Singapore travel guide: The best things to see and do in Singapore

This tiny nation island just south of Malaysia and north of Indonesia is full to the brim with things to see and do. In fact, I doubt anywhere in the world can offer as much to do as Singapore in such a small space! Singapore is a land of visionaries. Its founders have realised their vision to create one of the most forward-thinking and futuristic places in the world. Yet the city is not all metal and glass – the city is still as Asian as can be, and a quick visit to a Hawker Centre or one of...

Where to drink craft beer in Lisbon, Portugal

There isn’t much better than sitting down for a cold pint after a few days of touristing. Resting aching feet, removing the hefty backpack, looking through photos of the day, and swapping highlights becomes a holiday ritual when there’s a glass of something refreshing to go with it. The only drink I wanted to seek out in Lisbon was vinho verde, the tart cousin of white wine, however, we all know beer is my poison of choice, and the Portuguese capital has not just a great number of craft...

10 unexpected fun things to do in Singapore

Singapore is one city I feel lucky to have called home! A big reason why is, of course, all the fun things to do in Singapore but the unexpected nature of some of them is perhaps what really made it so special to call the city ‘home’ for a while… My move to Singapore happened right intertwined with my time studying at Cambridge University and I’ve gotta admit, I moved over armed with not much else than a stereotypical expectation of what Singapore, being the global city that it is,...

One day in Bath

Bath’s architecture and heritage have always piqued my interest. Reminiscent of my beloved Edinburgh in its size and stature, the Somerset city is dripping in history. A centre of wellbeing since Roman times, Bath is still known today for having the only natural thermal hot springs in Britain you can bathe in. There are whispers of antiquity everywhere you look, from the ancient abbey to the grand Georgian homes towering over cobbled streets....
