Exploring Singapore

It was 5 years ago this week that I found myself in Singapore. Stephanie and I were on a business trip that took us to the other end of the world, however it proved to be anything but work. After brief meetings and tours, we found ourselves making the most of our free time and had the opportunity to explore every corner of this island nation that interested us. 

From the Red Dot Design Museum to a night safari, from the Singapore Flyer to a river cruise, from the iconic Merlion to shopping on the popular Orchard Road, there was rarely a moment that we weren't out doing something. Our hosts treated us to amazing seafood dinners, nightlife, and drinks. We even had a full day on Sentosa Island, and got to check out the brand new Universal Studios Singapore, which had just opened a few weeks prior. 

What makes this trip to Singapore resonate in my mind is that everything was a bonus. I wasn't entirely sure what to expect when we went, but ended up being continually surprised. In the end, we accomplished the work that we'd gone there to do, and came away with countless stories and an incredible experience. It's a trip that I still reminisce about today, and as proof of that, I went back through my snapshots and videos to put together some of my favorites for this post.
