    ... once you learn, within 5 minutes it all comes back and it's like you did it yesterday, The free things to see were all located around Pirate Bay. A beautiful area on the east coast.

    ... wharf and in no time I'd be chatting to a local about 'the good 'ol days' or the fire that ripped through the village a few years back destroying most of the dwellings. My most memorable conversation however was with three gentlemen, two of whom were fishing. "Catch anything yet", I enquired. "Naa, no fish here sport. We been wetting our lines on this jetty for the past few years 'n haven't had a bite". "Then why do you fish here?". "Exercise", was the 'ol blokes strange reply. "I'm ...

    ... up. I was basically scaling a mountain. It was awesome. Finally we reached the top, took in our surroundings, and said "holy ****".

    ... soort dorpje, waar vanalles en iedereen was. Hoe weinig we van deze 'attractie' wisten, hoe interessant we heb nu vinden. Einde van dag 1 heeft Miriam ons op de top van Mount Wellington gereden. Fantastisch uitzicht over de stad Hobart. de auto, dag 2: Vandaag naar Bruny Island gereden. Weer een idee van mij. Bij aankomst weer dezelfde vraag van Miriam ''Wat is hier te doen?'' ''Eerlijk? Geen idee.'' Kaartje voor de ferry gekocht en ...
