Australia trip – one year ago today: Monday 3rd November

In November 2014, Rob and I took the month off to go and explore some of Australia. At the time. we added our daily photos and observations on a Tumblr blog. A year on, I thought it would be fun to revisit our trip on this blog.


Full day in Singapore

We got up rather late (jet lag and very little sleep on the planes does that for you…), but spent a long afternoon into the evening exploring the Marina Bay area. A lot of this is new development where a barrage has been added and lots of new buildings in the area, such as

  • part of the Singapore Youth Olympics park (the football pitch/opening and closing ceremony area is a floating pontoon),
  • a large theatre complex,
  • a huge, very modern shipping mall (catering mainly for higher-end shops)
  • and a big park area with indoor botanic gardens and the outside ‘Super Trees’ which ‘perform’ twice each evening, with both light and music.

We hadn’t been that sure what to make of Singapore from what we saw when arriving, but we thoroughly enjoyed today.

Anyone for tea, this tea shop has hundreds on offer

A very polite sign…
