Travel // Our Covid-19 Journey in Singapore {2020}

I often forget when I'm sat in my little bubble that our life is very different to most of the world. What feels like 'normal' to us and routine is actually very unique. Whilst covid-19 has effected everyone and the impact has been felt all around the world, but those ripples have been experienced very differently. So I thought I'd share our covid-19 journey so far, it's basically the only 'journey' we'll be taking in 2020.

Travel // Journey to… Italy with Matteo Gazzarata, Your Travel Recipes {2020}

This summer especially I’ve enjoyed following Matteo’s travels all over his beautiful home country of Italy. So in a year where I haven’t been able to visit Italy myself, as I would usually do in the summer, I’ve enlisted Matteo to share some Italian delights so that we can all travel vicariously through his pictures.

Travel // Staycation Time at Raffles, Singapore {2020}

I'd heard that the iconic Raffles Hotel was open again after its lengthy refurbishment and was offering some really good rates for those staying more than one night. I'd also read good reports from other expats who'd already been and stayed. What an opportunity to stay in this iconic hotel with no other tourists, plus they always do the best Singapore Slings.

Travel // All Aboard for 9 of the World’s Most Exquisite Sleeper Train Journeys {2020}

I've been wanting to share this post for a while, phase two of covid-19 in Singapore has meant a lot more time ferrying the kids around and a bit less 'me-time' or writing time. But today is an uncharacteristically rainy day, so I've put a cardigan on (this only happens twice a year here in …

Travel // Journey to… Laos with Dom Smith {2020}

Laos has been on our travel list since we got to Singapore, to be honest I'd never heard about this country before, which is nestled in-between Thailand, Vietnam and just above Cambodia. Pronounced like l-ow as in cow, you leave the 's' off. We're still hoping to do a weekend trip here in the next …

Travel // How to Plan an Epic Holiday {2020}

It seems that most of us are stuck in holiday-planning-mode, with travel plans in limbo at the moment, whilst we wait for the green light to jet off. This is to be the year of domestic travel and rediscovering the gems on our very own doorsteps. Although I think I've drawn a short straw on …

Although we're now in Singapore I'm green with envy that Europe is starting to unlock their restrictions and that people will soon be able to resume short-haul travel. I feel we have been on lockdown for the longest time. I predict that going camping will be a very popular family holiday option this summer. I …
