Eating Starfish – on a stick! Wangfujang market, Beijing. (Video)

Tommo Food, Tommo-Eats-Something-Terrible, Video Blogs

TOMMO EATS SOMETHING TERRIBLE. For weird food eaters, Wangfujang Night Market in Beijing is well known as a culmination of many of China’s stranger “delicacies”. This maybe true, and if you have a large and frivolous wallet then perhaps you can afford to sample them all. Unfortunately we don’t, so I chose one of the cheaper options, Starfish (20 yuan – $3.75), and will have to come back to other …

Sex Organ Soup (Hong Kong) – Eating Testicles, Penis, Scrotum & Labia! (VIDEO)

Tommo Food, Tommo-Eats-Something-Terrible, Video Blogs

A mouth full of cock is not normally my first thought before heading out for breakfast but apparently in Hong Kong a lot of people savour the opportunity to enjoy chewing on bovine chode prior to 11am. Originally this started out as a simple opportunity to swallow some testicles but after we arrived at the restaurant it turned out that for about $11 I could actually enjoy multiple sex organs. …

Eating Whole Deep Fried Pigeon inc. Head & Organs

Tommo Food, Tommo-Eats-Something-Terrible, Video Blogs

TOMMO EATS SOMETHING TERRIBLE. People eat pigeon in western society, nothing terrible about that, but generally the meat would be presented in a pleasing and non-controversial way… Not so in Hong Kong. The deep fried head is placed delightfully on top of the rest of the meat and if you are lucky – I was – you’ll get an internal organ surprise left inside the rib cage too! Its somewhat …

The Pub-less Pub Crawl – Georgetown Penang (VIDEO)

Tommo Booze, Video Blogs

Drinking in Malaysia is an expensive affair. This creates some problems for us, the Five Dollar Travellers: We like a beer at the pub and we like to pub crawl but in Malaysia we can’t afford it! Solution? Pub crawl the convenience stores and sneak into a few venues with booze! So first of all, the title of this post is a partial lie – we do end up in …

Tommo Video Blogs

Our 3 day Moto-trek from Kyaukme in Burma’s Shan state was one of the best experiences we had during our whole month travelling through Myanmar. Dogged by storms and some of the worst roads in the world (“Road” is a poor word to describe them) we powered through and got to homestay with real Palaung people in the mountains, eating home cooked food, learning about their culture and enjoying a …

Eating Pig Organs Hotpot (Pyin oo Lwin, Myanmar) (Video)

Tommo Food, Tommo-Eats-Something-Terrible, Video Blogs

TOMMO EATS SOMETHING TERRIBLE. This strange looking street food option appeared at many day & night markets all over Burma. Especially easy to find in Mandalay and Yangon, we ran into this particular vendor, amongst many others, in Pyin oo Lwin at the central night market (4pm – 8pm). The main part of the meal is a mix plate of pig organs and we’ve seen it served in two different …

The disappointing truth about Inle Lake (With Video)

Tommo Fun, Video Blogs

Inle lake is one of Burma’s biggest draw cards, a top tourist attraction. The scenic beauty of the lake itself is undeniably a must-see when visiting Burma, so why did I have such a sour taste in my mouth by the end of my 4 nights at Inle lake? I don’t want to ruin this destination for you, in retrospect it was worth the horrible bus ride to get there, …

Pub Crawl Brisbane, Australia

Pub Crawl Brisbane – (With Video & Map)

Tommo Booze, maps, Video Blogs

Greetings drinkers! Why pub crawl Brisbane? When we first moved here we weren’t convinced that this was really a city of exciting pubs… Happily, Brisbane has changed. There are a few mainstays that have been around forever, the real excitement though is in the burgeoning craft beer scene which has only very recently exploded all over the city. On this crawl we visit a spectrum of options, 9 top pubs and some honourable …

Barossa Valley vs Mclaren Vale: Two Wine Regions Seen Two Different Ways (With Video)

Tommo Booze, Fun, Video Blogs

Wine. Its the reason for a grape’s existence; the hope that it will one day grow and end up being squished into delicious oblivion. Actually, its one of the reasons modern society exists as it does: The amount of ancient trade routes that led to cultural interactions, sharing of technology etc. in part due to cultures that couldn’t grow good wine wanting a piece of the Mediterranean action… and also because drunk …

  We had the perfect plan, travel to the Barossa Valley wine region in South Australia, stay in budget accommodation and get around using the cheapest possible methods: busses, trains and bicycles. This was so we could save on the overall trip and spend more on wine……little did we know mother nature had a little something up her sleeve to disrupt our plans!

We head out to Ayers Rock in search of the best way to see the Australian Icon on a budget. Staying at the campground and eating from the supermarket we see Uluru the cheapest way we can! Uluru is one of the most famous landscapes in the world and any trip to Australia is not complete without a visit… but it is a little pricey due to its location, in …
