Wind, wind and ... yes .. wind.. bloody head wind all the time., speed up to 50km/h. . yes, I planned my trip on Tassie wisely, checked always the weather forecast. when I spoke to locals, always the same answer: for this season it is very unusual, that the wind blows from West to East.
anyway, I can´t change the weather/wind, so I rent a car and did quite a lot of sightseeing. Port Arthur, Bruny Island, Unzoo, MONA...
I love Hobart !!
A big pleasure was to meet Dan again. first time we met each other 2012 in Bishkek /Kyrgyzstan. He travelled on a motorbike from London to Hobart, and he stayed in the same guesthouse as Astrid (my former travel-partner) and I. awesome reunion :-)
