// MY NAME IS DANIELAnd after years of dreaming I've sold everything I own and set off on the open road. I've made this site as a sort of photo journal of my travels. The map shows where I've been (red), where I've stayed a month or more (yellow), and where I plan to go (white). And so, armed with little more than a backpack, a camera, and a dream, I now take the road less traveled by. So it goes.
After two years of living and traveling through out Asia, Singapore was my final stop before continuing on to Australia and Africa. I arrived in the morning, left my bags at the airport, and used the metro to explore the city for a few hours before returning to the airport and catching my flight Sydney. Singapore was founded in 1819 as a trading post of the British East India Company. When Malaysia was created in 1963 as an independent federation of several states, Singapore was one of those new Malaysian states--- however it broke from Malaysia two years later over ideological differences and became an independent country. Those differences revolved around issues of race, religion, and economics.
