Just some stuff I want to share with you

In and around Apollo Bay

Saturday 2 May 2009

Today I will investigate all the interesting things to see and do in and around Apollo Bay. Since the high season is over, it’s relatively quite here. A lot of attractions are closed. However, there’s one thing that never closes: the beach. So I started the day with a short walk along the ocean. It’s a great way to wake up.

Back on the big island

Wednesday 29 April 2009

Well, if you have looked at the dates of the previous posts you probably have found that the blog is way behind by now. It’s been quite difficult to keep it up to date and over the last week or so I just couldn’t keep up. There were just too many days without Internet access or I just ran out of time doing all sorts of holiday-thingies. In order to get back in sync, I will make the next few posts quite brief.

Walking, walking and walking

Sunday 26 April 2009

Guess what I did today. Yep you are right: I did a whole lot of walking.

The weather is not too bad this morning. It’s dry, about 10 degrees and the wind is quite strong which makes it really cold. But by adding enough layers of insulation, that problem can be solved.

Okay… Let’s just start walking and when the weather gets bad, I can always turn around.

Saturday 25 April 2009

As you may have read: yesterday was not a good day for me. Especially when I looked at the weather forecast: it’s going to rain for the next days. Add to that: a weather warning forecasting a lot of wind, low temperatures and snow in the places where I go to today.

Bad hair day.

Friday 24 April 2009

After all that walking yesterday, it’s time to do some distance again. Today’s goal: Launceston. It’s the second biggest town in Tasmania (about 90.000 people).

The day didn’t start very well. I am a bit cranky today and nothing goes very smoothly. You know: things fall when they shouldn’t, nothing is where it should be and you forget everything you shouldn’t forget (like where you left your car key)… It’s a good thing I am traveling alone today ;-)
