My Travel Story

Hi I'm a 21 year old female from Singapore and I earn $8/hr which is about £4/hr despite having a Diploma. This means that I only pocket about SGD$890 (About £445) each month from my 5days/week job. (Due to my 20% CPF contributions to the Government)

My partner is 20 and he is still in his final year of a Diploma. He works part-time and earns about SGD$200-$290 (About £145) in a month.

This does not do justice to our dream of travelling around the UK as we still have yet to pay for our own expenses. With this in mind, We're here to seek help from anyone who is willing to help contribute to our Dream Vacation.

Why UK?
Being raised with the education system of the U.K has made us extremely curious. We would like to have a first-hand expreince of their culture and way of life.
Also, many of our friends who are well-off have been given the opportunity to further study there while we can't even afford to even visit them. ):

What would this trip Mean to us?
It means a lot for us to meet our friends to learn and observe the way they have lived life for the past few years since we weren't given such opportuinities. This would help us learn what it means to be fully independant and learn the UK culture through the locals.

Is this Urgent?

Yes, well moderately. We have time constraints due to National Service thus, now is our ONLY CHANCE. 

Why can't we do this in the Future?
Singapore is a competitive country and people our age are already thriving in businessess while we still have yet to complete our education and figure out our ambitions. We dont have time to waste after completing our education. Also, we never know if we will ever be paid enough for such vacations.

Where would the Funds go?
The airfare itself cost far more than what any of us earn in a month so it will be prioritized to the airfare first then hopefully, accomadation. 


We are striving to make our dream vacation come true in all legal and ethical methods we can think of. It would be beyond lovely if you could help us even if it's a dollar. 

We hope our dreams come true!
Thank you for your kind attention and help! <3
