Celebrating 1 year on the road

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.

  1. Finding a roommate is a great hack, but if you are already in Singapore, you are still able to go to the top of the MBS. You can buy a ticket there for around 20S$ which is good for the Observation Deck, so you are not allowed to use the pool or to enjoy the 25S$ beers in the bar, but you can walk around and just admire the view.
    And since this blog is about hacks, here’s one. If you are confident enough and look decent, you can just walk to the elevators when guests are about to use it, and just go with them. Still no pool and bar, but at least it’s free ;)

    Great blog Enikő, keep it up!
