Back to Singapore

I have 1 more night in Singapore before I continue my journey to Auckland. This morning I took a 4hr morning bus from Melaka to Singapore, $12 (£5.50). I’m delighted to report that no one burped in my face stamping me back into the country, what a relief. Not one to sit around, I spent ...

Jonker St

Melaka city is a busy little town apparently big on night markets. On the night I arrived there were two happening! One on Jonker St & the other on the street my hostel was on. Firstly I took a walk along the famed Jonker St, apparently renown amongst antique collectors. Jonker St is lined with ...

I say Melaka, you say Malacca

Keen not to limit my time in Malaysia to solely Kuala Lumpur I am on the road again bound for Melaka aka Malacca. It’s a 2 hour bus journey from KL in the same style of small spacious bus I got from Singapore to KL & cost 11RM (approx £1.60). It is a shame to move ...

I’m on your page now KL

So it took 24 hours & now I get Kuala Lumpur. I guess I’m like Guinness, I don’t travel well. Plus it takes me time to decompress & acclimatise. I think this is linked to the ageing process. Yuk, ageing. I met some lovely people at my hostel & went for lunch with them. I ...

Off I go

I am squashed & uncomfortable & I shall remain in this sorry state for the next 13 hours. This sorry state is the British Airways 8pm flight from London Heathrow  to Singapore. My trip to New Zealand & my new life have commenced! I have a 6 night stop over in Singapore & will probably ...

Welcome to Malaysia

Not one to stay still for too long, I left Singapore tonight bound for Kuala Lumpur. I’m excited to visit Malaysia & without time to research the best place to go I panicked & opted for the capital. Big mistake? Likely, buy hey ho. My bus was S$20 & I travelled with KKKL from the Tampines ...

Singapore

I’m in Singapore & boy do I have WAY too much luggage! My shoulders were aching as I tried to find my way to my hostel, all my fault of course. Combined with the heat & the lack of sleep I was struggling. Hell, I may as well blame the haze while I’m at it! ...

Packing & goodbyes groundhog day

Tomorrow marks the beginning of another adventure. I am going to New Zealand & starting my trip with a week in Asia – Singapore initially & probably Malaysia. Knowing me, I am obviously in packing hell. I can never decide what to take & I pack too much in an attempt to be resourceful & save ...

& then my dreams came true

My boss has got me tickets to the Italian Grand Prix! If you don’t know, I am a massive Formula 1 fan. I never miss a race, I done my final piece in university about Formula 1 & have sent many CVs to the teams. I also have rejection letters from the teams & have ...

That irrepressible desire to book more flights *sigh*

02. September 2015 asia, Travel 0
Apparently not content with stopping over in Singapore on my way to NZ I have an overwhelming need to visit another country in Asia while I’m there. I have 1 weeks & I’m looking for travspiration (travel inspiration) of amazing places you have visited. My top wants on the list are: incredible sights, cheap massages, amazing ...
