Yesterday was a crazy adventure! We had a late start and went to Chinatown for lunch at possibly Singapore's most famous hawker: Hawker Chan and it was truly mind blowing. The line seemed endless, although fast moving, but you need to come early, they tend to sell out and for good reason. Two people after... Continue Reading →
Love at first flight!
A and I are enchanted by Singapore. A concrete jungle, mixed with Avatar-like concoctions, excitement pouring out of every fiber. You could call it love at first flight! From how easy it was to get through customs, literally took mere minutes and I got candy at the end, to how easy it was to get... Continue Reading →
A close call.
It's official, I can sleep through an explosion and a car on blazing fire. This is not a euphemism for anything, this is what actually happened in a small town in the middle of Australia. Spoiler alert: no one got hurt and it wasn't our car. Honestly, I would have most likely slept through all... Continue Reading →
Homage to Steve
I am not a fan of traditional zoos, for obvious reasons but I couldn't travel to Australia and not pay homage to the man that made me fall in love with animals and who sparked a deep interest and care in me for all the beautiful creatures of this world. You know who I'm talking... Continue Reading →
The morning person
I have absolutely no problem with getting up at 5 am every morning. I rather enjoy it, actually. The streets are quiet, (depending on where and when you are) the sun may start to come up and you can quietly start your working day, while everyone else is still asleep. My co-workers make fun of...

Ever since we left the Grand Canyon a few days into our world-trip, A has been complaining about the countless, death-defying, but soul-scaring activities I've managed to organized. So, to cater to A's everyday needs, I listened to his expressed wish to see a real-life in the wild platypus (did you know that the plural... Continue Reading →
High above the Clouds
As you may have gathered by now, I am in charge for planning all kinds of activities for A and me during our world-trip while he is in charge of logistics, food and making sure that I stay grounded... Interestingly though, A agreed to all kinds of activities that I suggested, from going snorkeling with... Continue Reading →
Brisbane, I’d move in a heartbeat.
Remember when I said, I was getting better? Well, that was before... It had gotten so bad, I coughed half the night and decided to spend the last day in Brisbane at the hotel. I also went to the doctor's to make sure that I was doing everything possible to get better soon. So, there... Continue Reading →
My spirit animal
First off, I'm feeling much - MUCH - better, but I'm still coughing especially when the air is too dry or the AC turned on too cold. But other than that, I'm (almost) good as new, that being said. I'm still taking it easy, especially because we got some crazy things planned in the next... Continue Reading →
From bad to worse…
24 hours into Our Australia adventure and everything (mostly me) fell apart. On top of rearranging our next couple of weeks I fell severely ill. Not just a little cough, but coughing so hard that A literally just told me (rather angrily barked at me) that I should stop what I was doing (working, mostly...... Continue Reading →
I am thoroughly exhausted, from head to toe. Jetlag is no joke but if I could any place to cure the jetlag, Hawaii is the place to do it! This morning, A and I had an Açaí bowl while sitting with flip-flops and shorts outside a cute little cafe. It was the most amazing, most... Continue Reading →
We’ve made it to our third stop: Hawaii and we’re instantly greeted with hot air and humidity. Can it get any better than this? We arrived late at night, so we didn’t see much just yet but we have fun things planned for our short time here. Both A and I are incredibly excited, after the... Continue Reading →
Bear with me, all of this has a point: I absolutely love Rachel Bloom in the tv-show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. The character, Rebecca Bunch, played by Rachel Bloom, is a dillusional, hilariously funny protagonist with a flair for drama. If you haven’t already, you should definitely check it out. The coolest thing about this show are... Continue Reading →
