After being in Airplanes for two days, we arrived in Launceston where Hugo and Ali picked us up.
We were a bit tired, so Hugo drove us to his house and we settled in. Have a look at the view from the living room window, doesn’t it look great?
We decided to have a short walk on the beach, just before sunset, here is a picture of the four of us 🙂
Hugo and Ali in working uniform, Ali had to go to work and so did Hugo, at least for a couple of days. That gave us enough time to get over the jetlag.
After two days we were all right and Hugo had time off work. He suggested that we’d have a look at Montezuma Falls, which were not too far from their house. We took the scenic route which included Waratah waterfall, a river crossing on a ferry and passing a dam.
When we arrived at Montezuma Falls carpark, the sun was shining deceptively. We ignored the rumbling we heard from afar and decided to leave our raingear in the car…Big Mistake.
After fifteen minutes of walking heavy clouds were coming in and thirty minutes into our three hour walk, it started to rain. It didn’t stop until we returned to the car. Anyway, it was fun and here are the pictures to proove that we really made it 😛
On the way back, Hugo tried to stay dry by holding a branch over his head. I guess he has to refine this method a bit.
Next day another excursion took us to Leven Canyon. This time the rain waited until we were back in the car 🙂
In Tasmania they have great Cheese factories. At one factory they had some cows displayed, we couldn’t resist playing with it.
Anyway, the time was flying and we had to leave again, one last breakfast and off we went to the airport.
On our flight from Launcheston to Melbourne we had a beautiful view from our window.
That was our last flight; we arrived back home after twenty month of traveling. The whole family picked us up from the airport. Silas was one month when we left, now he pulled Sigrid’s hand luggage. Things have changed while we were away!
At home we had diner together and talked a lot about our trip. It was nice to be home.
Thanks again to all people who made this trip so special!
… for now 🙂
Cheers, Thanks for reading, and go have an adventure!
Bjoern and Sigrid
