Singapore Slings at Raffles

This time we had more time to ponder "life" here. That does not mean we haven't been taking in some of the classic tourist sights that we missed in our first visit. Like the Raffles Hotel Long Bar, where the Singapore Sling was invented in 1915. I am not sure if our two Singapore Slings were worth the $75, but coupled with the atmosphere and history, it simply needed to be done.

Welcome to our travel blog. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to say, "I'm out of here?" Well we did, and in 2013 we made it a reality. We sold or gave away all of our possessions other than what fit in our luggage and we set off on an endless adventure. Part of our goal is to share our experiences with others and hopefully provide some information, motivation, or just a moments escape. The general idea was to look for a place that would be ideal to settle down in. However in the meantime it is about experiencing life in different countries amongst different cultures and learning how to understand and appreciate each other. A large part of our time is spent housesitting which provides an excellent opportunity to experience more of the "normal" neighbourhoods as opposed to the tourist locales. Though we make sure to enjoy those as well. So through plenty of photographs and a running commentary come and share with us our life on the road.
