Singapore & Sumatra

Over the last couple of weeks I had the pleasure of catching up with relatives during a visit to Singapore and Sumatra. As always, the trip was fabulous and provided plenty of eye candy for a photographer. Needless to say we didn’t even come close to having enough time to do everything we wanted to do.

Aside from really enjoying catching up with relatives my highlights included:

  • meeting a great number of rather interesting individuals in both Singapore and Sumatra
  • being a guest of the Dutch ambassador and staying at the residence
  • partaking in a cruisy sailing race near Singapore’s Changi airport
  • laughing uncontrollably when witnessing the wild traffic in Medan
  • shaking hands with semi-wild Orang Utans
  • being challenged as a vegetarian in Sumatra (despite our very helpful guide’s efforts, there’s only so many omelettes one can eat)

Of course, such a short write up doesn’t really do justice to the wonderful experiences I had along the way. Some of the extraordinary and incredible encounters along the way are well deserving of their own account. All the people, scenery, architecture and the myriad of photographic opportunities…

I shall return.
