Tiwi Islands Tours – Art & Aboriginal Culture Tour From Darwin

Tommo Fun

Tiwi islands tours: This trip gave us a real insider’s view to the art, history and culture of a distinctly different segment of Australia’s aboriginal population. Smoke rituals, burial & marriage traditions and the opportunity to create your own Tiwi island art to take home. After spending so much time in Australia, coming to Darwin and the surrounding areas like the Tiwi islands, was a real eye opener on understanding …

Megsy Food, Food & Drink Tours, Food Experiences (Restaurants and Where To eat In...), Fun

No one looks back on their life and remembers the nights where they got plenty of sleep The plan was to only stay a few nights. Arrive in Budapest, see the sights, and then perhaps head off to see a bit of the Romanian countryside before our Eurail pass ran out. We had already been traveling for close to 2 months since leaving Essaouira Morocco. In that time we had: …

Megsy Food, Fun

“Visiting Barcelona is not just going to touristic places but discovering the hidden corners not listed in the travel guides” – SecretsOfBarcelona.com Things to do in Barcelona Spain I haven’t met a single person who has visited Barcelona, and not fallen in love with it. There is a vibrancy, a life in the air. In the warmer months, people are out in the streets eating and drinking, laughing with friends and family. …

Things to do in Morocco

Moroccan Hammam – Getting naked with strangers in Eranouk Hammam, Essaouira

Megsy Fun

I suppose, of all the countries in the World, Morocco would be one of the last I’d have expected to end up in a room full of almost naked women. Nudity or toplessness is the norm in a Moroccan hammam, and little foreign me was just going to have to embrace it… It’s not really the done thing in western cultures – bathing with others in a state of undress. …

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

Megsy Fun

Essaouira Morocco. The unsung hero of the country. It’s not the first place you hear about when people talk about Morocco, it’s far more laid back and it does not have the typical chaos you’d associate with places like Marrakech. 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 …

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 …

9 Photos to Inspire You to Visit Phnom Penh Cambodia

Megsy Photo Inspiration

Phnom Penh is the capital of Cambodia. It’s one of those capitals that travellers seem to feel the need to get in and get out – fast! But, there is a side to Phnom Penh other than the horrible history of the killing fields and genocide museums. This is a place where over 2 and a half million people live everyday, and have stories of their own. So lets took a look …

7 Silly but awesome reasons to visit South Korea

Tommo Photo Inspiration

Why do you choose to visit a country? Maybe you choose places based on which have the most history. The best tourist attractions. The most famous food (hell, I here you on that one!) But, there is another factor that should come into your travel plans decisions. Fun. This time last year we were in South Korea. It was a country we’d thought about visiting but it was not near …

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, …

6 Photos that will inspire you to visit the Borough Markets in London

Tommo Food, Photo Inspiration

A feast for the eyes, and the tastebuds. Borough markets will get your mouth watering. Sadly, you’ll be paying London prices… That said, you can pick up some good street food at an almost affordable budget, by UK standards. Prices around £5 ($9) to £10 ($18). The market is free to walk around though, so bring your own sandwiches and just enjoy the atmosphere. The Full market runs Wednedays to …
