    Hobart - Tag 1

    January 4 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Ok, die Unterkunft heute früh erfolgreich gewechselt bzw. Erstmal men Gepck in der neuen Unterkunft abgestellt und ab die Stadt erkunden. Da ich unbedingt neue Socken brauchte, war das erste Ziel H&M im Stadtzentrum. Fatalerweise ist noch immer Sale und mein Taschenrechner teilte mir auch noch mit, WIE preiswert die Sachen sind. Jedenfalls, habe ich tatsächlich neue Socken, aber auch 2 neue Kleider, 1 Rock, 1 Shorts und etwas neue Unterwäsche für einen irren Preis erhalten. On top, erhielt ich noch 2 Teile, jeweils die günstigsten der jeweiligen Kategorie, kostenfrei dazu. Auf der Suche nach etwas essbarem zum Mittag, habe ich dann noch einen Schlenker durch die Shopping Mall nebenan gemacht. Ich wurde auch fündig, aber irgendwie gesellte sich mit dem Sushi noch ein sehr süßes rotes Kleid zu meinen anderen Kleidern. Verdammt, 3 Kleider. 🙈 Danach hab ich mir selbst Shoppingverbot erteilt. Nur neue in-ear Kopfhörer mussten noch her, da meine das Zeitliche gesegnet haben und ich davon leider keinen Ersatz eingepackt habe.

    Danach brauchte ich etwas frische Luft und bin weiter Richtubg Hafen spaziert und habe einen Zwischenstopp bei der Touristeninfo eingelegt, um nachzufragen, was der rotbraune Himmel über Hobart zu bedeuten hat. Diverse Buschfeuer war die Antwort. Nichts worüber man sich in Hobart Gedanken machen müsste, wurde gesagt. Mal schauen, ob das unsere Tour, die Morgen startet, irgendwie betrifft.

    Direkt neben der Touristeninformation befindet sich eine kleine Destillerie gür Gin & Whisky, die Lakes Distillery. Also habe ich mir um 14:30 Uhr spontan ein kleines Gin Tasting gegönnt. 😇
    Danach habe ich noch ein wenig Hobart’s kleine Gassen und historische Bauten erkundet, nicht umsonst ist es Australiens zweit älteste Stadt, bevor es zurück zum Hostel ging.

    Welcome to Hobart

    February 9, 2018 in Australia ⋅

    Nachdem wir die vergangen knapp 35 Stunden im Flugzeug oder an Flughäfen verbracht hatten, sind wir gestern Abend glücklich und sehr müde im Hostel ‚Monacute’ in Hobart angekommen und waren froh, endlich wieder im Liegen schlafen zu können.

    Am ersten Tag in Hobart - gingen wir es ruhig an und besuchten nach dem Frühstück den ,Opossum Bay‘ und fuhren ein wenig durch die Gegend - ach ja, wir haben von der Autovermietung einen flotten weissen Flitzer erhalten.

    Unser Hostel ist im sogenannten ‚Battery Point‘ und nur gerade 10 Gehminuten vom Hafen und Stadtzentrum entfernt. Am Nachmittag nahmen wir diesen kurzen Spaziergang auf uns und erkundeten Hobart zu Fuss. Am Hafen war noch das ‚Queen‘s Baton Relay‘ im Gange, irgendein Anlass mit Livemusik:-) Die verschiedenen Musiker klangen mal gut, mal weniger - Manu hat während dessen Statistik erhoben über den Kaugummikauenden Securitymann in Rot vor der Bühne: 92 x Kaugummi kauen in 60 Sekunden, hochgerechnet auf 1 Stunde kommt man auf unglaubliche 5520 Kaubewegungen - dieser Kiefer muss was aushalten können!

    Tassie, here we come.

    November 18, 2017 in Australia ⋅

    The flight to Tasmania is quite a short one, so we had most of the afternoon yesterday to roam around the waterfront in Hobart. Our hotel is in a great location and we can walk to many of the main attractions here. Hobart is considered by many to be the prettiest city in Australia and I think they may be right. The historic buildings have been kept in wonderful shape , the waterfront is clean and attractive, and there are plenty of parks with lawns and flowers scattered around.
    Today we walked to the Salamanca Market, the top tourist attraction in Hobart. Our experiences with markets in other towns had not made us very enthusiastic. They seem to be vegetables and fruits and flea market stalls. But not Salamanca!! We spent hours perusing (and buying) in hundreds of stalls containing Tasmanian handmade articles. There were lovely woolens, jewelry, leather goods, wooden articles, etc. The items were unique and of high quality. The market is about 3 blocks long and 4 stalls wide and happens every Saturday. It was full of people, but the merchants always had time to tell you how their wares were made.
    We also visited the Maunston Hut Museum. Maunson was an Antarctic explorer who led an expedition in 1908. The museum is a reconstruction of the huts that they built there to stay for a year. We knew very little about Antarctica exploration but the man working there gave us lots of information and we enjoyed learning about it.
    Then we headed off to Battery Hill, a quaint residential area with small cottages as perfectly kept as when they were built 150 years ago. It was very nice to just wander around and enjoy the houses and gardens.
    Except for a foray off to the modern shopping area in search of Blundstone Boots, and a stop off at a whisky distillery, we spent the day in the old town and enjoyed it immensely.

