I’m in Singapore for one more day. Tomorrow is home time. It’s hard to imagine that 6 months has gone by, and that I’ve seen and been through so much since then. It’s crazy to think that back then I was a kid who’d never been out of Australia, and 6 months later I’ve seen 3 other continents, 17 countries and almost 100 cities. That’s something.
So what have I been doing with myself in Singapore? Nothing really. I’ve been asleep for maybe three quarters of the time I’ve spent here, and that’s just fine by me. Getting past the jetlag and the lingering cold. That being said, I’ve been enjoying it here. The weather would be unbearable for me to live in, but it’s fine in short bursts. And what a relief it is to be able to walk around a city where everyone speaks English, where no one hassles you for money, and where cars drive on the left! And I’m the only white guy in sight: just like home.
Q: Does it freak you out to be surrounded only by Asians?
A: No, but it does freak me out to walk down streets full of Asian drivers.
Yeah, the traffic situation is pretty amusing.
So I’ve been thinking about how I’m going to wrap this whole thing up. I started this blog before the trip, but it seems to have evolved into a travel blog of sorts, and even though I didn’t intend this, it now seems the natural thing to close the lid on this one soon, and move on to making the next blog. So after a bit of R’n’R back home, I think I’m going to write a series of summary posts and then close shop on Magazine Theory. You know, like about trip highlights, favourite places, what I learned, those sorts of things.
So stay tuned a little longer folks, and thanks for reading.
