New Zealand 2016: week 1

I’m posting daily photo collages on Instagram, which I’m linking here. It’s been a week since my mother and I landed in Christchurch, and we’ve been traveling the South Island ever since. As always my heart lifted the moment the plane set down after the long trip, especially because we got to spend a day […]

Singapore, the last

In about 24 hours I’ll be home in Switzerland after about 11 months. How weird is that? I’ve had a lovely time here in Singapore despite my nasty cold, doing shopping and eating yummy food with Amy. Also, again I managed to be here for the Lantern Festival in the Chinese Garden – this year’s […]

Singapore

Arrived in Singapore and was met by Amy last night. Unfortunately I now have a proper cold/flu and am coughing and running a temperature, in addition to some inexplainable stomach problems. Despite this I’m enjoying spending time with Amy again and we had fun shopping in the city today. Monsoon is early this year, so […]

Singapore airport

So now I'm on my way home and Japan is really behind me. Had a lovely day yesterday, though – karaoke in those little karaoke 'boxes' really is a lot of fun, and the National Museum was very interesting, too. I even managed to fit all the books and souvenirs I'd bought into my suitcase, […]

In transit – Singapore/Osaka

Amy here updating for Eva! She should have reached Osaka by now, and on her way to Fukuoka by train. Internet accessibility might be intermittent, and she's probably out of contact by phone, seeing that the telcom system is different in Japan. Let's hope we can still hear from her soon though πŸ™‚

Health update

Just quickly, because I mentioned it to some people without going into details: The day before yesterday I was bitten by something, and since then developed an allergic reaction of some sort, which caused my right ankle to swell and turn red. After I could hardly walk anymore yesterday (btw, a wonderful day on the […]

Singapore live!

Amy's been showing me the Singapore lifestyle, together with some friends of hers. The heat and humidity are still getting to me, but luckily a lot of things happen in air-conditioned environments here. πŸ™‚ In one of the malls (in Bugis, which is cheaper than the city center malls) I even found the first two […]

In Singapore

The plane ride went quite well, despite some turbulences and hardly any sleep. In Singapore airport Amy and her father picked me up. On first glance, things didn't seem so very different, but looking a bit closer it is clear that I'm not in Europe anymore… πŸ™‚ We didn't do much yesterday, because I'm not […]
