I’ve never seen a view like this. Palm trees and an infinity pool overlook a city 57 stories below as people swim out to the edge to take selfies with the skyscrapers. It’s like something out of a movie, and yet here I am taking it all in. It’s a great introduction to my 3 days in Singapore.
Less than a week after I returned to London from Singapore, I was already starting to miss good Singaporean food. Thankfully I didn’t have to wait long to try more of it. Nor did I have to go very far to do so.
After traveling through Sri Lanka for 10 days, it was time for me to head back to Singapore. I took a red-eye flight that arrived at Changi Airport at 8am, and had breakfast in the BA First Lounge before starting my day in the city-state.
I don’t often spend Christmas at home. This tradition started when I was eight years old and my grandmother began taking my entire extended family to Maui at Christmastime. Once that tradition expired, my immediate family spent Christmases in places like Costa Rica and Kona. But no matter where I spent Christmas, there was always one thing that every destination had in common: warm weather.
