Today I went out to explore the mountain bike trails at Daisy Hill Conservation Park for the first time. It is 5 days since it last rained so I thought that there would be a bit of mud lying around but that the tracks would generally be dry enough to ride. How wrong I was…. It turns out that the tracks at Daisy Hill hold water like nowhere else, despite […]
This post follows on from my previous posts about Tasmania and it may be worth reading those posts first, alternatively enjoy! Waking up at Friendly beaches on the east coast of Tasmania is a lovely experience. Before packing up we made an exciting breakfast of museli and wandered down to the beaches.

I might write up a full description later, but here are some photographic highlights.
It was a wet and windy weekend and all through the house chilly drafts filled every corner. The alarm stirred two sleepy figures who opened their eyes, mumbled a few words about how terrible it was and rolled over to go back to sleep. Ten minutes later one figure sat bolt upright and declared that it was time to go riding! Our plans for the weekend we’re fairly simple. We […]
Like all nerds I spent today trying to see the transit of Venus across the Sun. My early attempts from home proved futile so Gael (our French couchsurfer) and I cooked up an ingenious method of enhancing our viewing apparatus until we could see the transit! As with any engineering solution it included the bathroom mirror, a chair, the lid of a jigsaw puzzle and a map of Australia.

If you have suggestions on what I should be doing let me know, otherwise I’ll just keep enjoying the life of a leisure! Volunteer Work I thought that since I have to give […]
