          Not a good place for a relaxing stay, it's crowded, the rooms are stuffed with bunks and the kitchen and toilets are very dirty. Therefore it's cheap and has a good location near the town centre of Hobart.

          My eyes are locked and scanning the road, I am vigilant- It’s dinnertime in what appears to be a wasteland. My back sticks to the leather seat and drops of sweat roll down my forehead incessantly. This AC has nothing on ‘Straya. WAAaaahHh! The heat of the sun scorching the leather of the dashboard beneath my heels becomes unbearable …

Another writer of some renown, John McPhee, recently had an essay in the New Yorker about writing "creative non-fiction," saying that what ...

The manager told us that snow had fallen on the Wellington Ranges across the Storm Bay that separates us from the mainland. No wonder it is soo cold. (8 deg C at 3pm) Tomorrow we head north following the east coast where we are told is should be slightly warmer.

          ... next move took us up into the mountains of the wild west coast, and a holiday cottage in Queenstown we found in one of the ads in the back of the local paper.
