Patricia will be leaving Hobart at the end of this week for Hong Kong, where she is looking after James when Lisa goes back to work. We are planning to go on one or two more excursions, but have already seen a great deal of the Island. You can see quite a lot of photos at tassie.kandp.dk and also some here
As well as a tour all around the island we have also done a few shorter trips and day trips to the Hartz Mountains, Mount Wellington, the Botanic Gardens and MONA – the amazing new museum that has recently opened.
It really is a very beautiful island with spectacular mountain and coastal scenery, beautiful forests and quite abundant wildlife. There is all kinds of wonderful local food – cheeses, vegetables, wine and seafood. The oysters are about the only thing here that is cheap however otherwise it makes even Copenhagen seem quite reasonable.
