tasmania happens to be one of the most beautiful parts of australia. last weekend i had the pleasure of taking an extended break to the apple isle. we flew into launceston, drove to freycinet via st helens and coles bay (stopped at Jansz - methode tasmanoise obviously). in coles bay we stayed in the cutest little wooden cottage, went to wine glass bay (what a walk, make sure that you take your water and are prepared.. it is steep and unsuspecting.. especially if the only exercise you do, like me, is walking to the kitchen). from here we went to hobart and were very lucky to arrive just in time for snowbart. apart from the loveliest fresh produce everywhere you went, dinner at stillwater in launceston was most probably the culinary highlight, but the beautiful countryside was also captivating. this little getaway was like an entree into tasmania, i know i will certainly be heading back, any chance i get!
