Summer holiday in Tasmania
My lovely hubby and I are in the process of planning a trip to Tasmania with a few days in Melbourne at the end. We live in Cairns, Queensland and have been to Tasmania only once before, in the winter of 2007. We took that trip to decide if we would like to live in Tassie, and the answer was an unconditional yes. Since then we have been working steadily through bringing out the best in our lovely old Queenslander house in preparation for selling it and making the move. I was born in Cairns and have lived here for 40 years and Eric has been here for almost 30 years, and we are longing to be in a very different climate. This trip will be our first experience of our new (future) home state in the summer. We have observed that Tasmania summer temperatures are almost the exact equivalent our the Cairns winter - ranging roughly from 12 to 25 degrees most of the time! A couple of years ago we read someone inexplicably referring to the "long, hot summers of Tasmania" and we have been laughingly referring to them this way ever since.
As will become clear as this blog proceeds, we are enthusiasts and we are particularly enthusiastic about food and weather.
