    Stopover in Singapur

    November 3, 2017 in Singapore ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Unsere Reise begann am 02. November, als wir um 12:20 von München nach Singapur aufgebrochen sind! Nach 11 Stunden und 40 Minuten Flugzeit kamen wir um 7 Uhr morgens, nach Ortszeit, an✈️
    Zuerst besorgten wir uns einen WLAN-Zugangscode um unserer Familie und unseren Freunden mitzuteilen, dass wir gut angekommen sind! Anschließend fuhren wir gleich mit dem Zug ins Stadtzentrum, um uns ein bisschen umzuschauen! Jedoch unterschätzten wir das Klima, denn es war so heiß und schwül, dass wir schon bald keine Lust mehr hatten so weit zu gehen🙈☀️ Wir beschlossen den Sunplaza Park aufzusuchen um uns zu sonnen und vom langen Flug zu erholen!
    Unser Weiterflug nach Melbourne startete erst um 2 Uhr nachts wodurch uns viel Zeit am Flughafen verblieb.. dadurch entdeckten wir allerdings erst welche Besonderheiten der Flughafen in Singapur besitzt! Unter anderem den Butterfly Garden, in dem sich viele verschiedene wunderschöne Arten von Schmetterlingen tummeln! 🦋Sogar ein hohe Felswand mit einem kleinen Wasserfall konnte besichtigt werden! Außerdem gab es außerhalb des Butterfly Gardens noch einen Teich mit riesigen Koi-Karpfen! Zudem entdeckten wir ein Kino, in dem rund um die Uhr Filme liefen😍 zu sehen gab es beispielsweise Ghost in the Shell, Split, Fast and the Furious 8, The Amazing Spiderman und viele viele andere! Dort verbrachten wir auch die letzten Stunden bis zum Abflug nach Melbourne💪🏼

    Glam strolling

    March 3 in Singapore ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Unfortunately we both woke up at 5:30am this morning, wide awake. After a relaxing start we headed out at about 9am to get some breakfast. We found a Ya Kun Kaya branch and settled for 2 kaya toast sets, one with steamed bread and one with regular toast. The sets come with the toast, soft eggs and choice of coffee or tea; we opted for iced coffee ($11.20 total). Kaya is a coconut based jam that is flavoured with pandan leaves and is seriously awesome. If you get the chance, give it a try! Now the eggs look under done, but that is how they are always done here... you can also add a bit of soy sauce and pepper. I’ve been a bit worried to try them before now, but they weren’t as ‘goopy’ as I expected and were silky smooth. The toast dipped in the egg was simply amazing. We wandered along to the MINT museum of toys which was really unique and we both really enjoyed it. We then walked down to Kampong Glam (the Arab quarter) to enjoy the street art, beautiful view of the mosque and the atmosphere. Great spot! We then headed back towards Bugis and walked through the shops, looking for the Nike store for B, but it wasn’t there! It was 12pm so we headed back to have a rest at the hotel. Just after 2pm we headed out for some chicken rice for lunch ($8 for two) with a barley drink and an iced milk tea ($3 for both). The chicken rice was good but we continue on our search for excellent chicken rice. I really love the chilli sauce, I think it’s got some ginger in it...need to find out what it is so I can buy some, I’ve never had anything like it back home. We continued down the street to the National Museum of Singapore. The regular exhibit was impressive, it was time based and walked you through the different Singapore eras. Really enjoyable and probably one of the best exhibits I’ve ever seen in a museum. After a few hours in the lovely air con we walked back to the hotel to rest up for dinner. We walked down to food republic which is similar to 8 street at Westfield Garden City if you’ve been there, all little themed shop houses with different food. B settled for smoked duck with rice, I got a chicken curry noodle dish and we shared a lime juice and an iced milo for about $20. We tucked in before I remembered to take a photo! My phone says we walked over 11km today, I think that’s a conservative estimate!Read more

    Ramadan Market

    June 15, 2017 in Singapore ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    After leaving Krabi and saying my last goodbyes to Thailand and their toasties it was time to move on to the next destination, Singapore.

    With a smooth flight and arrival to Singapore, I enjoyed being in the lovely airport, throwing me back to March and the beginning of my travels when this was my stop over on the way to Cambodia.

    It was an easy ride to the hostel and soon I was checked in, looking into what there was to do since I had so little time, hence needed a detailed plan of action. The woman at the hostel was very kind, being helpful in organising myself and giving me the 'must-do's' when in Singapore. Wasting no time, I got changed and headed straight out to the Ramadan market which was used by tourists as well as locals.

    Using the MRT (Singapores version of the tube) to get there as it was the quickest and cheapest way. It was so clean that I wouldn't complain if I had to eat my dinner off the floor. But then I'm pretty sure Singapore prides itself on being so clean.

    Eventually I found my way to the market and it was huge, swamping the streets around the main road. There were so many stalls selling everything from clothes to rugs to food and drink. Over whelmed by such choice, I did find a little food stall that prided itself in giving you potatoes covered in raclette cheese. I felt as though I had found myself a gem and I instantly knew what I was having for dinner. The food was delicious and you could even watch the cheese being melted in front of you, how dreamy?

    Carrying on through the market, I found another stall selling s'mores and thought it would be a nice thing to treat myself with something sweet and it definitely worked a charm.

    After about an hour and a half of exploring I felt I had seen quite a lot and thought it would be best to head back and get some sleep for the next day ahead as there was lots planned.

    Exhausted with a satisfied belly I headed back and straight to bed.

    Goodbye India

    July 11, 2017 in Singapore ⋅ ⛅ 84 °F

    Early flight to Singapore this morning, and so it's goodbye to India. It feels like we have packed a month's worth of experiences into just eight days, and we leave India with so many incredible memories. Of all the countries we are visiting, this was the one I was most nervous about, how the kids would react, would we be ill, would it be too hot. But it turns out, I needn't have worried. Kids have loved it - but we've also had some good discussions about the fairness of the world, the inequalities that are so obvious in India but happen everywhere. So I hope that while we were travelling in a bit of a luxury bubble, it has opened their eyes to a world outside Western Europe.
    Hard to pick out a favourite moment, but it is hard to beat sunrise over the Taj Mahal! Boat ride around Lake Pichola, a Rajasthani thali and elephants at Amber Fort all come close seconds!
    Singapore, here we come

    Biking along East Coast Park

    June 28, 2015 in Singapore ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Hello everyone, hope you are all having a great time wherever you are! Yesterday I went to the other side of the island and visited East Coast Park. It took a while to get there, but the shoreline view was well worth the wait. Everyone was out and about, playing soccer and Frisbee on the beach, barbecuing and picnicking, flying kites, and even pitching tents to stay overnight. There were also a number of people, young and old, fishing on the docks. Although the water isn't too clean for swimming, what with the cargo ships anchored nearby, the sand is smooth and pleasant to walk along.

    After eating some chicken, pork and beef satay at a nearby food centre, I rented a bike and headed up the coast. Although I lost myself in a construction zone on the way, I eventually made it to Changi Beach Park, passing the airport on the way. There I managed to catch the sun set behind Pulau Ubin, a small island where locals fish and tourists often visit. I hope to be able to back there again sometime as it's one of the nicer areas I have seen so far.
