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 // 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 // My Wanderlust Bucket List – 2020 Edition

I've decided to draw a line in the sand and write my top travel wish list as it stands at the moment in 2020 in the midst of covid-19.

I figured that as we haven't travelled anywhere yet this year that it's basically day dot for the year anyways. I've narrowed it down to 19 locations I'd like to travel to.

Well after my other two blog posts on things to do in Singapore have been such a hit. I thought I'd do a third post in the series but this time focused on what to do with kids when you're visiting Singapore. I can safely say that after two years living in Singapore we've road …

Sunshine Valley Boat Ride, Ninh Binh, Vietnam

Travel // Vietnam [Part Five – 3 Thing to Experience in Ninh Binh] {August 2019}

We nearly cut Ninh Binh out of our already tight Vietnamese itinerary and I’m so so glad, after much persuasion, that we kept it in. This was by far one of the biggest train stations we'd seen. When we jumped off the night train mid-morning there was so much hustle and bustle. Fortunately it was …
