Life in Tasmania's Huon Valley, by a blow-in from the mainland
Friday, February 3, 2012
Passengers on this
ship photographed last weekend from Constitution Dock certainly got
lucky with the weather. I hadn't realised that Hobart was such a frequently used port for passenger cruises until I read an article in The Mercury about it last year. Check out the Tasports schedule
to see just how many are due between now and March. Late last year I met Christina from Premier Travel Tasmania, a local company offering premium tours to primarily European visitors. When cruise ships come into Hobart or Burnie, her team is kept very busy taking groups of passengers on tours around Tasmania. As well as English speakers, they need to accommodate speakers of different languages arriving from Europe.
Escaped Sydney in 2010 for a piece of paradise in Tasmania's Huon Valley. I'm a keen walker, remote worker, incompetent gardener, Bernese Mountain Dog owner, fan of almost anything German (food, language, cars, beer), amateur linguist, chook fancier, childfree.
