Greetings from Norway! I just arrived in Oslo 2 days ago for my first WWOOF experience. Took a bus to Hønefoss and then to Noresund to my first farm. The scenery here is beautiful and surroundings so peaceful. So far, Lydia and her family has been so welcoming. As […]
My foreigner friends always ask me where they should visit in Singapore, and what local food they should try. Other than giving them my recommendations, I usually love to buy them some souvenirs they can bring back, especially yummy snacks! 😛 Being a traveller myself, I often like […]
I hiked the Tour du Mont Blanc anti-clockwise from 10th to 19th September of 2017 and had a truly unforgettable time. The TMB was my second long- distance thru- hike and it was the toughest yet best thing I have ever done in my life thus far. It […]
While out in the trail, it’s usually just me physically moving my feet and hands, but in my head, especially during and after certain difficult sections, thoughts naturally just pop in and sometimes they persist, like constant reminders.
I began my 17 days South Island trip in Christchurch. Took a red- eye direct flight on Singapore Airlines and arrived at about 10am local time.

My main aim on this second visit was to truly experience what NZ is about. The amazing landscapes, and the ruggedness of travelling through it all…

Work was absolutely draining at that point, and I told myself that I needed a break, no matter how little the days I could afford. And so, I applied for my leave a week before, booked my tickets, squeezed time out every night for about 5 days to plan, and I got my 5 days trip to South Island, New Zealand! Essentially minus off the flight, it was a 4 days 5 nights trip. It turned out to be one of the best breaks I’ve ever had thus far, and it’s this trip that made me love last minute trips even more.
Of the cities I’ve been to so far, London is my favourite. It is super tourist friendly, very easy to get around(by foot, or by tube) and has everything I believe anyone needs, to live a comfortable yet exciting life — convenient and modern transportation, beautiful parks, history, […]
