    From Devonport to Devonport.

    March 7, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 15 °C

    A cold night, with the hot water bottles definitely required!
    I had set my alarm for 7.45, but my phone died overnight, and with my head ducked under the blanket to keep warm, I didnt realise it was 10.30 until Hannah told me. Bit of a waste of a morning.
    Drove to Launceston, stopped into Coles for some food and booze and headed to a cellar door in a quarry called Penny Royal. The wine was from Relbia estate, the reds were so bad that Hannah tipped hers out.
    Cool place with loads of pirate themed stuff.
    Drove round the corner to a gorge with a full river and bridge running over the top.
    After much back and forth decided on heading to Devonport. As we had to really being that was were I used to work.
    Checked into a campsite and had a very posh birthday meal out at Drift. Thank you Hannah.

    Ab auf die Insel

    January 20, 2020 in Australia ⋅ 🌧 21 °C

    Für uns ging es nach Tasmanien! Darauf habe ich mich sehr gefreut, zurück ins "neuseeländische Australien". Nach einem Tag in Melbourne ging es für uns auf die Fähre Spirit of Tasmania. Da wir die Nacht durchfuhren, gönnten wir uns eine Kabine und wachten in tasmanischen Gewässern wieder auf.
    Von Devonport fuhren wir direkt zur Farm, da wir unverzüglich mit unserer Arbeiten auf der großen Milchfarm anfingen. Das war definitiv etwas Anderes, um einiges größer und hatten mit 1250 Kühen ca. das 3,5-fache an Tieren. Aber hey, hier wird die restliche Zeit meiner Farmarbeit, die ich für mein drittes Work and Travel Visa benötige, bestimmt schnell rumgehen.

    Tassie

    May 9, 2019 in Australia ⋅ 🌧 13 °C

    We woke up from the lights on the ferry and found our way out of the harbour an hour later. A coffee shop kept us warm and dry while finishing some work, and still in the city we rebuild our food storage and shopped for the Tasmanian early winter.
    Finally, after an afternoon brekkie, we hit the road again. Didn't make it that far, though, but found a spot for rainy camping east of Devonport.

    Leaving Tassie

    May 22, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    Finishing Tassie as we started, we made an attempt for shopping in a very small shopping street before getting stuff down from the roof again to go into the ferry back to the main land.
    Driving in Tasmania is all about finding a way with only fes unsealed roads and avoiding animals and roadkills on the road. It's easy to find places to park overnight, but drinking water taps are rare. Besides mountains and national parks, the island were a lot of cold and early mornings, beautiful skies, wildlife, convict history, and long drives with Spanish lessons.Read more

    Devonport

    October 24, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 12 °C

    Arrived in Devonport at 5.30am. Waiting to disembark at 6.45am
    After a smooth crossing of Bass Strait, our initial stop was for Angela's to visit the now decommissioned Mersey Women's Hospital-this is where her Midwifery training took place back 1982 - 1983. The hospital, which has stood empty for many years, has been totally vandalized and is to be demolished soon- sad to see this happen-so many happy memories.
    We then checked out her old flat she had shared for a few months-now stands in only marginally better shape than the hospital !
    It was then breakfast at the wind swept Mersey Bluff -cold but looking out over Bass Strait a great breakfast treat !
    Our next stop was a few kilometers down the road to the township of Latrobe-Ange lived in the nurse's home for the rest of her training-the nurse's home is now part of the hospital administration offices but unfortunately off limits despite a polite request to have a look down the corridor.After a drive around the small township-including Angela's old walking track and a look at the big hill she would climb we found ourselves at the House of Anvers-a chocolate shop and chocolate Museum for a delicious morning tea - needing to tackle that exercise track that Angela's once used afterwards !!!!
    We decided to stock up on some supplies back in Devonport and visited Hill Street Grocery-a great store so inviting and everything displayed in such a way that browsing was a must. There are apparently several of these stores throughout Tasmania-originating in Hobart.
    Our next stop was to visit Simon Martin Whips and leathercraft -the smell drifting around the store was amazing and such beautiful leather goods on display -you could watch them working with the leather, crafting it into quality products in front of your very eyes.
    Our final mission for the day was to sit on the banks of the Mersey River and watch that Spirit of Tasmania commence her evening sail back to Port Melbourne.

    Abschied von Tasmanien

    February 14, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    How fast time passed away....
    We are back to Devonport, where our Tasmania trip started 4 weeks ago. Now it's time to say goodbye. Due to bushfires and weather conditions we couldn't see everything that we wanted to, but what we saw was outstanding beautiful.Read more

    Manchmal kommt es anders

    January 23 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    In Devonport hatte ich ein paar Dinge zu erledigen und mich auch wieder mit Roxane treffen können, da sie hier eine Unterkunft und Job gefunden hat.

    Dieser allerdings war im Prinzip nicht was sie wollte und durch Zufall hat sie etwas anderes gefunden, dass sie wollte, allerdings in South Australia.

    Sie fragte mich ob wir nochmal eine Woche entlang der Great Ocean Road gemeinsam verbringen wollen, da sie in dem neuen Job erst am 1.2. anfangen würde.

    Ich hatte meine ursprüngliche Fährbuchung bereits seit einigen Tagen auf heute vorverlegt, da ich irgendwie mit Tasmanien für den Augenblick soweit zufrieden war, dass ich es verlassen wollte.

    So sind wir dann heute gemeinsam wieder zurück nach Melbourne geschippert.
