beautiful landscape, nice people, steep upclimbs and bloody wind..
I had some great days in Adelaide and Melbourne. In Melbourne, on Nov 4th I dropped of my campervan and cycled to the ferry port. the ferry "Spirit of Tasmania" from Melbourne to Devonport departs at 7:30pm and arrives at 6:00am . was an easy trip , no waves and very relaxed.
After arrival in Devonport I rode to the "Tasman Backpackers Lodge" and had been staying there for two nights.
