Tasmania holds a lot of wildlife, wild and other. While driving at night we saw dozens of wallabies and possums, and driving during the day we saw countless roadkill. Not only that though, in a free exhibit in a public park in Launceston, we saw a whole troop of Japanese Macaques! It's apparently been a … Continue reading Adventures in Tasmania Part 6: You’ve Gotta Be Echidna Me!
Ok, I admit, I really only wanted to go see Grindelwald because I just finished re-reading Harry Potter and visiting a town named after the defeated dark lord tickled me. In reality though, Gindelwald is a town founded by Dutch immigrant Roelf Vos and decorated like a little Swiss village.

There are two caves that you can go into in Mole Creek, the … Continue reading Adventures in Tasmania Part 2: Glow Big or Glow Home
We recently got back from a little over two weeks in Tasmania! We wanted give Tasmania its fair due and see a lot of it, but we tried to do it on as strict a budget as possible. We didn't really have a plan for what we were going to do for our time in … Continue reading Adventures in Tasmania Part 1: HelpX, they need somebody!
Where do I start?! It's been a long time! For the last few months I barely felt like I had time to write or do much else because I was working so much. I still found time to go on occasional cool mini-adventures (which I'll catch you up on later) but I was spending an … Continue reading Much Ado About Everything!
