    Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery

    September 6 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 3 °C

    After a relaxed morning with long breakfast I decided to go to the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery in Hobart! It was really interesting. I spend there 3 h and only saw 1 of the 3 floors. However, I've learned a lot of new things about the Aboriginal culture in Tasmania and the sad history of Aboriginal people after the Europeans took the land over, or (in other words), stole their land. Nowadays, Tasmania still has a quite big and strong aboriginal community. They try to rediscover aboriginal traditions for example the songs, dances, tools or handcrafts . However, the people of this community are half European half aboriginal (because European sealers had aboriginal wifes). There is no tasmanian Aboriginal without European blood left...
    The museum also offers exhibition about the history of Tasmania, it's nature or the Antarctica which were really interesting!

    Hobart, Tasmania

    October 27, 2018 in Australia ⋅ 🌧 55 °F

    Hobart is the capital of Australia's island state and sits on the river Derwent nestled besides Mount Wellington.
    We spent the morning wondering around the infamous Salamanca Market, with over 300 stalls selling local produce, from jewellery, clothes and artwork to Tasmanian timber, cheese, ceramics and flowers.
    A rather wet and windy afternoon exploring the town via the open top bus. We did stop for a nice piece of cake at Battery Point, famous for its narrow lanes and colonial era cottages.
