Travel to Tasmania

Tasmania(Tassi, Tasi) is about double size of Taiwan, its latitude is about the same as Hokkaido(北海道) Japan.

From 4/9 to 4/22, 13 nights and 13 days, I traveled in Tasmania with three Taiwanese girls I met in the tomato packing shed.




We traveled around Tasi by car and foot.

Out route(anti-clockwise) started from Launceston, the second big city in Tassi,

to Devonport, home to the Spirit of Tasmania Ferries,

to Cradle Mountain and Dove Lake, where was freezing to me,

to Queenstown, where I thought a big town however it's not,

to Lake St. Clair, which is a place looks like poems and paintings,

to Mt. Field National Park, had to drive carefully in order not to run over any wallaby.

to Hobart, the state capital,

to Huon valley wine tasting,

to cheese tasting, made of sheep milk,

to Tasman Nation Park, (yet another one NP, I was a bit tired of since then),

to Wineglass Bay, does it look like a wine glass?

to Binalong Bay, beautiful beach with shining sands,

to St. Columba Falls,

to a vineyard, wow, no grape there means no job there:P

to a town Ross, which is full of history, but I know nothing except a famous bakery.

to many many towns. Such a happy journey.

A rough list of costs:
4/9 night to 4/22 afternoon, 13 nights and 13 days (4 persons)
