Singapoor Thing 🍹🍹
Ok. We did do it. We wanted to be strong but could not resist the temptation of a true Singapore Sling at the world famous Raffles Hotel. 🙈
A little bit worried of getting into a tourist trap we avoided the well-known Long Bar where everybody seems to go and walked into the pretty impressive Billard Room half an hour before they closed it and just in time for the last order. ☝️
It turned out that the Billard Room was right now substituting for the Long Bar due to maintenance - tourist trap again.
After we ordered our drinks it did not take half a minute until we got them (with nothing of the delicate making process being revealed to our eyes and ears.)
Then the first sip exposed the touristiness behind the symbol: The drink was warm, watery and weak despite the fact we had even asked if it would be freshly mixed. 😱😱😱
Harmony-seeking as we are we just couldn't complain since it was past last order already. But then again the drinks cost as much as our hotel for a night. Luckily the waiter asked if everything was fine and so we ended up keeping him busy for a little longer. We got new drinks, that were cold at least.
Conclusion: Just don't. And if you do, laugh about it. 😅
A crowd favourite, and for excellent reasons (food, beaches, lush landscapes): Sri Lanka.
Here we have Lashini House in Tangalle, a 3-bedroom eco-design villa that overlooks the Indian ocean. This one is perfect for travellers that appreciate the beauty or architecture and design.
Book it on theluxenomad.com from USD 500++ a night.
Day 15 is finished and I am heading down the home stretch. The meals are now all vegetarian. For breakfast, I had a fruit plate with apples, pear, berries and Honeydew. Lunch was an Asian Coleslaw Salad, 1/4 of an avocado and vegetable soup with herbs. Dinner was Garlic Stir Fry Vegetables and a Baked Sweet Potato with olive Oil and Himalayan Salt. Everything was very good. My favorite on the menu for today, was the Garlic Stir Fry. The veggies were crisp and yet tender and the garlic added a great flavor. I would make this dish again. #loveveggies , #homestretch , #ultimatereset

It played around,
oh it danced,
Well It even spoke,
to maybe my soul,
leaving me in a trance,
That tasted like sweet magic.
