Singapore is large, clean, fancy and expensive. It started off on the airplane and the flight attendants were saying over the intercom to not chew gum or you will get fined and the Singaporeans would get offended if you did certain things. I loved the view from the airplane! You could see anything like boats, drilling rigs and more. The security was easy and you could not bring a knife that you press a button and it opens. It was as clean as you could think of. First of all they gave me a piece of candy and I ate it so I got another at customs. They were delicious!
We took the train and then walked the rest of the way to our hotel that was a high end resort in Canada and it was one of the cheapest hotels. We stopped there to hang out and use their fast wifi. After an hour of using their wifi we took a bus to the Botanic Gardens and saw lots of plants, turtles, a lizard and a gecko. It was amazing!
After the Botanic Gardens we took the MRT to downtown where we walked a long ways. There was a beautiful light show that had lasers and we didn’t even know it was happening. My favourite thing about Singapore is that there were a lot of rich people and a lot of expensive and fancy things.
Sorry for the delay, I didn’t have wifi for a few days.
Today we went scootering to a temple and we stopped at the gate to get our things that looked like skirts that we had to wear. They went from our hips down to the floor. You couldn’t go in a temple without one of the things. It looked real crazy and ridiculous. It took about 5 min to scooter 25 km per hour and it’s about 15 km to the 2nd place where you can park and start the hike to the rest of the temples. We had to hike 1567 steps to the middle of the loop.
In my opinion the 1st one was the best temple of them. I was pretty amazed at the 2nd one too and then it just got boring hiking and hiking again! We finished off the day with a scooter to the white sand beach (Virgin Beach). The white sand beach had white sand and we had to go through the security and pay the fee that was $10000 Rp. 10000 Rp is $1.00 CAD. We stopped along the beach to have a roasted corn. The BBQ was made from what looked like a culvert, out of metal, only a lot smaller, and they used small chunks of coal. Just so you know on the way out we didn’t pay because the workers went home and it was raining. I don’t think you have to pay.
We are just leaving the first house to try to make it to the 2nd. FaceTimed with some friends and packing. All of us bring each one of our back packs and our own stuff in our own bags. We are trying to make it to the beach today or tomorrow morning.
Today we woke up in a hotel that’s sort of run down but really nice and clean. There was a pool and the shower was next to the toilet so when you had a shower you would get the seat wet. The breakfast was eggs and toast, the toast was good and the eggs were different than normal. Then when we were done we went for lunch. After lunch we went to this place that had a sales person that would not stop talking. After that we went for a swim and played soccer. When we were playing our game the guy came by with the pizza and we ate the pizza until…
While we were eating my brother got stung by the Megalara Garuda, so the guy came and got rid of it but he ate its larvae at the spot!
Indonesia is sort of small, but they have a lot of rice fields that look like mud with grass growing in small bunches all over the field. The local foods are delicious and cheap. Since we have been here for only 3 days we are still looking for a house to rent close by but yet other side of the island. We’ve found a couple that we are going to check out. We like to stay at a place for about 1 month or 1 year sometimes, so than we can get comfortable and get a lot of food. We like to Rent a 2 scooters and use them for transport and food.
The Tibuwana water fall was awesome because it had swimming all around the water that falls down. The walk down was not that bad, but a lot of stairs and it only took two minutes running so four minutes walking. It was the best water fall I have see so far. The little temple was different than you see in town. It was a fun half day adventure.
Hello, we are four travellers and we love to travel around the world, up to Canada, Down to Australia and around the side. After a couple months or a year, we go back to Alberta Canada and then go back to travelling. Every time we travel we go to the cheap spots and if we have a couple hours in the airport in the night we sleep on a bench. I like to use the wifi and eat the bananas, the best airport yet is New Zealand, but the next one is Easter Island. The thing I like about the one in Easter Island is it’s almost all outside in the fresh air.
