I remember the day I set off on my first solo adventure to Russia. I was excited about what the future holds for me. During the year I feel like I changed a lot. I became independent, more open minded and self confident.
I wanted to celebrate and spend my “anniversary” to remember all the things I achieved and all the people I met. I happened to spend that day in Singapore. I guess you know where this is going. That’s right… I decided to go to Marina Bay Sands Hotel.
Even 1 night there is just crazy expensive, but it’s not like I’m in Singapore every day and I celebrate my 1 year anniversary on the road. Still I don’t like wasting money, so I searched for a room mate on couchsurfing. I found Abishake, who is a really nice guy, and we could share the room, expenses and experience.
I don’t usually go to hotels. I always stay in hostels, do couchsurfing or homeexchange. So being there was a big deal for me. I mean that view from the room, the huge shower, getting towels and soap was just amazing. I could get use to it pretty fast.
Oh and of course the pool…the whole reason I wanted to stay in the hotel. I can’t imagine going to Singapore and not having a swim there. I saw pictures of it, but being there is just a completely different experience. It’s magical.
I practically spent all day there, swimming, sunbathing, relaxing, enjoying the view. The good thing is that there are some hot tubs as well on the other side with a view to the ocean and Garden by the Bay, so you really have it all.
Enough of the talk, let the pictures show you why I’ll never forget this day.
