    Bruny Island and a Butthole

    December 10 in Australia

    Today started out with wonderfully warm weather and beautiful blue skies. I boarded a bus for Bruny Island at about 8 am. We took the ferry across and boarded 43-seat rubber-sided boat for a three-hour tour (three-hour tour 🎶) of the east coast.

    We saw two types of seals, a bachelor pod of Australian fur seals and a family group of long-nosed or New Zealand seals!!!!. We also saw two types of kormorants, black-faced and great, as well as an Australasian gannet. And super bonus, we came across a pod of Pacific common dolphins! Beautiful!!

    I met an amazing couple of humans, too. Jude and Kylie, whom I hope to call friends.

    Since my phone was in my bag safely secured from what turned out to be non-existent wet in the overhead area beneath the small boat roof/canopy, this selfie is from the time of this post during lunch, a late lunch, gladly deferred by the amazing sights of the fauna and Flora, including Jurassic dolomite, we had earlier.

    A passenger took a picture of me at noon, but the photo is on my camera and in front of--what I realized after the pics--a butthole. Really. There just isn't any other thing to call it. I had this beautiful Tazzy beach and rocks and cliffs in the background, then the guy was like, "Turn around," and I did.

    When he was done taking pictures with the unseen background, I turned around and, holy crap ha ha, butthole. Two bulbously round islands (that would make Kim Kardashian cringe) with a cave in the middle. Oh well, I guess everyone has to have their face associated an ass at some point. At least mine's not with a Kardashian. Or a Trump. [I shudder that I can't go even one day without that moron's name being said outloud.]

    And with that....

    So long [for now] and thanks for all the fish. ✌️

    Tasmanien (1)

    January 30, 2017 in Australia

    Heute früh geht es nach Tasmanien. Am Flughafen leihe ich mir ein Auto und sammle meine Reisebegleiter (eine Schwedin, eine Norwegerin und ein Deutscher) in Hobart ein. Diese habe ich vorher über Facebook kennengelernt. Obwohl ich bei Europcar noch ein Upgrade auf ein größeres Auto vorgenommen habe, ist dieses mit dem ganzen Gepäck und Campingequipment schon komplett voll. Nach einem kurzen Snack fahren wir nach Bruny Island. Dort machen wir eine Wanderung in der Adventure Bay und sehen Wallabies. Später fahren wir an den Strand und beobachten, wie die Pinguine an Land kommen. Das Zelt bauen wir im dunkeln auf.Read more

    Bruny Island

    March 7, 2017 in Australia

    Heute erlebten wir bereits den letzten Tag in Tasmanien. Morgen geht es weiter nach Brisbane.

    Wir waren auf einer geführten Tour über die Bruny-Insel. Nach einer kurzen Fährüberfahrt und einer kurzweiligen Busfahrt über die Insel starteten wir ab der Adventure Bay zu einer Bootsfahrt der Küste entlang.
    Zu entdecken gab es 250m hohe und sehr steile Klippen, unzählige Höhlen, viele Robben, Albatrosse und ein paar Delfine.
