Probably one of the more politically incorrect Leaning Tower of Pisa photos you'll ever see, but not surprising considering it's phallic nature in Italy!

Travel Blogger and Freelance Travel Writer from Australia
I'm a travel writer/blogger who runs The Travel Tart, a silly travel site which focuses on the funny, offbeat and downright weird aspects of world travel today.

The Travel Tart is a travel blog with a difference - think of it as a cross between Monty Python and Lonely Planet. The website features funny travel photos, videos, stories, advice and tips which make fun of travel - because travel was meant to be fun and not taken too seriously!

The Travel Tart (sometimes known as Anthony) is a self-proclaimed travel addict who will find any excuse to go travelling.

He discovered he really enjoyed traveling the world when he was sent to a former war zone for work -- Kosovo -- as his first venture outside of Australia and New Zealand. This created a habit of visiting places that most package tourists avoid like the plague. He has since travelled to over 50 countries over six continents -- nowhere near enough!

While travelling, he likes risking his life by utilising barely road-worthy forms of transport such as African mini-buses, suicidal Cairo cabs, and flatulent camels. That's if he's lucky!

His foray into the travel writing world happened by accident -- his dodgy friends thought it was a good idea to convert his silly travel emails into something more substantial -- like articles, and a website.

But not an ordinary travel blog where there are boring anecdotes of places that everyone else has been to! No, he has an eye for the quirkiness of the world, wherever that may be, even his home country of Australia!

I even have an irregularly updated 'beer index' of the website, which lists a nominated beer of each country that I have visited in a price per litre. So the country with the cheapest beer wins! It's not necessarily an indication of quality, but hey, many people have commented that this is the best part of the website!

If you are a travel blogger or blogger in general, feel free to contact me via this form ( and I would be more than happy to feature your funny travel photo. In fact, some of the funniest world travel pictures I've come across have been from others keen to share their humour with the world and other funny travel photos, videos and stories!

Let's face it, travel wasn't meant to be taken too seriously! The last thing that we want to do after taking time off from the the fluorescent prison (that is the office) is be serious on holiday or vacation. Travel was meant to be fun! This is in stark contrast to a lot of literature which is quite serious. Stuff that! Have some fun!

I have even written a dodgy travel book which is yet to be published - it's called 'I hope that my god makes you're bus crash and you're the only one who dies'. The title comes from a hustler in Tangier, Morocco, who tried to extract my money for providing advice that I didn't ask for, need, or want! It sounded terrible at the time, but I had to have a laugh!
