Singapore

June 17, 2019

After a week in Indonesia  we went back to Singapore, a beautiful city state. Its is so clean and organized a bit too sterile IMHO.The culture is mostly Malay, Indian and chinese.  We stayed at the Marina bay Sands which was a treat as it is walking distance to the biggest  tourist attraction,Gardens by the bay. I got a chance to see  the Singapore history museum, which was great, the science museum was a lot underwhelming especially  for $34/ticket. There…

British Columbia Wine Country// Kelowna

August 4, 2018

After spending time in the Canadian Rockies, we drove 6hrs west to Kelowna, BC. A beautiful town in the Okanagan valley with a microclimate perfect for wineries.

Our days were filled with lake activities: kayaking, jet skiing, pedal boating and just lying by the beach sipping cocktails with a good book in hand. On the second day of the trip…
