Last week, I was travelling between Chennai (madras) and Bangalore, fighting a sudden bout of viral which grounded me and my husband for a while and that is when the mail came by, adding a cheer. Backpacker , the blog has been selected by Singapore Tourism to feature the country against the backdrop of the Youth Olympic Games. I was asked if I would like to go to Singapore and that a fellow sports journalist from India would also be there , along with other members from international media. This was definitely a great surprise and a wonderful opportunity and I really jumped at it. Ive been to Singapore many times before and have been sponsored by the STB about ten years ago, when I was working for CNBC . They had launched their campaign then and I had directed and scripted a few episodes of the travel show Way to Go on Singapore. That was of course a decade ago and it was my second trip to Singapore. Ive gone a couple of times again after that , my last trip being a couple of years ago with my parents. I wonder what is it that draws me to to this country This trip if of course very special, as Ive earned it , thanks to the blog.I leave tomorrow and will be back with more travel stories. Until then..
