Stopover in Singapore
If you’ve noticed I’ve been a bit quiet on the blog for the past week, I’m sorry. Or, you’re welcome. I suppose it depends on whether you like getting constant notifications of my new adventures and discoveries around the world.
The main reason is because I’ve been shifting continents and, after about four months in Asia, have now arrived in Europe to do a bit more exploration in this part of the world.
On the way through, I stopped for a couple of days in Singapore to stay with some friends and see a bit of the city.
Even though I’ve been to the airport about a dozen times, I’d never really gone into town and seen it properly. That expression “Disneyland with the death penalty” shaped my view of Singapore more than anything else.
It was only a brief stop but it has given me enough of a tease to want to go back and see more. One of my friends there, Tim, runs a new travel blog called The Humidity, and his musings on life in that region may have to be enough to get me through until I get a chance to return.
In the meantime, I thought I would share a few of the photos I took in Singapore.
You’ll see that there’s a really interesting dichotomy between the old gritty local side of the city and the new polished international side.
Ultimately there’s probably more that links these two faces of Singapore than separates them, but it’s what I found so fascinating about the place and look forward to delving deeper into one day.
