Random Bits of Singapore

Our journey in Singapore is now over and because I want to start telling you about all my other adventures elsewhere here is a collection of all the random pictures I've collected from Singapore that I didn't have time to put into their own post.

1. HAZE: that one time in Singapore when the haze was so bad that the sun looked like a dot of red blur and the city resembled a post-apocalyptic movie.

2. HAJI LANE: the perfect place for a cup of coffee and walk around

3. STREET ART: which is rare, but refreshing when you see it

4. FOOD: one of the most telling things about a culture, and Singapore has a lot of cultures to learn about (meaning a lot of food to try!)

5. MACRITCHIE: a place to unplug and bond with nature

Since our journey in Singapore has ended (for the time being), we have moved onto the US for a few months!
I can't wait to show you pictures from everything we've been up to.

Wake Boarding in Indonesia

Time for an update.

1. I'm back in Ukraine!!
Unfortunately, every time I move locations bloggy tends to get put on the backburner.

2. I think I've finally settled into a rhythm here so I'll be again posting regularly!
I'm going to attempt to catch you up on all my adventures up until now with multiple posts a week so stay tuned!

3. And I've also finally linked my Instagram [redqueenyuliya] to my Facebook Page so if you want to continue to see all the photos I'm posting from around the world and like being the first to know where I am and what I'm doing make sure you like the Fb page.

And now, the blogpost.

I have a group of friends from touch rugby that go wake boarding every week, if not more.
I've wanted to go with them for a while, but I always seemed to have something else planned.

Finally as my time in Singapore was nearing an end, I finally realized I have yet to go to Indonesia!
So one public holiday I cleared my schedule and off I went!

We went to Batam Cable Park in Indonesia (or BCP for short).

But lucky for you, if you're currently in Singapore and want to check it out without the hassle of booking anything, I suggest you meet up with my friends.

You get to Indonesia via ferry, which takes approximately 1 hour.
And then a quick shuttle bus.
And BCP takes care of all your passport and visa handling while you ride!

Here's a little look at the park.

And a look at all the fun you can have if you go:

Make sure you wait to catch the last ferry back and relax while watching the beautiful sunset over Batam.

Next up, a quick summary of Singapore, and then onto US adventures!

Aerial View of Mt. Fuji

Flying back to Singapore I had an amazing view of Mt. Fuji.
You can even make out some of the footpaths completely covered in snow.

If you follow my Instagram or Facebook page, you already know we're currently in the USA!

But before I start catching you up on our adventures here I've got one more post to come from Singapore and another from Indonesia, so make sure you follow along!

Soba, Pop-Up Food Stalls and Night Hanami

I love trying new foods.
And Japan was a fantastic place to do just that.

So far I've had sushi and matcha.
And my very good friend said I needed to try soba before I left.

So one cloudy Saturday morning, I bundled up, grabbed an umbrella and headed out to try whatever this soba was with her.

Turns out it's buckwheat noodles, and this place makes them from scratch when you order!

After lunch we met up with another friend and went cherry blossom viewing in the Imperial Gardens.

Almost without thinking we stumbled on Yasukuni and lo-and-behold there was a street food affair going on!

Full and happy we went wandering towards a train and found ourselves walking through a spring hanami wonderland at night.

Considering this was my last full day in Japan, I'd say it was a day very well spent.

Tomorrow I have an epic aerial view of Mt. Fuji and then we're off to another country!
