Sunday hike in hot & humid weather. What else to expect in a tropical climate. We made our way through the rainforest with well-kept trails & wonderful nature.
The beauty of this green island city-state. Admittedly a luxury retail location to world-class international cuisines. But Singapore is more than famous shopping precinct, it’s a home to a wealth of experiences. Innovative architecture, exciting tracking trails, heritage buildings & shophouses + parks & enormous greenery all over the city-state.

It’s that time of year when I would like to go away, get a change of scenery & simply rest. Ideally, I’d like to get off to a desolate place without a lot of activities, people & historical attractions. It’s contrary to what I usually like. I do actually enjoy the rush of big cities & colorful street life with congestion & noise. You can experience & feel the pulse at close range & still remain anonymous – in the middle of the crowd. It’s quite appealing & cozy (If cozy is the right expression of course). But it’s not quite that kind of longing I have. No, it would be very nice to travel somewhere with a distance to all of this. Beaches, sun beds, palm trees, shade, heat & not too many people around. How does that sound?
I guess it’s boring for some & heaven, for others. The fact is that I have all those things around me, within 30 minutes distance. Still, I’d like to go somewhere far away – just for the sake of change. I may sound spoiled, which is not my intention. It’s more about the need of temporary change – new environment, new ideas, start all over or rather rethink things. To do as little as possible, with simple decisions about which book to read or maybe take a nap. You know, relax, eat, sleep! Yep, indeed, that’s what I desire, right now. But now it will not be like that, at least not for the moment. We have relatives who’s here on five weeks visit. There will be no rest at all, the more trips, guided tours & late nights. Certainly nice but …
Happily, we can look forward to a long weekend in Singapore in March. City life instead of the relaxing mood I’m longing for. However, still a change 🙂
