But regardless of the destination, I more likely than not to be equipped with a backpack.

Singapore won year-long bragging rights at the announcement that we’ve clinched top spot on Lonely Planet’s Best In Travel 2015. It beat Namibia, Lithuania, Nicaragua, Ireland, Republic of Congo, Serbia, The Philippines, St Lucia and Morocco for pole position. Personally, I would have awarded Namibia and Republic of Congo tied first positions. But that decision […]
