Justy and Cally visit Singapore

Kingsley's Aunt and Uncle flew up from Sydney for a long weekend visit, they had not been in Singapore for about 20 years so it was fun to show them the modern amazing city that we call home.  A few highlights from the weekend were the long dinners at Wild Rocket, Indochine Super Tree and the Singapore Cricket Club.

Kingsley and I spent about 10 days exploring the Seychelles over New Years this year.  Here are a few of my thoughts from our trip.

One of my favorite things about the Seychelles was the beautiful color of the Indian ocean.  On a clear day, you can see at least three or four shades of blue in the water,  and the white sandy beaches are some of the most beautiful we have encountered in all of our travels.  The water was clear and full of colorful fish for snorkeling.

Our trip to Mauritius back in August helped me fall in love with Creole food and I’ve craved those amazing curries ever since. Although we enjoyed some beautiful meals in Seychelles,  for the most part we found the food to be incredibly overpriced.  Especially dining at any of the fancy resorts like Banyan Tree and The Hilton didnt really live up to our expectations.  Though we ate some delicious meals on our trip, we felt the value for food was much better in Mauritious. 

Overall we loved our relaxing holiday in the Seychelles and I'm so very thankful we were able to explore the island, but it is not necessarily a place that will remain high on our travel list to make a special effort to visit again.
