Day Trip to Singapore

40782656895_6816226f09_k

“Have you been to Singapore?” my Indonesian date asked me.

“Yes, but only for a half day,” I replied.

“Visa run?” he asked knowingly.

“Yep, visa run!” I responded. “I’d love to go back, to see more of the architecture and some gardens.” And eat my weight in food at that vegetarian Indian place I went to last time, I thought.

Most of my May wasn’t too terribly interesting, as I continued living and working in the suburbs of Jakarta. Highlights from the first part of the month included watching Deadpool 2 and Solo, visiting a few new malls, and eating some good vegan food.

My last visit to Hong Kong Disneyland in 2014 was so magical that I knew returning on this year’s visit would be a priority. I decided to spend 2 days at Disneyland and opted to do the cheapest option, which was to commute there by train from my cheap hostel in Kowloon.

Although I’d spent the past 3 years dreaming of going back to Hong Kong, I actually hadn’t set up any kind of itinerary for my trip back there this year. I suffered through jetlag for my first weekend there, and then I went to Disneyland on Monday and Tuesday. Beyond that, I hadn’t made any plans for myself.

However, on my way back to my hostel on Tuesday night, I formulated a plan to take myself on a date the following day because it was Valentine’s Day, and I wanted to treat myself and celebrate the success of my solo travels so far.

I’m a huge believer in sustainable travel, so whenever possible, I try to take public transportation. In Indonesia, this can be a bit of a challenge.

Pink Dolphins in Hong Kong

Despite being a lover of all things nature, I’m extremely skeptical when it comes to animal encounters. I enjoy seeing animals, as most people do, and the popularity of certain animals makes them easy targets for exploitation. However, it didn’t take long to find a way that I could experience Hong Kong’s pink dolphins without causing harm to them in the process.

April 2018: What I’ve Been Up To

When I started drafting this post on April 11th, I wrote an intro explaining that my April wasn’t very exciting; it had been uneventful so far, and I expected that trend to continue throughout the rest of the month. I’m happy to say that I was wrong!

A Ray of Sunshine in Cloudy Cincinnati

36836735960_5cc6cfd70d_k

It’s pretty well established that I’m not a fan of cold climates. However, two sure things that can make me suck it up and endure the shivering are the city of Cincinnati and following my darling sister around with a camera. I had recently taken her photos on Anna Maria Island, and this would be the second time I’d have the pleasure of capturing her during our sister shenanigans.
