A girl can dream – my travel wishlist for 2018.
Now that 2018 has begun, it’s time to think about the different places I could potentially explore within the next 12 months. Mind you, it is a wishlist and it would be nigh impossible to visit all these places given the budget and leave constraints. But dreaming is free! And since it is, let’s make it lofty. Hahaha.
Portimão, Portugal. The south of Portugal where the beaches are. The Algarve region is pretty much a large tourist trap, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting to visit in the slightest.
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Since the later part of the year sees me back in Singapore, KL is a very affordable and nearby option. The food. I miss the food!!!!
Bangkok, Thailand. Another nearby location to visit on a shoestring budget. And of course, it’s the food and the cheap traveling that I miss.
Tokyo, Japan. Japanese food, stationery, shopping, sights… what more is there to ask for? A little on the pricey side. Definitely have to save up for this one.
As you can tell, my stomach dictates my decisions in this case. I really do miss the food around the Asian part of town. And of course these are only the places I’ve already visited and would like to revisit and re-explore.
I’m also hoping to visit New Zealand to visit family, Vietnam and South Korea. Too many destinations, too little time (and money). I hope I’ll be able to check some off this list this year at least.
It's been more than 2 years since I began living in Portugal and in the blink of an eye it's time to return. Of course, this remark is slightly tongue-in-cheek, because this journey certainly has had its ups and downs. So it does feel like I've been here forever on...
If you’ve been around these parts long enough, you’d know that one of the banes of my life is exercise. I should do it to be healthy, but I don’t. I’ve tried all sorts of things – jogging, lifting light weights, home exercises, tennis… but none of them lasted long.
Two things about Madrid stand out to me: how bright and clean it is and also how different the architecture looks compared to Portugal. To be honest, I thought that there wouldn't be much difference between the buildings of the two countries but I was very surprised...
