Megsy Food, Fun

Surrounded by the southern Carpathian mountains and nestled in the heart of Transylvania, Brasov is the place where Romanians go when they want a holiday.

A trip to Budapest – Food, Fun, Adventure!

Tommo Food, Fun

Goulash and cabbage. That’s what my 1990’s geography education had instilled in my brain to expect as the highlight of Budapest. Whatever cold war government propaganda had filled those classroom textbooks, even if there was some truth to it… It’s not true anymore and it massively misses the mark on what has now become my favourite city in Central Europe. The stereotypical goulash, cabbage and other classics are there in …

Essaouira Morocco – Food, Fun & Adventure (Our Essaouira Guide)

If you want a completely different Morocco experience and to feel a lot more like a local, this is currently the place to do it. But get here soon, the …

It’s funny how after so many years of travel, a place can still take you by surprise… Walking the bustling, cafe lined streets of Prizren, I realised that there is still so much to explore in this world. Undiscovered destinations, even in Europe. We had to get out of Greece and the EU because my Schengen visa had expired – boo. As winter was fast approaching we decided to head towards …

Unexplored Greece: Discover life beyond the islands

Megsy Fun

Crystal blue water, white homes with blue painted doors and shutters… Doing a quick google images search, it’s hard to believe there is more to Greece than picturesque Islands like Mykonos or Santorini. Beautiful they may be. But, they are only one side of Greece. There is yet more to this ancient country than the well known Mediterranean Islands and the Acropolis in Athens. We journeyed through less touristy, unexplored Greece to …

We like to gamble when we travel. Destination roulette. We choose a location that is barely featured in online guides and that we don’t know anyone who has ever been there. We’ll end up somewhere that is way off the regular tourist trail… And, Sometimes it’s rubbish. But, sometimes, we discover a hidden gem. During our 2.5 months in India, we covered a lot of ground. From Amritsar & Shimla in …
