SINGAPUR Na treti pokus (3prestupy) sa mi podarilo dostat i do tohto statu. Najskor som chcel vyuzit free tour ale casu som mal kopec, tak som to dal na vlastnu past a bolo dobre i ked som bol len v garden bay. Velmi fajn miesto na relax, nocna sou bola krasna, i ked nemuseli tak rychlo striedat pesnicky. Krasny bol aj pohlad na behajuce sikmacky po nabrezi. Skoda, ze som nestihol jedlo v la pa sat food court ale i v bayfront obchodaku bolo ok Hotovost som tu vobec nepotreboval, zbytocne som vyberal peniaze. Vsetko sa dalo platit kartou. Pri letisku je dalsi uchvatny architektonicky skvost jewel.Letisko samotne je kapitola o seba. Free kino, rozne oddychove zony. Clovek by tu mohol vklude stravit 24hod. Co ma mrzi,opat sa mi z tohto statu nepodarili poslat pohladnice. Hadam ... read more

Asia » Singapore » Boat Quay June 29th 2019

Singapore was inserted into the itinerary primarily as a layover from Tokyo to Perth, however once we heard we were due to be there, we decided we may as well spend a night or two for old time sake. The flight here was perhaps the first hint at a major airplane meltdown by Senan, but in truth that was actually all our fault. I had noticed that there was something weird with the Peppa Pig's on the tablet, but never went back to fully investigate. And so it was that we were on the plane for a 6.5 hour flight when we discovered, horror of horrors, that PEPPA DOESN'T WORK! Senan was due a nap, but he wasn't succumbing to it until his got his Peppa hit, but there was none on the in-flight entertainment system. ... read more

Singapore is a beautiful mix of the old and the new; of the sensible and the absurd. However, this gorgeous travel destination definitely isn’t the easiest on the pockets. This tiny nation of modern luxuries can cost you the highest than the rest of its Southeast Asian counterparts. Despite its dollar-stretching reputation, Singapore continues to be one of the most visited countries in Asia. With its world-class attractions, rich culture and diversity, and accessibility with direct flights to its surrounding regions, one can’t resist its urban allure. Traveling Solo to Singapore Visiting Singapore wasn’t part of my 2019 go-to places. I didn’t even have that list to begin with! However, an opportunity to travel to Malaysia came in and I wasn’t one to let it pass by. Since Singapore is just an hour away from Kuala ... read more

This blog covers a two day period 17th and 18th June 2019 Well this time had to come eventually, we have been everywhere we planned, we have seen everything we wanted to (even if the lioness was shadowy), we have used up all the leave our bosses gave us, the only thing we didn’t use up was all the spending money we bought with us and it wasn’t for the lack of trying. Africa has been an inexpensive place for Kiwis to travel to and the sights to be seen and experiences to be had just can’t be found anywhere else we have been. But a little drama first and it was like history of 3 years ago repeating itself. As usual we did the check of all valuables that should be on our bodies somewhere, ... read more

It seems we have been planning the BBA-V4 for ages and that we would never get it underway. But today was D-Day and the Great South African Adventure is on its way. A typical, beautiful, sunny morning greeted us after less sleep than usual as we woke early in anticipation of the day ahead. Our daughter Erin with grandson Brayden arrived ahead of time and we loaded up and headed for Tauranga airport and the first flight of the day, a short 25 minute hop to Auckland. After a tearful goodbye it was time to board and let the all women crew wing us to Auckland. It is a well marked walking route between the Domestic and International terminals at Auckland. The green line twisted and turned with most of the route under at least half ... read more

Since we left Dubai three weeks ago, we have both had niggling coughs. George's got worse earlier in the week, and then this morning he woke up and his eyes were all swollen. Not sure if he has a cold or it there is something in his eyes. We decided to find a pharmacy to see if we could get something to calm down his eyes. The pharmacist suggested some eye wash might help clean out the eyes. As we are starting our journey home tomorrow, today we had to do all the packing, and it had to be 100% airplane compliant this time as hand all luggage is normally weighed on Emirates in Dubai. This evening, we thought that we would return to our favourite hawker center for one final meal. It did not disappoint. ... read more

Asia » Singapore » Singapore Zoo May 22nd 2019

Hey, sorry its been a while since I've done an update. Been on the job hunt since arriving in Australia. Anyway thought I'd add an entry and loads of pictures from our stay over in Singapore. Had 4 days there as a layover so we didn't have to do over 20 hours on the plane in one hit with the kids. We stayed at hotel boss which was fairly central. Did a little bit of exploring of the city as a day a Singapore zoo. The zoo is probably the best one I've ever been too and you definitely need the full day as its huge. So huge in fact I had to hire a cart to pull the kids around in all day. Anyway I hope this finds everyone well and i'll add another entry ... read more

This morning, we visited ION Orchard Mall as we had a food tour booked. We did this tour last time we were here in 2016, but it was nice to see the changes since then. There was only the two of us on the tour today, so it felt it was very personal. The tour is now called a heritage and food tour, so we got to hear a little about the heritage of ION Orchard which was very interesting for us. Afterwards, we were taken down to the food court and given some samples of the typical Singaporean food. Once inside the food court, we were taken around the different stalls and explained the local food that they offer and the history of each stall. At the end they provided us with small samples of ... read more

George is still having problems walking long distances with his sciatica, so we decided we would do the Skypark at Marina Bay Sands. This was something that we had wanted to do in our last visit, but we ran out of time. We took the metro from our hotel and it stopped directly under the hotel. It was then just a short walk to the lift for the Skypark. The Skypark at Marina Bay Sands is an open air observation deck on level 57 of the hotel. It gives spectacular views of most of Singapore. With the current heat and humidity it is impossible to stay up there for too long as there are no shaded areas. It was great to have done it at last though. We think about 35 - 38 degrees. After that ... read more
