Think UK food sucks spotted dick? This article might change your mind.

Megsy Food, Food & Drink Tours

There is plenty of fun poked at UK food. But is it really that bad? And what the hell is “UK food” anyway? Growing up in Australia I had heard plenty about the motherland – England. My grandparents migrated in the late 50’s, and much of Aussie and British culture is honestly very similar. But, there are aspects that are very different. I had heard many stories of the cold winters, the …

Our best and worst value travel from 2014

Tommo Fun

What experiences were really worth the price tag in 2014? This is about value for money. Best quality for the lowest price. Value is that balance point in the middle. You can get a 4 hour train ride across India for $2… but you’ll be crushed in a sweaty box like cattle. That’s not value for money. That’s just cheap. Flying from London to Athens for $35 in a comfortable, …

10 Foodie Photos To Inspire You To Visit Emilia Romagna, Italy

Megsy Food, Photo Inspiration

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Italy? Food. Ok I’ll admit that’s also the first thing that usually comes to my mind in any country we visit… But Italy is different. Just the sheer thought of eating locally made pasta, freshly cooked pizza. The light, fluffy gelato. It’s enough to get anyone drooling. But we are going to take it to the next level. …

Prizren: The Best Value European Destination You’ve Never Heard Of

Prizren: The Best Value European Destination You’ve Never Heard Of

Megsy Fun

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 …

Greek Food Porn: 7 Irresistible Dishes & 1 Fetish Plate

Tommo Food, Food Guides (What To Eat In...), Photo Inspiration

The smell of desire lingers in the air. But, it’s not sweat and pheromones. It’s the scent of meat grilling. Of cheese frying. As the kitchen door swings open, blood pumps faster through your veins. Could the waiter be bringing your food? As the many courses arrive in sequence, your tastebuds tingle with possibility. Pure food lust takes over as Greek Food Porn teases both your eyes and your imagination. …

How to do Paris

How to do Paris when your broke as f@#k

Megsy Travel Tips

It’s no secret that Paris is an expensive city to visit. Actually it was recently listed as one of the 10 most expensive places for a city break, coming in a close second to London. So why the hell, you might ask, would Five Dollar Traveller go anywhere near Paris? This seriously can’t be a budget destination to visit? In answer to the question: 1. Hello! It’s Paris – who …

How to explore the real Tuscany: by bike

Megsy Fun

There is a reason about 14 million people visit Tuscany, Italy every year. Unique countryside and a culinary tradition that lives up to it’s thousands of years of history… Not to mention, Tuscany is the home of Chianti wine. We believe, if you visit somewhere by car, bus or train, you often miss something. That sense of really being in a place. Inside a glass and metal bubble, you just don’t connect with …

Love Parma ham? Your world is about to get much tastier

Megsy Food, Food & Drink Tours

The Italians have been holding out on us! While they have been happily exporting Parma ham to the world, they have been keeping a secret. A secret that all you meat eaters, and ham lovers of the world will want to know about… There’s another ham! Yes, I can hear your gasps of shock and see your instantaneous puddles of drool, at the idea. So, let me explain more. Cured ham …

Discover the secrets of Italian cuisine, in Florence

Tommo Cooking Classes, Food

I never used to order margarita pizza. Something about only putting 2 ingredients on a pizza makes me think “How Boring” and “What a waste of pizza base”. Surely, the cheese and tomato is the foundation for the other toppings? Surely, the pizza is not finished until more is added? But, our recent trip to Italy sort of screwed up all my pizza perceptions. In a good way. The Italians …
