There will be a few posts from Tasmania, as it’s one of the most beautiful places I’ve visited, and this is a very quiet holiday with lots of spare time to relax, read, look at the view and post photographs !
I am here to visit a few people, I’m lucky enough to have a number of people here to stay with and with whom I chose to spend time. The fact they live in a cool, temperate and lightly developed state of Australia is such a bonus. I do know those are the main reasons they all moved here from elsewhere in Australia.
The good food is one of the reasons I love coming here, so far I’ve eaten great salmon, another fish I don’t remember the name of, and just finished a great long black with an espresso chocolate and salted caramel covered in dark chocolate. Someone had to prove the combination works !
The bush fires here at the moment are terrible, about 60 fires with a fire front approx 1000km and uncontrolled. We are watching very carefully, where I am is safe for now but that could change. We’d get a good 48 hours or warning, but it’s still a sobering situation.
Hobart is 30 minutes away, that gets you parked in the very city centre from leaving about 3 villages/ towns distant along the highway which is a single carriage way road. Love it.
