I created the “Travellers’ Tales” section to give other travellers an opportunity to talk about their travels. Today I would like to introduce you to Owen, a travel blogger from Singapore. He blogs at My Turn To Travel.
I would love to hear about your travels too. Go to “Travellers’ Tales” , fill in the quick questionnaire and email it to me with your blog links.
Read about Owen’s travels here,
1. Tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m Owen Ter and I’m from Singapore! Two months after graduating from university (Feb 2017), I flew off alone on a one-way ticket to South America and currently I am still travelling. Some say I’m crazy to fly all the way to the other side of the world without speaking the language, but I am having the best time of my life!
2. What is your earliest travel memory?
I think it was to the neighbouring country of Malaysia with my cousins. I remembered playing in a water theme park and eating good food.
3. Where was your last holiday?
I am still on my trip to South America. So far, it’s been 9 months and 9 countries. I hope to hit all 13 countries on the continent!
4. What was the best thing you did there?
It is impossible to think of one best thing. Trek to Machu Picchu, 3-days tour to Uyuni Salt Flats, hiking in Patagonia, stargazing on Easter Island…
5. What was your best holiday ever? Why?
The one I am currently still on! Though, I wouldn’t call it a holiday but a trip of a lifetime.
6. What is your favourite travel destination?
7. What must one do there?
Even though people say it’s touristic, Machu Picchu truly is a World Wonder.
8. Who is your favourite travel companion/s?
9. Name one item you must have when travelling.
My trusty selfie-stick that doubles as a tripod. It’s a must for solo travellers.
10. Your best travel advice?
Be flexible in your plans! Or rather, don’t plan at all. I’ve met so many people on my trip that recommend places to visit, that the original ‘plan’ goes out of the window.
11. The one place you want to visit before you die?
The summit of Mount Everest.
12. How can people connect with you?
Thank you, Owen , for sharing your fascinating travels with us!
