Vegemite vs Nomadic Chick

Vegemite really seems to be taking off in the travel world as this week I have another attempt on the good stuff. This time its Jeannie of Nomadic Chick fame that has taken on the Vegemite challenge. She wrote about it on her blog but I’ve included the video here for you as well. As you can see its not just Australians that enjoy vegemite and I really don’t think […]


The Alternative Walking Tour of Berlin

Just like Amsterdam it was cold and wet when I packed up to leave the hostel I was in and head across to the same one as D.

I do my best to return the RT’s on twitter or comments on my blog but recently I’ve found myself floundering in returning the good will bestowed […]


Vegemite vs Stephanie

Another of my fellow travel bloggers has finally stepped up to the plate and tried the vegemite I posted off to them before leaving Australia. This time its Stephanie from… who battled the vegemite monster. Want to know what she thought? well hit the play button below. The outcome… its not good but its not bad. I think I’m claiming that one as a win for Vegemite, and hey […]
