What I love about Tasmania…

Tasmania is a wonderful place to explore. Here are the reasons I think it should be on your list of places to visit:

  • The people are so friendly and helpful and genuinely want you to have a fantastic stay.
  • The individual, old-fashioned feel which pervades all Tasmania.
  • The divine farm stalls with home-grown and homemade produce.
  • Picking blackberries in the wild.
  • The tiny bays and inlets with bobbing boats tied to the jetty.
  • Wonderful boutiques, quirky shopping and stylish finds.
  • Tasty food ~ especially the fresh oysters and scallop pies.
  • Historic architecture.
  • The amazing not-to-miss Mona.
  • The buzzing cafes and restaurants.
  • Lovely hotels and guesthouses.
  • Picturesque bush walks and sights.

So pack your bags and go, go, go to the apple isle ~ Tasmania…you’ll love it!

The music of the universe is all pervading and it is composed on forty different levels. Your destiny is the level where you will play your tune. You might not change your instrument but how well to play is entirely in your hands.” The Forty Rules Of Love by Elif Shafak…
