Megsy Food, Fun Leave a Comment

 When heading to Catalonia Spain, there seems to be only one place on everyone’s minds – Barcelona. But, don’t miss out on what the rest of Barcelona Province has to offer. I know. Barcelona is kick-ass. But, let’s just take a step back and look at the downsides of BCN. It’s super touristy, and you can’t move anywhere without being offered some sort of tour, or meal special. In fact you can’t really …

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

Megsy Food 3 Comments

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 Leave a Comment

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, …

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 Leave a Comment

There is a reason some 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 …

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!

Discover the secrets of Italian cuisine, in Florence

I never 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 have sent …

6 Reasons We Spent Less Money in Europe than Asia

Megsy Travel Tips Leave a Comment

Asia is the ultimate budget traveller destination, right? Cheap food. ‘Genuine fake’ clothes that can be bartered for a fraction of the price of an original. Long distance transport is ridiculously cheap compared to western countries. Hostel room for just a few dollars. When we left Australia we set ourselves a budget of $42 total per day (Total, for both of us). Easy right? Nope! We were spending hours searching …
