Dinner Party with the Thailand


I'd like to introduce you to my Thai family. Next to me is Kandy, Nuchy and Sam (Korean). 

Kandy I have started calling Mamma bear, because she always looks after everyone and ensures we are always fed. Kandy has always been feeding E and I when we visit their house so in return E made them some Dinner. 

E cooked Tom Kha a thai dish - and they all loved it. They recommended a bit more salt but other than that almost everything got consume. 

This was our first dinner party one the moutain - first of many I hope.

Knyvet Falls


While we did the Pencil Pine Water Fall we did the Knyvet Falls. Being only 10min away from home we got to tick another walk off our list.

Again we walked thru thick forrest with beautiful scenery - you see the sun breaking thru the leaves and the cool breeze in the dark forrest. You follow the river back to the Falls where you just hear a rush of water falling. Its out of this world beautiful and E and I always have to get some selfies of course.

Pencil Pine Falls


Around the Mountain there is many walks you can loose yourself in. We are luck to live on the door stop of a world heritage site of natural beauty.

The Pencil Pine Falls is only 2 min walk from our room and a lovely walk it is - you walk thru some thick forrest and the day we choose to walk it was very frosty there was some icicles on some of the banks and under the water fall.

Its just such a peaceful environment to work in its just sometimes you don't feel like working. There is still a few more walks E and I are planning to do - you will see them soon.

Paradise Bridge


I have found driving in Tasmania that if you take a different turn it feels like you are in a completely different world, E and I took a different road home and drove thru a little town called Paradise and its really is paradise, its just beautiful. E and I came across this bridge people drive over to and from town as you would do, We just had to stop and ended up staying there for some time. 

There is some table where you can stop and have a picnic. E and I had some Tea and defiantly took heaps of photos. Perfect reason to use my new camera but I never charged it and so no use. E on the other hand had his so never fear E was there. 

He will be posting some of his photo's on his Tumblr (Here

I love Tasmania I don't think I could ever leave - Sorry mum you will have to move here.

Mini Adventure - Mole Creek

Leaving to mountain we are aware that sleeping in Van Gogh will be freezing and its mandatory to cuddle. This mini adventure E and I stayed in Mole Creek - its about 1hour and 30mins away from 'home' and have only 600 odd people living in the little town.

Mole Creek is well known for its honey and apparently accounts for 35 presents of Tasmania's honey production. Although E and I did not know that and never got to visit a honey farm. There is some caves you can visit but E and I made the decision that all caves are the same and its not worth the money to see what we have seen before.

Devils Gullet


When E and I have a few days off we always try and do as much as possible in Tasmania as its not like after this adventure we will have the opportunity to do it again.

So E and I took off and started ticking off our list of "To Do's". Next on our list was the Devils Gullet - driving on a dirt road and hoping we don't get stuck in the mud E and I took off on a 20min drive to the top of a mountain. As soon as you get to the top you get this beautiful view of mountain peaks as far as the eye can see, you can even see Cradle Mountain. Looked so close but in reality its was a few hours driving away. 

Plunging 220Metres below is know as the Devils Gullet, it was carved out by ice and water moving off the plateau and down the valley. The huge rock columns are formed for dolerite and joints between them have been thawing. Eventually rock boulders topple off, giving rise to extensive boulder fields or scree slopes. This is a good example of the landscape continuing to evolve today.

Mini Adventure - Tamar Valley

E and I had a few days off and planned on getting off the mountain - this of course means we end up going to one of the cities and Launceston was one of them. We seem to go to "Launi" as its more of a city of us - not much old people seem to be there (as mean as that sounds - its true, Devenport seems to be much like Albany)

Anyway we of course didn't realise the day we went to town was actually a sunday so to much of the shops were open - just our luck. So we ended up going to the Tamar Valley which we have been told is the wine area - but we didn't go to any of the winers instead stayed at the  lovely little spot in the valley looking over the river. Its beautiful - this is always were E and I told each other every single secret we have never told each other. 

No I can defiantly say that E knows everything of me. Although some times E told me I wasn't very happy to be told but I am glad I know this now.

Its nice to get off the mountain sometimes.

Tasmanian Devil - Mole Creek TAS

After driving past it once I made E promise we are going to go back the next time we are off the mountain to go see the BIG Tasmanian Devil - and we did!!

Its outside an Tasmanian wildlife part where they focus on breading Tasmanian Devils who are on the endangered list. E and I did not go into the part but stopped on the side of the road and quickly snapped some photos. 

I don't have any history on the why and when of the BIG thing but I have done it and I am very proud of it 6 more to go in Tasmania ... let hope I get to see and snap photo's with them before we leave the state.
