So now that the trip is done I get a chance to look back over it all. It was a great first adventure overseas I’ve decided because due to it being a Uni event we were forced to interact with many different facets of the countries life. We had a chance that you generally wouldn’t have traveling to engage with academics from many different fields as well as still explore the cultural aspects of Singapore. By staying on college at NUS we made friends with several students and added them to social networks so that if we ever go there again or them here we will have a contact that can steer us in the right direction.
After leaving the college several of the other students and myself stayed at a place called the Prince of Wales in Little India while we explored and waited out the time until it was time to go home. It was a great place as public transport was very close as well as lots of shopping for cheap electronics and clothes. As well as some of the friendliest and most helpful bartenders I’ve ever seen, if you’re ever in Singapore i highly recommend it.
The one thing I think I’m going to miss most about Singapore is the cheap amazing food. I literally don’t know how I’m going to be bothered to pay anything over $4 for delicious and healthy takeaway ever again.
