Now I’m maybe a pirate, but I’m no big diver, and I don’t believe I’m a big swimmer, but if you are then Singapore is the place for you. It is a group of islands, a part of the united nation, and a real paradise for divers, and sea lovers.  Here are some facts about Singapore.

Singapore is the home of 5.2 million people and with millions more visiting every year, Singapore has grown into one of the premier vacation destinations in Southeast Asia. Those planning a trip to Singapore should prepare themselves for a vibrant city that mixes the old with the new.

The city-state – which is located at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula – is a lively mix of multiculturalism. It features no fewer than four official languages as well as an extensive list of recognized and practiced religions.

The Thian Hock Keng temple and Sultan Mosque are two of Singapore’s most popular tourist destinations, and examples of the magnificent array of religiously-significant structures found within the city. They share the streets with some astonishing street markets as well as stores, restaurants and other modern amenities.

The Tiger Sky Tower is the perfect place to get a bird’s eye view of Singapore. On a clear day it’s possible to see as far as Indonesia from the observation tower. Other modern attractions include Universal Studios and the Singapore Zoo. The latter offers a nighttime safari which allows visitors to see nocturnal creatures hard at work and play.

With the third largest gambling market in the world, your Singapore trip planer might also include a visit to one of the city’s impressive casinos.

I read this book while Planning a trip to Ireland. and i needed something more general and less detailed like Lonely planet or other guides, that way i can plan the route, and do my research afterwards. so this book gave me to my surprise, great tips! and it gave me a great ideas for routes in Ireland. It display the main route from Dublin to Galway (very recommended) and it has allot of tips for some hidden places on the way. this book was written by multiple authors, just like many guide books.but this one felt like they knew what they were talking about, and shared their personal preferences, and revealed great places for walk and enjoying the country of Ireland. It also had great recommendations for B&B, and backpackers restaurants. this book will be around for the long run, and its no wonder. You can also view all my reviews here : mikes-road-planner

Italians Believe in Food and Family

If there is anything i know about Italy it is that the food and beverage are delicates ! i was looking for some food recommendations and got across this great summary of a food adventure in Italy:)

A Taste of Italy

I had heard the expression that entitles this post before I went to Sicily.  But, the Southern Italians really reinforced the point.  My roommate Chelsea has family that lives there, and they took care of us!  They went above and beyond, and they weren’t even closely related family.  Maria was the connection and is the sister of Chelsea’s uncle-in-law.  Did she let the distance in their relations dampen her hospitality?  Is Catherine ever leaving Italy?  The answer is: “no”!

Maria and her husband Vincenzo drove the five of us to and from their summer villa where they let us stay for the weekend.  It was a neat and cozy little house with an abundance of charm.  The view wasn’t too bad either.

On top of giving us their personal summer home, they had also stocked its kitchen.  The fridge was full of Italian meats and cheeses, along with apricots, nectarines…

Travel plans in Europe

As a senior traveler, i found there are a lot of great web sites that can help me to plan a trip. its so brilliant that once i’m in the map, i can click on various sites and i can view the wiki-travel info or the Wikipedia site in order to discover what things you might be interested in seeing. This means that if for example your planning a family trip, you can involve everyone in the family in the travel process. You can even break down the street view or add various reviews to the road travel planner area in order to help future visitors come up with a good plan. You get a full view of the area and what it has to offer. This also gives you a chance to alter your plans before you begin.

From start to finish as i was using these planning sites, I felt as though I always had someone on my side when it came to making choices.  I accessed the information during our trip, made adjustments and even added new sites. A travel system that is interactive is much more useful than a hard copy book or a static planning trips guide that is complicated to adjust. Every place we went we had a chance to discover something new and interesting, it was much more fun than a book.
