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 …

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 …

Unexplored Greece: Discover life beyond the islands

We journeyed through less touristy, unexplored Greece to …
