I overspent while in Sydney

I enjoyed my time in Sydney. Amazing people. Amazing beaches. Amazing cuisine. But what I didn't expect was how badly I underestimated my travelling budget to be. I utterly overspent while vacationing in Sydney. Now I have to suffer the consequences of eating grass for the next few months!

Heading to Sydney without an itinerary.

Now this is going to be interesting. My upcoming trip to Sydney will be my first solo trip without an itinerary. Yeap, that's right. I did not plan anything for my upcoming trip. The only thing that I planned was my flight, my accommodations, and one outdoor activity that I decided to book in advance... Continue Reading →

Iceland Adventure Day 1

Thirty minutes into our flight, the captain of the aircraft spoke through the intercom. Singapore Airlines flight SQ352, bound for Copenhagen, Denmark was being diverted back to Changi Airport. The left engine of the Boeing 777-200ER began powering down due to a technical fault. We were now flying on only one engine. As we approached... Continue Reading →

A shout-out to Nordic Visitor

For the past couple of months while planning our trip to Iceland, Nordic Visitor has been extremely helpful in giving us advice, tips and most importantly, assisting us in booking our accommodations, car rental and activities for our trip. Without them, planning our itinerary would have been much more difficult. They were extremely helpful in... Continue Reading →

What you do is simple: Just key in basic information such as airline, flight number and date of flight and it will automatically find the correct... Continue Reading →

Overall, I am quite amazed at how cheaply one can live in Tunisia.  But before making comparisons, a little intro on their... Continue Reading →
