ICYMI: High Fives Around the World
By Team LAD
Wanderlust at its finest. One couple shared their affinity for adventure and each other with a travel video that has vagabonds everywhere planning their next trip. Couple Marie and Haakon are seen high fiving one another in a montage of scenic locales in Singapore – with cheerful music laid over the video to set the adventurous mood.
Known as an island city, Singapore is replete with serene bodies of water and vast vegetation, and the duo wasted no time documenting the different wonders within. The couple first joined hands in front of an iconic merlion, or sea lion, at the Marina Bay Sands. The fish body represents Singapore's origin as a fishing village when it was called Temasek, which means "sea town". The lion head represents Singapore's original name—Singapura—meaning "lion city" or "kota singa".
From the crystal blue view of the Marina Bay, the couple transcended to the lush green vegetation of the Singapore Botanic Gardens – one of the top tourist attractions in the entire continent.