    Hobart is fun!

    November 26, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 61 °F

    I ran into a bunch of guys and gal from the Royal Caribbean ship in person for the night. They're basically the house band and are Americans, Australians, and an Argentinian. We had a lot of fun at a bar that has one-way glass in the men's bathroom. Lol! I can't wait to spend more time here after I go around the island.

    Now, I've just finished some maintenance shopping and am driving to the next place. I'm not sure where yet; I need to find a place to stop and take a look at my maps.

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

    No More Rental Car

    December 9, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 61 °F

    I turned in the rental car at the airport this morning and grabbed at taxi back to downtown Hobart to where I am now, Tavern 42 Degrees South. Very yummy brunch and Bloody Marys. And very well deserved after 2,545 kilometers over the past two weeks.

    Nothing else going on today except enjoying my bottom bunk in the hostel. Another crappy weather day, 13°C/55°F and cloudy skies that want to rain.

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

    Packing Day (but not yet)

    December 11, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 64 °F

    I found Kilkenny again! Lol. The Irish pub not far from my hostel serves it. I'll probably go back tonight for dinner. Yummy!

    Today is packing day because I leave for New Zealand tomorrow, but right now I'm just being lazy. I'm the only one in the room until at least 14:00 (check in time), and I'm enjoying it.

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

    P.S.: Yes, I know my face matches my shirt. I got a little sunburned on the boat. First-world problems. 😀

    End of the Kyneton Stay

    November 18, 2017 in Australia ⋅

    We signed up for a tour from the resort going to Woop-Woop. As one of the people with us explained, when she was young and acted silly, her parents would say she had gone to Woop-Woop. That explained what this place was. It is billed as looking at the Aussie sense of humour. The owner, a lady of retirement age named Melva, has made about a hundred sculptures out of everyday things used in a funny way. They match up to Aussie sayings, which can be a little hard to follow. Some were using Aussie rhyming slang, like Cockney in England. There were Australians, New Zealanders and us in the group and they helped explain from time to time. A lot of the humour was quite bawdy, especially funny coming out of this lady. She involves the people in her jokes, and a couple of pictures show some of the times we were asked to participate. We laughed when she asked Dave his name and couldn’t understand what he said until a local translated to “Diav”. It was an experience.
    Our last day at Kyneton was quite rainy, but we couldn’t feel bad, because the weather has been fantastic. Into each life some rain must fall. The group of kangaroos came by to entertain us, and we went into town and did some errands.

    Museum of New and Old Art (MONA), Part 2

    December 8, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 66 °F

    Yesterday at MONA was all day. The final show was the outdoor pavilion that displays the light show at sunset (20:40 last night). I left about 21:15 because of mosquitoes, but it was very beautiful and soothing.

    Today has been another wash. I went to Zoodoo Zoo, but it started raining, so I drove back to Hobart to do laundry.

    Now, I'm at my hostel about to check in.

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

    Hobart

    February 15, 2016 in Australia ⋅

    After a cold night in a tent with some rain and wind, we decided to do couchsurfing for the next two nights in Hobart. Here we did some warm clothes shopping in second hand stores and went to the top of Mt. Wellington. My first snow for nearly 1 year!

    Hobart

    January 14 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Nach dem aufwachen hatte ich eine weniger erfreuliche Email erhalten. Schon jetzt wurde angekündigt, dass mein Flug wegen technischen Problemen mindestens 2 Stunden Verspätung hat. Also hab ich genügend Zeit in Hobart noch die Innenstadt zu erkunden. So bin ich nach einem Frühstück am Hafen weiter durch die Stadt und zum Abendessen gab es dann noch "Fish and Chips" wieder am Hafen. Der Fisch war sehr lecker und er war definitiv frisch und wurde vor meinen Augen paniert und zubereitet. Zwischenzeitlich gab es auch schon ein Update und die Verspätung beträgt schon über drei Stunden. Vorteil ich konnte mir die Zeit in der Stadt vertreiben und musste nicht am Flughafen dumm rumsitzen. Kurz vor Mitternacht ging es dann los.Read more
