    • Day 230


      March 17, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

      Ready for take-off. ✈️
      After almost 6 months in Brisbane with ups and downs, we had to say goodbye to our colleagues and housemates. It wasn’t always easy but we also had some wonderful moments during that time.
      So yes, our next stop was Hobart, a small town in Tasmania. Even though there was a significant temperature change (we were used to hot and humid 35-40 degrees), the nature is just stunning there. In Tasmania you can find beautiful beaches to relax and amazing mountain ranges to go on some hikes. ⛰🏖
      One day we went to the Wineglass bay, the other day to the Russell falls and on our last day in Hobart we visited Mount Wellington.
      The day after we headed to Launceston, a really small and unspectacular town with lots of churches 😅 because of the current situation we decided to only stay one night instead of four there (and we didn’t like the hostel at all). So we only went to Cradle mountain, but it was definitely the highlight of our Tasmaniatrip. It’s a beautiful drive through the national park and we even spotted a Wombat :) and when we arrived at the lake it seemed like we were in New Zealand. I think the photos say enough ☺️

    • Day 85


      February 3, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 5 °C

      Dann ging der Roadtrip um Tasmanien los mit Bond (unserem Auto 🚗) und dem Fahrer Niels 😉
      Hier übrigens nochmal sorry für die schlechte Navigation meinerseits 😂
      War eine mega Zeit, wir haben so viel Natur, Tiere und Eindrücke von Australien gesehen, die man so einfach wo anders nicht sehen kann 👀⛰
      Einen Wombat, viele, ganz viele Wallaby’s, und viel mehr 😍
      Leider haben wir auch zwei Wallaby’s überfahren...die standen in der Dämmerung einfach so auf der Straße rum und haben sich nicht vom Platz gerührt...😢
      Nichts desto trotz haben wir auch mehreren das Leben gerettet 😊 unsere Route bestand einfach darin, einmal um Tasmanien außen an der Küste lang zu fahren und ja, wir haben es geschafft! 🤗 nach 11 Tagen waren wir aber auch wieder froh, als wir wieder in Sydney waren, wieder in einem normalen Bett zu schlafen 💤 das war im Van schon anstrengend, vor allem wenn man so groß wie ich bin 😂 teilweise lag ich dann mit dem Kopf vor dem Lenkrad auf den Vordersitzen 🤕
      War trotzdem ein unvergessliches Erlebnis und sehr sehr lustig und cool! ☺️

    • Day 210


      April 6, 2021 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C


      We spent 4 months exploring Tasmania and would have stayed longer if the Van was equipped for the Tasmanian winter.

      We explored every corner and there was never a dull moment. From beautiful sunny days to 60klm winds that felt like they would blow the van away, we experienced the lot.

      Some of the highlights

      Mona Museum
      Walls of Jerusalem multi day hike
      Great Lakes Trout Fishing
      Gordon Damn
      Three Capes Multi day Hike
      Macquarie Harbour/ Strahan
      Bay of Fires
      Water House Conservation Area
      Wine Glass Bay
      Coles Beach/ Bicheno

      No matter where you go in Tasmania it is beautiful. There is such a variety in the landscape and terrain. If you love nature and the outdoors you will LOVE it. There is a real peacefulness and freedom that Tasmania has to offer, as well as amazing produce, wine and people. Highly highly recommend
