The Lost City of ATLANTIS

Atlantis is an island that was located in the Atlantic ocean. It is known to have submerged in the ocean. It was a Greek island and was known for its magnificent architecture. Some ancient writers viewed Atlantis as a fictional myth whereas others believed it to be real.

It is said that this island was situated in front of the straits which are by Ancient Greeks called the ‘Pillars of Heracles’. Most people probably believe that Atlantis got its name from being in the Atlantic Ocean, but some texts claims that it is the other way around. As the story goes, Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea, had five pairs of male twins with a mortal Atlantean woman named Cleito.

The god gave each of his 10 sons different portions of the island over which to rule. Gadeirus was the second-eldest of these sons. While he may have had a city in Spain named after him, it was his older twin, Atlas, who would have the glory of being the island’s namesake.

Atlantis is about 11,500 years old!

It was a wonderful, ancient Greek empire that managed to last long enough and then sink beneath the Atlantic ocean forever.

MY SINGAPORE TRIP

This article is about my Singapore trip. Singapore is a small country in Asia which has no specific cities. It is a very beautiful place and it is famous for many places like Universal Studios. I went to Singapore on the 23rd of December, 2017. Our flight was supposed to be in the evening but it got delayed by a few hours so we boarded the flight at night and we reached early in the morning. We stayed in a hotel called Holiday Inn. We got our room very late in the afternoon because there were air hostesses who needed rooms. I went to the receptionist and had a conversation which finally got us a room. Thanks to me! I almost forgot, in the flight, I realized that I got a Christmas present without even knowing. It was a book which was kept in my carry bag. I suspected that my father bought it!

In the evening, we went to a place called Gardens by the Bay. It is like a park with many activities for children. There were also billions and billions of gardens like- Olive Garden, Californian Garden, Cactus Garden, Mediterranean Garden and many more. There was also a Flower Dome and Cloud Forest which are inside  transparent domes. Right next to the place there is a beautiful bay where we took many pictures. Later at night, there was a Northern Lights show but before it started, it began to rain. We had dinner and went back to the hotel. The next 5 days, we had a lot of fun. We went to Sentosa Island where there is the Universal Studios, a huge mall, two beaches, a free water park which is so good, the famous wax museum-Madame Tussauds and again many activities. We also went to the southernmost point of Asia after which there is a sea which leads to Australia! We also saw the Merlion- a monument which has a face of a lion and a body of a fish or some mermaid. It was possible to go inside it.

We even saw a rainbow police station, an Art Gallery, the Parliament House, an aquarium, a show called Wings of Time and a very famous hotel called Marina Bay Sands. It is basically 3 buildings with some ship-like building on top of it. It looks really good. On our last day in Singapore, we went on the Singapore Wheel which is a huge Ferris wheel in which there are many glass compartments. We saw the whole view of Singapore and found out that it is also possible to see a little bit of Malaysia and Indonesia! This was one of the best trips ever. We went back home on the 29th of December.
