Taipei travels

One of the best things about Singapore is its geographical proximity to so many places I would not have visited otherwise, and I'm glad to have seen these places. The most recent trip was to Taipei where the Missus and I did walk quite a bit.

Singapore recreational

Most believe that Singapore is a pure city, a concrete jungle and most would not be wrong ... but as often happens in Singapore someone important has a bright idea and then not before long that idea turns into reality. It was through one such idea that the tree top natural walk was formed and thanks to Ferry and Cherry I had the occasion to explore the wilderness of Singapore (or at least as wild as a city like this can get).

The Tree Top walk - the view from here justifies the 11 km walk

Walking east

My walk has now taken an interesting turn through an MBA programme in Singapore and that's probably going to keep me in south east Asia for a while now. Let the walk begin... 

It's impossible to think of Singapore without thinking of a Dragon

and bright coloured charms

Lamps in temples 

A place of worship for everyone

And of course the Buddha

the iLights festival - Dandelions 

the iLights festival - Rain clouds

the iLights festival - trees

A walk in Scotland

They say a picture says a thousand words... so I'm just going to let the photos do the talking...
