The East Coast of Tasmania is THE place to go on this island if you wish to get away from it all, put your feet up and completely unwind from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The fact that life in Tassie is already pretty chilled means that a trip up the East Coast … More East Coast Relaxation
If you’ve been in Tasmania long enough, you’ll have heard about the Tahune Airwalk. It’s a walkway constructed dozens of meters above the ground in the canopy of the dense forests that spread Westwards into the great wilderness areas of Tasmania. The photos you see of it are breathtaking with the tops of the eucalyptus trees … More A cider and a night at Tahune Airwalk
Finishing off this little series of posts on the joys of going for a stroll takes us to the highlight of the journey, Cornelian Bay. Hobart keeps surprising me every time I venture out to see what I can find, beyond my previously explored areas. The walk along the Derwent had been rather pleasant already … More Cornelian Bay and New Town
Following on from the previous post whereby I explored the regatta grounds, I decided to keep on walking towards the Tasman Bridge. There’s a lovely cycle path that runs along the Derwent all the way up the estuary as far as Claremont for a total of almost 16km, a fine journey indeed. It’s often ill-advised … More Tasman Bridge and surrounds
This is going to be the first post of a few from a wee stroll I went on the other day, which turned into quite the long walk indeed. I’ve been living in Hobart for several months now and there’s still so many places in the city and surrounds I’ve yet to see. I decided … More Hobart Regatta Grounds
On Saturday I had the immense pleasure of attending an Instameet in the Huon Valley. What’s an Instameet I hear you ask. Essentially it’s a social gathering of Instagram users who get together to document a particular location or event and get to know one another in the process. I was very pleasantly surprised to … More Nice to Instameet you: A trip aboard the Yukon
Just before we moved up to Mount Nelson we had the time to explore our neighbourhood around Sandy Bay. We took a stroll down to the Wrest Point hotel and casino and then continued SE along Sandy Bay Road towards Long Beach. The buildings and houses along the way reminded us a lot of home … More Long Beach and Little Sandy Bay, Hobart.
With just a few weeks left in the Czech Republic and lots of work to do to get ready for our next adventure I haven’t been able to get out and about to take pictures and go on adventures. For those of you who follow my Instagram feed, you’ll notice I have been taking plenty … More Park Na Špici and introducing Frank
This weekend we decided to take a trip away from Pardubice to unwind and reset our minds after being cooped up in our little apartment for perhaps a little longer than is healthy. I sent Sinéad a message on Facebook on Wednesday saying we should do something this weekend and go somewhere new…..an hour or … More Weekend trip to Olomouc in Moravia.
Them bones, them bones need…..their picture taken…..money thrown at them…..a light dusting. I finally got round to visiting the beautiful town of Kutna Hora on Tuesday when we had a bank holiday in the Czech Republic. It seems to be one of the few places that a lot of my colleagues in work visit and … More Sedlec Ossuary
