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

Megsy Fun

Essaouira Morocco. The unsung hero of the country.

Tommo Fun

Were you thinking of hiring a houseboat in Kerala? The quintessential way to see the backwaters, or so the Kerala tourist authority will tell you, is by houseboat – not surprising, as this is also by far the most expensive way to see them. Although there are some positive reasons to splash out (hilarious pun) on an overpriced houseboat, there are a host of other cheaper, better value options. Alleppey …

Is it Ethical To Swim With Whale Sharks?

Megsy Fun

Is feeding migratory animals in order to keep them in one area for tourists a serious moral and environmental concern? The Philippines has many attractions on offer: white sandy beaches, stunning coral reefs, and the rare opportunity to swim with sharks… ok it’s whale sharks so there is no element of danger to be had, BUT it’s still a super cool experience.

Across the North Korea Border and back again!

Tommo Fun

The city of Dandong is China’s main link with North Korea. Aside from being a trade hub it is also a major tourist attraction as it is one of the only places in the world where you can quite easily, briefly cross the border into North Korea. The Yalu river separates China and North Korea. Although crossing into NK properly is actually a rather complicated and expensive process, taking a tourist ferry …

Fishmongers, Fish and chips in Manly, Sydney. (Restaurant Review with Video)

Tommo Food, Video Blogs

This is not your traditional Fish & Chips. Fishmongers offers a menu of deep fried aquatic treats that differs from your regular street side fryer. We enjoy tempura prawns and veggies along with the slightly more classic fishermans basket including battered fish and Calamari. Take awesome fresh ingredients and deep fry them… how can you go wrong? Well, fortunately Fishmongers do not go too far wrong. The Fish was light, …
