"Welcome to join me in my passion for travelling!" missbean's Profile
Hi fellow VTs!
I guess the 1st chapter of my homepage should start with introducing about myself. So here it goes:
Travelling! The board game, 'Risk' was the first game that really strike me as a child to get interest on the world map. In school, Geography was my favourite subject. Looking at the different colours, shapes, landscape and topography on the world map, always make me very happy. The world is so vast . I tell myself that I must make it a point to go to as many beautiful countries/places as possible.
The joy of travelling for me comes from being able to personally experience what many other travellers describe in travel guides and documentaries. I also enjoy interacting with people of different culture and countries.
I also love photography. I think photography and travelling goes hand in hand together. So whenever I travel, I am so glad that I am able to do 2 of my favourite hobbies at the same time!
My must-haves when I travel:
2. Camera, extra batteries & charger
3. Travel journal
Enjoy browsing my travel pages and leave any comments if u have. If u have any questions to ask about Singapore or the places that I have visited, feel free to contact me. I would be glad to answer them if they are within my abilities. Take care!
P/S:Should u need to use any of my pics,pls let me know.

July- Dec 2004:
After my graduation from the university in June 2004, I was able to get a job and allowed me to go Germany for a work training for 6 months. This allows me to go backpacking in Europe during my weekends and while I am on leave. I travelled alone many of the European cities too. I learnt a lot about myself during the lone trips. This is also the period where my love for travelling deepens and rekindled.
So far, I have been to :
Germany: Frankfurt, Wiesbaden, Mainz, Cruise along River Rhein, Rothenburg, Limburg, Koln,Heidelberg, Rheingau wine-growing towns (Walluf, Martinsthal,Rudesheim,Frauenstein etc). I am living in western part of Germany, near the River Rhein, hence you can see that I travelled widely in the cities/towns along the River Rhein. Munich,Berlin, Garmisch-Partenkirchen (skiing on Hausberg)
France: Paris, Strasbourg
Austria: Salzburg, Vienna
