... of the blog comes from the song Omaha by the Counting Crows. With lyrics like "roll a new leaf over" and "it's the heart that matters", I think it refers to change, finding meaning and the circle of life. Most of our travels will also be through middle America, which is more of a cultural reference than a particular area. You can listen to it here:

... up. After some embarrassment he turned to me as I walked passed and said, 'I think that's because I was looking at you love!'. Haha! I stopped at Harvest, the Launceston farmers market and ended up with a jar of local manuka honey and having a long chat with the maker of Blue Penguin wines.

Fabulous place to stay. Quaint with all the little touches which make you feel relaxed and special, including port and choccies on arrival and a well stocked breakfast pantry. The resident cats, birds and chooks make you feel at home as well. A quiet and peaceful oasis in the middle of a lovely city. Highly recommended.
