An Artist’s Odyssey – Singapore to Scotland 2023


AUGUST, 2023


Inspired by the BBC TV series “Race Across the World” I will be embarking on a journey starting from Singapore and ending back in my home in Alva, Scotland. Follow my journey with this blog and instagram with #singtoscot23.


After months of planning, we will start the journey tomorrow, arriving in Singapore and then travelling onward through Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, China, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Austria, Germany and France. I will be travelling with my keen companions Dad and Craig (for the first two weeks) and will be updating this blog as we journey through these areas.

Singapore – the starting line

As this is one of the largest trips I’ve undertaken post-COVID requiring many overland border crossings, I will also be sharing my experiences on how these were managed, the challenges along the way and any potential tips if others were to undertake this in the future.

As ever, I will also be documenting this trip with art and photography throughout! You can sign up to the Friday newsletter on the main blog page here which rounds up all the blog posts of the week every Friday and follow my progress on Instagram with the #singtoscot23.

Tomorrow, the journey starts!

I am immensely excited for the food that will feature during this trip!
