The clean city of Singapore

Dear Readers, During my brief visit to Singapore I was taken away by their impressive dedication they have towards maintaining a clean and eco-friendly environment within their ever-growing city. They have huge parks, particularly "Gardens by the bay", which is home to their supertrees and huge glass buildings that house rare species of millions of plants from around the world. These buildings both help with preservation and help raise awareness to their visitors the importance of valuing the rarities of nature.   Inside the cloud forest botantical garden,  home to thousands of plants and the worlds largest indoor waterfall [...]

It's safe to say Bali [...]

Sri Lanka

I've been away volunteering in Sri lanka, working with both elephants and teaching english to 4year olds! Its been the most incredible experience although being vegan out there had its challenges! I stayed in Am balangoda, a  small costal town famous for its devil masks, located near places such as Hikkaduwa, Mirissa and Bentota which are far more tourist orientated and feature beautiful beaches. I [...]
