Armchair travel with kids

Raffles and Sugarpuff have chronic wanderlust in their DNA, so it’s a rare moment the tiny travellers aren’t dreaming of new adventures to far flung destinations.

Then imagine them stockpiling enough watery weaponry to arm a small country (Insert  the twangy guitars and whistles of ‘The Good, the Bad and the Ugly’ theme music here).

Sofitel Sentosa Singapore Resort with kids

It’s no secret that I am smitten with Singapore. Seriously, what’s not to like about a country whose unofficial national sports are eating, drinking and shopping?
