GREEN/ Singapore

Singapore was declared to be Asia’s greenest city this year. Well done!

The independent Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) examined the environmental performance of 22 major Asian cities in eight categories: energy and CO2, land use and buildings, transport, waste, water, sanitation, air quality and environmental governance.

This fact reminded me of some pictures I took there. I was fascinated by the cohabitation of Nature and skyscrapers.

NATURE/ Exotism

Nature always strikes me, especially when I am travelling in what we could call an “exotic place”.
Here are some pictures I took during my stay in Israel.

Let’s first have a walk in Ramat Hanadiv, a natural gem dedicated to the memory of Baron Edmond de Rothschild. Situated between Zikhron Ya’akov and Binyamina, this place is a must see for whoever enjoys the beauty of Nature and wants to know it better (don’t miss the fragrance garden).

An exploration of the charming Nahlaot’s neighbourhood in Jerusalem offers a diversity of flowers and plants that will please any visitor’s eyes.

Vermont

I had a great time in Vermont, people are super friendly and nature is all around. There’s a back-to-nature vibe as you drive along the farms. Burlington (the biggest city in Vermont) is a nice town, with charming pedestrian streets and a great view over lake Champlain.
