10 Ways to Fall in Love with Singapore

•••
I have to admit: when I was vacationing in South East Asia last year, Singapore was probably the country I was the least excited about.

Originally dotted by small fishing and farming communities the Japanese Art Islands are now also home to galleries, coffee shops and art installations.  The main islands, Naoshima and Teshima are about 3 hours from Kyoto by train and ferry.

A Travelette Takes Off - Cape Town Experience(s)

Considering that I have lived in Cape Town for almost seven years, it is pretty hard to get me excited about activities in the city.

An adventure to Borobudur

•••
I used to think only a small and insignificant handful of things could successfully drag me away from the beautiful beaches of South East Asia. Sizzling street food… Half price cocktails… Some sweet reggae music after all of the above… But it turns out I'm also a sucker for a bloody good temple. Not to be confused with a Shirley Temple. They’re rubbish. M[...]
