Tasmania #1


If you've read my earlier posts you would know that I flew to Tasmania with my family right after my Valedictory. We were joined by my auntie and also my cousin from Sydney. We travelled across Tasmania by car, from Launceston - Bicheno - Hobart - Strahan - Launceston.

Tasmania is ridiculously like New Zealand. 
Underpopulated, but the perfect place to embrace the nature and unwind. 

We landed at Launceston airport and had lunch at one of the rather well known tourist spots in town, Stillwater. Whether you boil the water or add salt into the water it's still gonna be water *badumtss

I should give up, that didn't even sound like a joke.

Sherlyn, my cousin from Sydney got us La Duree macaroons ! I need to write a blogpost proclaiming my love for these sweet little treasures. Really. 

Our first stop from Launceston was Bicheno. The first underpopulated town we encountered in Tasmania.

Couldn't find a restaurant that was still open at 7+ so we had to go tapao some burgers from a convenient store and eat it near the beach.

Where we were swarmed on by birds. I hate birds. They're like the animals I hate the most after cats. Sorry ok bird lovers, I don't like things that swoop in on my food.

As underpopulated as it can be, the view is magnificent.

Even spotted wild penguins in between the rocks.

My dad certainly enjoyed it. haha ! We made him do the Gangnam style poses everywhere we go. Time to make him his very own 'Gangnam Style Diaries'

Lavender Farm 
It wasn't even blooming season so boohoo no lavenders for us.

Mum got pretty engrossed and started counting all the petals. Love this picture. Looks like it came out from an emo MV where the boy likes this girl who likes taking pics of lavenders.

Since there were no flowers, we chilled out at the cafe

Lavender scones.
Unbelievably tasty and so worth the try. It's not colouring or flavouring you see there but actual food made out of lavender.

Wine glass bay

The adults approve of the mountain air.

Tourist fatty.

We went on a 40 minutes mountain walk up to see wine glass bay. Apparently it's called wine glass bay not only because it's shaped as a wine glass but also because they used to kill whales on that bay and there was alot of blood spill, resembling wine.

How can there be a blogpost with no pictures of me. Impossible.
I gained like a million kgs.

The wine glass bay. There are various mountain walks you can take. If you're feeling hardcore enough, there's even one that goes for a day or two.

Tasmania is famous for their seafood so how can we miss out on it.

Lobsters, Oysters, Mussels, Scallops.
Tasmania's seafood is really one of the best. Love it.

That's it for now.
