I have arrived home after spending 5 weeks in my home state – Tasmania. I had a great time and I really fell in love with the place. I think you really don’t appreciate a place until you move away – I loved the moderate climate and the breath taking scenery and could easily move back there.
It was an interesting time on my travels, as it was really my first ever solo trip, where I spent a lot of time on my own, doing things on my own and I discovered so much about myself.
At first I felt like something was missing especially when I went places and I had to buy a ticket – I would say just one ticket – and get asked – just one!!! Yes ! If anyone has ever watched the episode of Sex and the City, where Miranda, bought a house and she had to say just me over and over – that is how I felt. Even assumptions in the caravan park, where I tented for a couple of nights. I was on my own in the camp kitchen and was asked by some one – where are you guys from – I replied – I am from Melbourne and it is just me. It was quite funny and amusing, but I get it, as it is the social norm to be a couple especially travelling.
As the trip went on – I discovered so many advantages, of being on my own, I could eat when I was hungry, stay in places as long as I wanted. I think I spent 3 hours or more at some places, takings photo’s because I could. I could stop whenever I liked, did lot’s of U turns and went back to things.
I had a great hike to Wineglass Bay – did the walk to the beach and could take all the time I liked. Also a few other walks in area’s I visited.
I also joined in a bushwalking group for a week, with my parents and had a great time hiking including doing a over-nite hike exploring the area around Dover – and this also re ignited my passion for bushwalking. I have already put some feelers out to join some local clubs here so I can continue.
Enjoy some of my favourite pics, – will share more stories in the coming weeks.
