No pictures today. Today I will travel from Sydney to Hobart (Tasmania).
The day started with a lot of rain in Sydney making leaving this city a bit easier;-) But when the sun showed for some time, I couldn’t resist walking to Circular Quay one more time. It was a nice stroll along many visitors again. Then I had to return to my hotel because the taxi would pick me up within 30 minutes. The moment I got back in the hotel, the rain started pouring again. Good timing.
It was a pleasant flight to Hobart. Here I picked up my next car, a Nissan X-Trail this time, to drive to all sorts of nice places on this island. One thing is clear: it’s much colder down here: 15 degrees… brrrrrr. A few weeks ago it was over 40… But then: it’s dry. And that’s not always the case on this island.
Let’s start by getting to the hotel. I noticed on my small map that Hobart city is all about one way streets and my hotel is in the middle of it all. Hey, where did I hear that before? Oh yeah: that was in Sydney where Tom Tom didn’t help much… Well this time he/she was performing very nicely again and I found the hotel in no time.
By the time I got there, it was dark and it’s Sunday, meaning everything is closed in this town. Therefore it’s going to be a relaxed dinner in the hotel and then it’s time to move on to tomorrow.

Clare McEwan (the organizer of the Air Safari) had a suggestion for my days in Sydney: take the ferry Manly and have a look around. And since he’s been around this place more then I have, I will follow up on his recommendation. So here we go to find the Ferry. It’s an interesting concept: this boat never turns around; it just uses the other propeller I guess.Read full article
Someone suggested I should also take a look at Darling Harbour. It’s just a 30 - 40 minute walk from my hotel (seems that most things are in a 30 - 40 minutes’ walk range). The weather is not that warm today mainly due to the cold wind. But hey: put on some jeans and start walking.Read full article
Yesterday when I walked back from Thrifty to my hotel I found the places I showed in my previous post. Today I want to look at things more closely. No big plans just walking around and see what’s here. Let’s start by looking out of my hotel room window:Read full article
