    Heck no. I would always bring my portable fan and try to wear light clothes whenever I'm there cause my goodness, the heat!

    Yeah that's true. So basically the lesson is always bring your umbrella even when it looks like it's not gonna rain, cause it will.

    I'm actually from SE Asia as well, right next to Singapore but thankfully I live in the higher area of the city, so the weather here is pretty chill & windy.

    One thing I hate about Singapore is the weather though. You could have the hottest & sunniest morning ever in your life and all of a sudden the rain would start to pour heavily in the afternoon.
    You are kidding me! I LOVED the weather. But then again, I compare it to Europe.
    There are so many rainy days here without hot/sunny mornings.

    Would love to see it again.

    Yeah and actually locals go there as well regularly for leisure or just to grab some food or something or even to go on a date. They basically treat it as a giant mall that happens to have airplanes in it.

    So much for travelling in 2021. There are some other European countries I'd like to visit and return to. I'd also like to visit the Oceania countries.

The expedition was arranged via poseidonexpeditions . We had a small ship. It turned out to have lots of advantages over a big ship. It allowed us to have maximum time ashore and enjoy the greatest variety of landing sites. So if you are in search of something really exotic I strongly advise to head off to Antarctica
    It is funny but the other day I watched a great vid by Victoria Wodar, a her travel blogger, about her trip to Antarctica. She says it is worth it!

    Changi Airport is something else. I've been to Singapore like 5-6 times yet there still a lot of parts of the airport that I haven't explored yet. They have a freaking movie theater, a entertainment deck, a swimming pool, a cactus garden, a waterfall, shopping centers, a butterfly garden, etc. all inside the damn airport that you might wanna consider spending your whole trip there.

    I'd love to go back to Turkey. I had such an incredible time. Cappadocia and Istanbul changed my life.

    I did the Ibiza clubbing holiday five years ago and LOVED it - couldn’t hack more than five nights though, it’s exhausting being out till 8am every night. Visited Space, Pacha and DC-10 - the West End is quite chavvy and mainstream but very cheap.

    You can also do what Spartan did and have a much more chilled experience on the other side of the island. It’s quite a versatile island.

    I went a few years ago and enjoyed it. Wouldn’t have it on my must-visit list but still nice. I stayed on the east side where the old town was. We ventured to the west side where San Antonio is (the clubbing centre) for a day and it was okay if that’s your scene.
    I do find all the Spanish islands almost mundanely similar though (Balearics, Canaries) but everyone’s travel experiences are so unique.

    I rented an apartment for a month in Barcelona right after college - my graduation gift to myself - probably in the top three of places I've been to. Hopefully, you can make it there once this is all over.

    Trying to decide if I will even be able to do a road trip this summer. Was planning on going to a national park in Texas - that should provide for lots of social distancing, right?

    I’ve never been to mainland Spain, which is weird as I’ve been to most other countries in Europe - even all the Balkan ones - but it was for a bachelorette party with me and 12 women.

    I don’t expect to be able to go on any holidays at all this year in all honesty, which is a shame. Travel is such an enriching hobby.

    I cannot see travel being opened up at all this summer. I mean once you start putting millions of people back together in airports, planes and buses it will be impossible to control the spread of the virus. Unless the world just decides, hey it's out there, travel at your own risk. Strange times.

    A friend of mine was to go to Austria for a one week holiday with her parents, husband and children. But the area is closed down. Now she is off to France.

    Any of you still travelling despite of the corona virus?
