Welcome to ShinyVisa, a family travel blog by Derek and Nicole.
Our journey began during our university days at the National University of Singapore, where we met and discovered our shared passion for travel. From classmates to travel buddies and finally husband and wife, it’s been an incredible ride. Nicole hails from the enchanting “mountain city” of Chongqing, China, while I come from sunny Singapore. Our diverse backgrounds and cultures have given us a unique perspective on life and travel, which we love to share with each other and our readers.
ShinyVisa is our space to document and share our family travel experiences and family trip planning tips and guides. We believe that life is an adventure, and our mission is to inspire families to explore the world and create cherished memories along the way. Whether it’s trying out new restaurants, immersing in different cultures, enjoying nature walks, offering travel guides and budgeting tips, or exploring undiscovered destinations, we’re always on the lookout for exciting experiences to share with you.
Join us on our journey as we uncover the beauty of the world, one captivating story at a time. Let’s embark on an adventure together that goes beyond borders and opens our eyes to the transformative power of exploration.
