• Orchid Gardens

    The time spent in between going to museums, gardens and shopping in Singapore found us mostly poolside which was oh so relaxing, and a lovely break from the humidity and heat which seem to have kicked up since we were there on the first end of the trip. On our last day in Singapore we were not flying out till… [Continue Reading]

  • Gardens by the Bay

    Thirteen hours later and we landed back in Singapore to its hot and humid weather. Off come the jackets and jeans, and on the summery dresses and my hair up with the clips, I bought there as much as possible.  This leg of the trip was mostly a museum, and gardens visit one.

  • Borough Markets

    When we arrived back in London, I’ll be perfectly honest, Mama and I spent most of our time shopping, and we didn’t do anything too touristy.

Versailles; The Hall of Mirrors

This room is without a doubt one of the most famous rooms from the Palace of Versailles. And, for good reason, it is absolutely stunning. With Chandeliers hung across the full length and width of the hall, arched windows lining one side and mirrors covering every other space of spare wall, the Hall of Mirrors is something to be admired….

Versailles; The Gardens

I remember looking at a section of the Gardens at Versailles and thinking it was beautiful and large with sculpted greenery in a symmetrical pattern, it was one in a million and then I turned to my dad, and he pointed to the map showing me that is was only just a very, very small segment of the entire grounds…
