Many times, what makes one holiday trip more memorable than
another are the special moments that occur out of the ordinary. You could have
visited this place for the 10th
time but if something unique and
unexpected happens then, that’s where great travel stories stem from!
In fact, it doesn't matter where your travels have taken you
because I am pretty
sure each one of us has our fair share of travel stories
to tell. It could be as wild as taking a spontaneous trip
in Australia to having exotic street food in Istanbul or even watching a
show in Thailand (wooo I
like that and cannot forget that experience!).
Perhaps it's just the simple
joy of stumbling upon the perfect hipster joint in Seoul!
I’ve been blessed to have had my fair share of travel
experiences and of course, I’ve had some pretty memorable moments on these
trips! Traveling to see the world, different cultures and cities has really
taught me a lot and brought me many memories that will forever be embedded in
Like this one above; the pure joy on our faces having reached and
found the highly raved Jonah’s Milkshake in Boracay, after having walked from
one end of the beach to the extreme end on the burning sand under the scorching
sun! If it were available in Singapore, we would have just….rode a buggy to
another end of the beach haha. The strenuous walk made the first sip of the
Jonah’s Milkshake extremely satisfying. Imagine finally finding the joint with
toasted faces, sweat and sand stuck to the body then being able to sip the most
delicious and creamy milkshake we ever laid our hands on in that heat. Ahhhh pure bliss~
Here’s another unforgettable experience. First time trying
out the poisonous and deadly puffer fish in Japan which may cause death if its
not prepared properly by a trained master. Gulp. The things we do for
great-tasting and exotic food!
Lastly, here’s a shot from my VGY photoshoot on Nami Island.
It was no ordinary photoshoot though! I know you can’t tell from the picture
but the weather was at freezing 8 degrees! (Well, freezing for just chiffon.) I
had to maintain a relaxed face when I was actually shivering inside! But alas,
it was a great experience to remember and I would definitely do it again if I
Simply put, I love seeing Instagram-worthy shots of
unforgettable travel experiences posted by people from all over the world! And
I will always take time to visualize and relish the experience written in the
caption of every IG post.
