    ... from Hobart, so I decided to head out much earlier and get in all the sights of that area of Tassie. It is definitely a good thing that I gave myself a few extra hours because I used them going around and around the roundabouts and taking detours and wrong turns. Australia is pretty smart - instead of having intersections, they have roundabouts, so your car never really makes a full stop. However, Suri cannot keep up with the roundabouts. (Notice I ...
