Hi guys! I'm from Tasmania, Australia. This is my hometown, Hobart.
I took the GF for a holiday over new years, so i thought i would do a combined "i'm from" & Holiday adventure story! Dog & Cow adventure at the end!
It was one of the earlier settlements in Australia... The poms sent their naughtiest to our island, at the prison of Port Arthur.
You will note it is rather European in architecture.
Lovely little place. This is Richmond. Kind of touristy, but we go there to feed the ducks.
Here is a map of our adventure. from Hobart to Bridport, a tiny fishing village.
The place we stayed was called "Platypus Holiday Retreat".
This is a Platypus. We were told we could see them there. Mission accepted!
Typical country scenery during the summer. In the middle and south of the state it is mountains, but in the north, where this is, it is mostly prime farming land. They make some killer cheeses and meat (beef, lamb and pork are famous).
The water looks pretty as well. Really clean. Also, really cold.. Thanks Antarctica :(
Here is the GF going to look in rock pools. You never know what you will find. We found nothing though this time.
