The funny thing is going to Singapore was never my intention when I left Canada to backpack around Thailand.
The time zone difference between Thailand and Toronto is a solid 12 hours…basically exactly opposite. So it was only natural to be jet lagged the first few days of my trip. One of these days that I was jet lagged, I woke up at 5AM and could not go back to sleep. As all of us millennials would probably do, I picked up my phone and launched the google maps app to explore where in this world I am and what countries are surrounding me. Quickly after I realized there are so many cool countries around that I want to see… then this crazy idea came to my mind to look at flight prices to some of these countries from Thailand! Long story short, I found out for around only $200 I could get a flight to Singapore round trip. Since I was going to be by myself I figured Singapore is probably a good choice due to it being really safe. And so just like that I ended up going to Singapore on a whim!
I always thought we don’t have any mountains here in the East coast. That’s why whenever I would get a few days off from work I would make a trip to the West coast for some mountain therapy. Well, this year however, one of my goals has been to explore more destinations near me…or, better yet, in the county I live in (more to come on my Canadian adventures soon!). Hence, this Canada day long weekend I decided to plan a getaway to the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York. (You see the irony here…. it’s Canada day long weekend..decided to spend it in New York…) In case you’re lost on what I’m talking about…the Adirondack park is comprised of 46 peaks over 4,000 feet that make up ‘The High Peaks’ area. This is why some people refer to the Adirondacks as the 46ers.
Here are some key points you should know if you are interested in visiting the Adirondacks:
Staying in Ao Nang beach in Krabi is definitely something I would recommend to anyone visiting Thailand. I was fortunate enough to spend a few nights here and in this post I’m going to list everything you need to know about staying in Ao Nang, Krabi. Here is the ultimate guide to Krabi, Thailand.
