Raffles Singapore, named after Sir Stamford Raffles, the founder of Singapore, opened on 1 December 1887 as a 10-room hotel by the Sarkies Brothers. The hotel has since been a haunt of adventurers, movie stars, authors, and journalists.
Two of the famous English writers that I have known to have stayed here are Somerset Maugham and Rudyard Kipling.
This is one of the views from the ruins of one of the turrets in the Cabo de Rama Fort in Goa. It is a hauntingly beautiful place – serene and isolated. This is a must-visit spot.
Goa, a tiny state hugging the western coastline of India, is one of the most sought-after tourist destinations for its sandy beaches, delicious cuisine having a lot of Portuguese influence, and its nightclubs. And I have seen this side of Goa many times. Well, not many…just twice. So this time, my friends and I decided to visit the Goa that we rarely get to see. By the way, one of my friends is a native Goan, so that definitely helped!
Visiting the Flying Ship in Singapore!
