Fun fact: I have a bit of history with Singapore despite never being there before this trip. When I worked at Influence, I worked on a year-long campaign with the Singapore Tourism Board and Thomas Cook Media and Partnerships. So, despite convincing others to go visit Singapore I, myself had never been. I finally was able to visit a place I wrote so much about a few years ago and loved every moment of it.
Ya Girl Went On Holiday Which Meant All The Calories
Despite what many think, my life is not a permanent holiday. There is a difference between long-term traveling like Sean and I do and holidays. Which is why when we go on short weekend trips we treat it like a holiday. This allows us to switch off from work, justify spending a bit more money on food, experiences and just to have fun. I will admit, we get to go on holidays a bit more than the average person but when you are so close to so many incredible destinations you gotta embrace it! Plus being your own boss has gotta have its perks for all the long weeks and hours.
One of my favorite parts of being on holiday is, of course, the ability to indulge a bit. Long-term traveling means we stick to a budget but when on holiday we kinda just go for it. Though, I am such a prude when it comes to spending money whereas Sean is better about it. Together we balance each other out! Which is why Singapore though, not budget-friendly is an affordable place to go on the well-traveled path.
