Location: Launceston, Australia

MapWell, back in Launceston after spending the last 5 or so days driving around. Cradle Mountian was just incrediable - views, lakes and walks and the log cabins - something from an old movie complete with possoums running around during the night. I have really enjoyed this trip and although Alex may not be the best, he tried hard. Tassie is a wonderful place and I would say a must for everyone that visits Australia. It has such a different feel and yet is so close. It is still a cheap place to live and to buy land, 15 acres and 4 bedroom house for approx 250,000 sterling - not bad - just don't think that there is that much work on the island.

Tassie has two major towns, Hobart and Launceston, both coastal and both with airports. I am in Launceston and have reached that point of saving, just another town but I think that prehaps an early night and a bath will find me in a better mood for tomorrow. As much as the driving is being done by someone else, travelling is hard work at times
