Rottnest Stay Part II

Sunset

It was my first full day to myself on the island and I got up with the sun, wandering down to the Rottnest Island Bakery for a breakfast steak & onion pie, even accepting the $7.00 price tag without too much of a struggle (I am Scottish after all).

Tasmania Road Trip Part I

spirit_of_tasmania_shipThis is part I of our road trip around the apple isle, the first time in Tasmania for my partner and for myself. For those who don’t know Tasmania it is Australia’s most southern state and not physically attached to the main Australian land mass, i.e. it’s an island state. Its closest Australian state is Victoria and they are separated by a sea known as the Bass Straight. [Read more…]

Two Nights In Sydney
