Meagen Collins Fun Leave a Comment

Don’t take any old one of the Litchfield national park tours… Get the most out of your trip and tours from Darwin by seeing a lot more of the region. We opted for a 4 day itinerary with Adventure Tours Australia (Part of the Intrepid Group) which included not just visits and swimming at spectacular and unspoiled waterfalls in Litchfield national park, but also: Mary River Cruise Trip to Kakadu …

Meagen Collins Travel Tips Leave a Comment

As I climbed into the front seat of a ride simply called “Buzzsaw” it occurred to me that I had no idea what this ride actually did. I didn’t watch it before joining the queue, I had my Ride Express pass in hand so I practically ran up and jumped on. It wasn’t until I was tightly strapped in and the ride started to take me up…..up 15 storeys that I realised that I …

Things to Do in Bucharest – Food Fun Adventure in Bucharest Romania

Meagen Collins Food, Fun Leave a Comment

Bucharest Romania is not really a place that is on most people’s european travel itinerary, and I honestly can’t figure out why. At a glance it might look like any other post communist city, but it really is so much more than that. It is a place that had me in awe of the stunning buildings, the vast gardens and the friendliness of the locals every single time we stepped outside …

Food Fun Adventure: Barcelona Province (Day trip from Barcelona)

Meagen Collins Food, Fun Leave a Comment

 When heading to Catalonia Spain, there seems to be only one place on everyone’s minds – Barcelona. But, don’t miss out on what the rest of Barcelona Province has to offer. I know. Barcelona is kick-ass. But, let’s just take a step back and look at the downsides of BCN. It’s super touristy, and you can’t move anywhere without being offered some sort of tour, or meal special. In fact you can’t really …

9 Tips For Surviving Mongolia (Video)

Tommo Fun, Video Blogs Leave a Comment

As one of the least densely populated countries in the world, Mongolia can be quite a culture shock for travellers who have been accustomed to things like beds and hot water for most of their lives. Epic wilderness, untamed beauty and challenging travel experiences are par for the course when going trans-Mongolian. Mongolia offers a real sense of freedom from civilisation but navigating the country independently can be both dangerous, …

How to cross the Bulgan Border: Khovd (Mongolia) to Urumqi (China)

Tommo Fun, Travel Tips 6 Comments

Mongolia’s western border at Bulgan is not frequented by foreigners – but it is certainly open to us! Find out how we made the crossing from Khovd to Urumqi in August 2013. Similarly to when we arrived through Erlian & Zamiin-uud in the east, border corossing between China and Mongolia are not straight-forward, you just have to put the time in and plod through the process – expect your passports …

Meagen Collins Fun 4 Comments

Heading out into the Mongolian wilderness you never know what you’re going to get. We knew that things could be rough but this time around we found ourselves face to face with an eagle who looked like he could give human flesh a go and on the receiving end of a family feast difficult to stomach (because it mostly was stomach, lambs stomach!)…..here’s what happened. How it Began One of …

How NOT to Cross central Mongolia overland – Moron to Olgii.

Tommo Fun Leave a Comment

20 hours broken down and stuck in the Gobi Desert was not on our itinerary… and yet our dilapidated mini-van felt that it should be. Actually our van – I named it “Turquoise Disaster” – had quite a few opinions about travel that were contrary to our own. Its propensity to fill the cabin with petrol fumes. Its willingness to open its own windows, allowing sand and dust to engulf …
