  • Camping Site III: Switzerland

    Hallo, das wird eine kurze sein! (this is going to be a short one =).

    Switzerland is an amazing country. Beautiful Alps are practically right at your doorstep. When we there in mid Oct, it was so cold, that the tips of the alps were covered with snow. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery of lakes and mountains, especially, the one that was close to the glass-blowing center, Glasi Hergiswel. It was breath-taking! Lake Zurich was another beautiful place to enjoy. Awesome view, really really nice, with swans too! =)

  • Camping Sites I: London and France

    Now staying in campsites may not have crossed my mind unless for my wife. The thing about camping is that, it is less expensive and you basically pay for what you use. For example, you will pay for your tent, your car or caravan, the number of campers, internet, usually they come up to about 20-30 pounds per night, depending on the popularity of the campsites. This is considerably cheaper has compared to paying so much for the hotel stay which could bulk up to about 100-150 pounds per night. In our case, we bought a 4 man family tent (I think it is luxurious for us), sleeping bags, warm clothes and accessories which amounted to about 450 pounds in total from Decathalon and Go outdoors. Well, the good thing is we get to keep our tent and go easy on our expenses for our hotel stays. In total, we spend about 3,700 pounds for our month trip across 4 countries. Staying in a campsite was economically sound and for a change, nearer to nature and fun!!

  • Driving on Difficult Road and Conditions

    Driving was really challenging. Especially, when you have never done this type of cross border, terrain, environment type of driving before. Well, there is always the first time! =) We drove on mountainous regions, without street lights, wet weather, farm roads, roads with no lanes (italy!). The roads we went on were totally new to us. Since we were so used to left hand driving, having driven in Singapore and United kingdom. Life was a bit tricky when we hit france, but its not that difficult to pick up right hand driving. And France is a great place to 'warm-up' before we hit Italy!! Just have to KEEP RIGHT and watch out for the round abouts!

Vijay Ramalingam and Grace Chew were born and married in Singapore, and blessed with two lovely kids. We have always enjoyed traveling and have made numerous travels individually and together as a family. After mid-career, we decided to have a change in our professional lives. We wanted to see the world, experience and appreciate different cultures and make new friends across the globe. We wanted to discover new things and share ideas. We then quit our civil service professional career, sold away all our possessions and packed our life in a suitcase. Just then, Vijay has been blessed to do his postgraduate studies in Sheffield, UK. We are now enjoying the changes in our life!. Read more...
