Big Blog Exchange: Exploring New Lands

There is something very unique about travelling and during this trip there have been moments when I’ve felt like I was in film. Almost as though I’m reflecting on myself being there, living that moment. I feel it at times when I am most relaxed and immersed in the country. I felt it when we were in Raffles Hotel drinking Singapore Slings or when having a great conversation with someone I’d only just met, as though we’d known each other for years.

Big Blog Exchange: Sentosa - “Island of the dead” to “tranquility and peace”

Only 10 minutes from the mainland by train, car or cable car, Sentosa is easily accessible to pop over for a day, weekend or even a spot of lunch.

My home in Asia for two days, I stayed at the Costa Sands Resort on Siloso beach and felt truly welcomed by the wonderful staff there. They went out of their way to ensure I had a great time and felt comfortable. I had my own beach hut with 2 bunk beds in it, a stone’s throw from the golden beaches and warm, calm sea. There was even a peacock roaming around the beach huts to keep me company.

When I found out I was coming to Singapore, I remembered a picture my brother sent me years ago, of the most incredible pool suspended from 3 towers. An infinity pool unlike any other. A pool of my wildest dreams. This pool is the SkyPark at the top of Marina Bay Sands Hotel in Singapore, the jewel of the city. Ever since I first laid eyes on that photo, it has been my dream to go there. 

Today that dream came true! Unfortunately, I couldn’t afford to pay the $400 a night that it costs to stay there so I had to find another way.
