Whenever I go to Greenwich, I usually just go to the places of interest like Odeon cinema, Charlton shopping centre, or the O2. I never really thought to get off the bus and explore the places we drove past in the Greenwich area, until Tuesday. My friend Georgina and I decided to jump on the 486 bus going to North Greenwich and unravel the mystery of a place the bus always drives past before getting to North Greenwich (another name for it is the O2).

I’ve lived here all my life, but never had I seen so much color in Singapore – bright orange columns against the dirty cream of signs reading “Internet Café, 24 hours” with blinking neon arrows. As I walked towards the ethnic neighbourhood of Little India, the gravel beneath my sneakers slowly fell away to a tessellation of orange diamonds, and the public housing shrank to traditional shophouses, standing in full glory from red windows, to turquoise walls, and striped patio blinds.

Keeping healthy on the road is critical to travel success. We all know to wash our hands, drink bottled water, and make sure to eat right. But how else can we harness technology (i.e., travel apps) to help us stay healthy while we’re traveling?

Life Vests Keep Pets Safe On Open Waters

There are two kinds of people who prefer private travel by boat: those seeking serenity, and those who embrace adventure. Now, a boat can be a luxury yacht navigating the open sea, an elegant sailboat exploring waterways and bays, a houseboat floating on a lazy river, or even an airboat speeding through marshland.

Travel photographers can have a number of different jobs.  Some travel photographers photograph exciting places for travel advertising, others for travel articles in newspapers/magazines.  Some also use the photographs for travel blogging websites/online journals.  Personally, this job interests me a lot as it’s the two things I enjoy most in life: travelling and photography.  Travel photography in newspapers/magazines for me looks to be the most exciting, as you get to share your experience, in photographs, for the world to see.
