Orangutans at Sepilok Rehabilitation centre, Borneo

Where can I see wild orangutans in Borneo? (Hairy Orange version of me)

Tommo Fun

  The Orang Utan (Literal translation “man of the forest”) is native to Borneo, one of only two areas in the world you can still see them wild in their natural habitat. It was the rainy season, but with no rain in sight we knew we’d hit the jackpot…. Where to See Orangutans   We are in Sandakan, Sabah, the north-east corner of Malaysian-Borneo at the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation centre. …

Crocodile Kiss

Kissing a Live Crocodile: For real! (Thailand)

Tommo Fun

FUN FOR A FIVER. Crocs are not exactly tameable… They just react. When the croc trainers invited members of the audience to “kiss” a crocodile I have to say I was slightly dubious… but what the hell, sounded like a good photo op.   Funnily, no one else in the audience volunteered for this experience, I couldn’t help feeling they were all thinking “Stupid white guy…” They led me into …

Feed crocodiles with a fishing line!

Tommo Fun

FUN FOR A FIVER This is about as close to “it might as well be free” as you can get. Basically a big green pond full of crocs… they give you a fishing rod and a bucket of chicken bones and you swing the food out to the crocs and try and coax them to eat it…… ……”Try” is the appropriate word here, unless you get there first thing in the …

Where can I ride Elephants Bareback? Chiang Mai Elephant Camp, Thailand

Megsy Fun

I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to spend so much time with these majestic creatures. We went the whole hog with this experience… We are going bareback on the “Mahout” Elephant training adventure!  Read about how we learnt to command the elephants to our whims, take them for their daily bath and then get them muddied up again – because they love the mud bath. We overnight at The Chiang …

Ride the ducks in Bangkok!

Tommo Fun

   FUN FOR A FIVER.  Remember when you were a kid and you could go to the local lake and ride on the paddle boats?? This is old school entertainment at its best! You may still be able to do this back home, but likely you’ll be charged through the nose for it… however, in Bangkok of course, its super cheap! And instead of just seeing a few fish in the lake …

Erawan Waterfalls, Tier 2

Want to see amazing waterfalls near the River Kwai? Erawan Waterfalls & Death Railway Museum

Tommo Fun

. Erawan Waterfall Kanchanaburi Before the Death and gloom of the Railway museum, we opted to visit what is described as the best waterfall system in Thailand, and for my money I’d say it might have been one of the best in the world. Obviously there are epic water falls (such as Niagra, Victoria) there are super high waterfalls (Such as the 420M drop off on Hilo, Hawaii), but for …

This week we’re at Airlie beach – gateway to the southern part of the Great Barrier reef and to the millionaire’s island paradise of the Whitsunday Islands! Australia is not quite as budget friendly as other countries, but there are always workarounds, you’ve just gotta get smart!

Do inappropriate things in the naked park in Oslo

Tommo Fun

FUN FOR A FIVER. Naked Satue Park Oslo The Vigeland Sculpture park in Oslo is Free (in every sense of the word). No one expects you personally to get naked, and with a climate like Norway’s, don’t expect to see any naked tourists either, but the statues are all nudes, over 200 of them and all sculpted by one man: Artist/Pervert Gustav Vigeland. I decided against having a lick… I don’t know …
