Iceland

I really miss traveling these days. As I now have finished UNI and are about to leave for Norway, the question on whats next occurs on conversations all the time. Most of the time I would love to say “I am going to travel the world!”, but that would be a lie, at least for now.

So to help on the travel blues I am now going to tell you about a amazing business trip I took to Iceland in April! I were so lucky to get a job with the travel company Discover the world in London and they sent me to Iceland to document

one of their class trips. And what a class trip!

We went everywhere! I got to drive snowmobile on the top of a volcano, crawl in to caves, walk on glaciers, see seals, drive through the most amazing landscapes. One day we woke up to snow, during the day it turned into sun, then fog and in the end of the day it was raining! What a mess 😛

But if you ever get the opportunity or time to go to Iceland DO IT!!! It is the most magical place I know, I have been there twice and I want to go back again! AMAZING!

Have a closer look at what I did in Iceland on the official Discover Iceland with Discover the World video:

Food in Singapore

Singapore is known for having a rich variation of food. Since Singapore is filled with people from all parts of Asia they bring with them a lot of their local food. The food is also much cheaper to buy already cooked out then to buy the groceries and cook back home. Something that is very different from most other countries.

When you go out to eat it is a lot of places to chose between. You can go from all range of prices as well as all kind of food. If you are unsure if you will like the local food it is more then enough American and

European restaurants to go to. But you should really have a taste

of the local delicacies. One of the cheapest places to eat is at a Food market/center were they have many small stands were you can get good food.

Singapore is one of the few places in Asia were you can be sure that everything is clean no matter were you are. Every place is checked regularly by the government to see if they are following the guidelines for food cleanliness. The places is then given a sign with A, B, C or OK. If you see a A or OK you know it is a clean place to eat. B and C is less clean, but still clean enough to stay open.

Dave brought his friend to Newton Food market and are presenting some local food you should try if you go to Singapore.

 

Weekend trips outside Singapore

If you are lucky to stay in Singapore for a long time, maybe you work or study there, you should use it for all it is worth. Singapore is a central part of Asia and it is cheap and easy to travel for short or longer trips to other countries.

One of the places that also is a big hit among the locals is a trip to the island Bintan in Indonesia. It is easy to get to with a ferry and before you know it you are in Indonesia. We stayed in a bungalow at a place called Nostalgia Yasin. Beautiful place to just relax. You can get a massage, swim in the ocean or pool, go for a walk, eat some awesome food. And it is all very cheap. Really worth a trip if you have the time!

If you want to check out Malaysia one of the more historical places that often is forgotten is Malacca. This is a cute little town with a lot of hidden treasures. Here you can go mental with shopping in arts and crafts shops as well as the famous night market. They have some of the cutest cafes I have ever been to and the river is just so beautiful to walk along. You can also have the chance to learn something about their history with pirates!

If you want to go to Borneo, Kutching is a nice town to visit. It is in the Malaysian part of Borneo and is a really quiet and small place to visit. I have to admit that not much was happening when we were there. I think the biggest thing to do there is to get out of the city and in to the jungle. We didn´t do that because I got sick…

That happens and then you just have to make the best out of it. To bad, because I think Borneo would have been a great place to explore better.

One place we went that is really not worth visiting is Johor Bahru in Malaysia. This is a border city of the scary kind. I felt so unsafe when I were there, almost didn´t feel safe to film anything. The place is usually just visited to buy cheap stuff and things that are not legal in Singapore, like gum and porn. Not worth a visit at all, just keep away.

 

Kuala Lumpur on the other hand is worth having a look at. This is the main capital of Malaysia and a must see. You can take bus or plain there and stay at nice hotels for a fraction of the Singaporean price. Try the monorail, go in the parks, visit the Petronas towers and just look around. Not the best capital I have been in, but maybe you see something else when you visit it.
