About

up&adrift

A space that shows you how travelling doesn’t mean having to drown yourself in luxurious hotels and spas. The best way to see the world is to do it the natural way.

We’re Dara & Michelle, two creatives from Singapore. Like many lost souls out there, travel is a big part of our lives. Call it escapism if you must. This travel blog is nothing flashy or fancy, neither will you find recommendations for boutique resort and spas, BUT we can promise to share humble experiences, trustworthy recommendations and our memories from all over the globe.

*This space is hardly updated while we’re on the road, therefore most of the entries are posted after the trip is finished. It’s also not posted in chronological order but we still hope to share our experiences !

‘All the pathos and irony of leaving one’s youth behind is thus implicit in every joyous moment of travel: one knows that the first joy can never be recovered, and the wise traveler learns not to repeat successes but tries new places all the time.’ Paul Fussell

    Hey Dara! Your blogposts are really inspiring! Really makes me want to travel and see the world!

    Just wondering since you have travel to so many places and stayed alone, have you ever have any haunting experiences? Like those super natural kind? Kind of curious about it.. Would like to read about a post about such experiences if there is!

      Glad to hear you’ve enjoyed the articles, Elaine! 🙂

      To be honest, that’s something I never worried about. Besides, my mind is too busy being worried about more practical issues such as losing my passport, getting robbed, falling off a cliff, also because I don’t exactly believe in having the ability to see things like ghosts or whatnot. But going on the typical asian ‘pantang’ route, people usually experience things if they’re in a bad mood, or if they’re just really unlucky. Taking that in mind, if you hold a positive spirit (which you will have because you’re often happy when travelling), there’s no reason to fear such things! Besides, even living alone (be it in a hostel dorm or a guesthouse), it’s often crowded with good vibes and energy all around!

      I have had crazy experiences during my travels which I’ve written a little about but haven’t completed yet, though none relating the supernatural world. If you’re interested you can check back again soon or subscribe! 😉
