Tasmania

  • I’m in Tasmania! I knew I would like Tasmania right away when I saw the beautiful scenery on the bus ride up. Wow, the whole state is breathtaking. I saw a sign on the road that made me smile. “Quiet! The trees are growing!” A few minutes later I saw a rainbow arcing all the way across a ...
  • One thing I’ve always taken for granted… Internet. Never again will I take it for granted. Here in Tasmania it is unbelievably expensive. As of right now I am paying a dollar for 9 minutes of internet usage. And there is no way for me to upload pictures!
  • So very sorry, and a little Tasmania! The trip I took to Tasmania was five days, and because each day is a bountiful glory of pictures and information, I will be separating each post by day. This way you don’t have to read all of them in one sittings and then probably get fired from your job – since I know most ...
  • Under Down Under Tour – Day 1 After our fantastic walk along the beach, we went back up to the wooded area of the trail. The trail was pretty high up above the beach, certainly higher than the tide would have come in, but we noticed that there were tons of shells up there and were trying to figure out how they ...
  • Under Down Under Tour – Day 2 When we arrived, we got out and started walking through the forest. It was only about an hour-long walk this time, but the rain forest was beautiful. Not quite as beautiful as the tropical rain forests (like the ones I had seen on a previous trip to Costa Rica) are in my opinion, but temperate ...
  • Under Down Under Tour – Day 3 It turned out to be another five-hour hike day, and this one was so much more challenging than the first five-hour hike. This mountain was TOUGH. There were so many loose rocks, and it seemed like this hike could be really dangerous – if you weren’t an expert mountain scaler like myself.
  • Under Down Under Tour – Day 4 Our first stop was the rainforest of Montezuma Falls. Another beautiful rainforest for me to enjoy! Unfortunately it was another cold day, and this time it was raining. However, the forest during the walk was beautiful, so it didn’t bother me TOO much.
  • Under Down Under Tour – Day 5 First, we went through one forest to get a glimpse of Nelson Falls (another waterfall!). It was still freezing cold so we walked pretty quickly. It’s really a shame I didn’t come to Tasmania more prepared for cold weather. I could have stopped to enjoy the rain forest a bit more instead of rushing to ...
  • Laziness in my posts! The first night we stayed in and just watched a couple of movies, including an Australian film that was EXTREMELY disturbing. It was one of those real-life ones that try to teach you a lesson… the ones that they make you watch in high school.
