’d live in New York at some point in my life – but so far, I had made it to the other side of the...

Weekend Getaway From Singapore to Melaka

I have heard so much about Melaka, with all the grand colonial architecture and delicious foods. I have always wanted to visit Melaka but I never really got the chance. The weekend was approaching and my mother wanted to go on a weekend getaway that is not too far away. I suggested Melaka and she was all for it. Most Singaporeans would have either taken an overnight...

Thailand – If Everything Goes Differntly Than Planned

Bangkok a real culture shock I was sitting on the plane, wiping away my last tears, while thinking about the past 11 months in Australia. But before finally returning home, I wanted to make a last stop in Thailand, where I wanted to travel for a month. This plan almost didn’t become reality as there was an entry ban! Nevertheless, I decided to go. On arrival, I...

A Tremendous Tale Travelling To Turkey

Today, the country of Turkey is all that remains of the once dominant Ottoman Empire. It is one of the lesser traveled countries, but it is a truly fascinating place to visit.

East Coast and Outback Australia – Where Backpacker Dreams Become Reality

Travelling down the East Coast of Australia My first year in Australia was coming to an end. But before I had to leave this beautiful continent, there was still my trip along the East Coast. I took the plane from Melbourne to Mackay and from there on, I had to take the bus to Airlie Beach – or at least that was the plan. The bus to Airlie Beach never arrived and so I...

Hong Kong in 3 Days 2 Nights

Hong Kong’s proximity from Singapore makes it one of Singaporeans’ favourite travel destinations. Various regional budget airlines such as Scoot, Jetstar and AirAsia often have promotions for airfare from Singapore to Hong Kong, which makes Hong Kong even more appealing as a weekend getaway. I have personally been to Hong Kong quite a few times, with...

Exploring Morocco – The Merzouga Desert, Marrakech & Essaouira

Morocco is an amazing country and is known as the cradle of human life. Recently, archaeologists in Morocco have discovered remains of homo sapiens that are estimated to be around 315,000 years old far surpassing the previous oldest human remains ever found in Ethiopia. We weren’t able to see the archaeological site but thought it was a really cool fact. Our...

Varanasi is the oldest city and having more than 1000 temples and 60 ghats. Visiting Varanasi is quite an experience because Hindus believe that death at Varanasi...
