Fanny Photos – Lost in Translation!

Okay, it’s Engrish time again! This time, it’s about some Fanny Photos!

Chicken Head – Strange Food!

Okay, here’s one for people who like taking their appreciation of strange food from around the world that little bit too far – it’s the Chicken Head for lunch!

MONAS, Indonesia’s National Monument. Funny Building Nickname.

MONAS – Presidential Project Name Gone Wrong! If you’re ever in Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia, you will most likely come across this massive and grand building called MONAS, or the Indonesian National Monument.

Silver Furniture – Miniature Doll House Extravagance

Silver Furniture – Mini Me Housing In November 2008, I was witnessed some amazing Silver Furniture craftsmanship in Yogyakarta, on the island of Java in Indonesia (Java is the most densely populated island in the world). The workers there make all sorts of intricate pieces of Silver Furniture that could be placed into the most expensive […]

Funny Trip Photo – Men’s Shower Gel, Perfumed Floral Woody

Funny Trip Photo Time! This week’s Funny Trip Photo is from Indonesia. During my recent month long trip there, and because I didn’t want to smell like a filthy backpacker who has recycled his underwear four times (that is front, back, inside out front, inside out back) I bought some Men’s Shower Gel so that […]

Travel Podcast From The Travel Tart – My First Go!

Travel Podcast Time – new for me! Hmm, a Travel Podcast from The Travel Tart. It’s about time I did something a little bit different for a change. I’ve been feeling a bit one dimensional with my website, as it mainly focuses on Travel Writing and still photographs.  I’ve referred to the odd video of […]
