Hi, I’m Aaron. Grew up in sunny Singapore before discovering the joy of traveling, exploring unfamiliar places and being within nature. I still hold my day job but try to do a couple of trips a year. I hope to share some of these amazing destinations so that you can enjoy them, be it in person or through the posts, and that’s what this blog is about.
Follow me as I hike and camp around the world! From the Arctic circle to desert valleys and beyond.
Dedicated to this sunny island I call home. There’s more to Singapore than the glitzy skylines and fancy gardens, read on to find out more!
My longest trip yet, spanning 50 days from Singapore to Moscow. That’s done but I suspect there’ll be part 2.
Over a hundred kilometre through the Swedish wilderness, above the Arctic Circle.
Exploring the ancient city and uncovering its secrets.
Scenes from Mars and nights under stars, with a hint of the Bedouin.
Spend a night next to a small lake surrounded by glaciers and mountains.
A walk through a desert valley unlike any other.
A visit to the last Shangri-la.

It had been awhile since my last multi-day hike. One planned in 2019 was cancelled due to ongoing protests, then Covid 19 came and I had another cancelled. After the post-Covid acclimatization trip to Melbourne and the Great Ocean Road, I felt ready to resume hiking again, but knew I was pretty out of shape. Heading back for the familiarity…
Here’s one almost a year late. A couple of days in Melbourne, from May 2022. Some ideas on how to spend 3 days in Melbourne, roughly how I did it (some slightly rearranged for better readability).
