A well-earned break


As I may have mentioned in passing, Bike Boy and I are off this coming weekend for some fun and frivolity in lovely, lovely Tasmania. We have a long-standing love affair with Tassie, having spent a fun weekend there looooong ago in our early 20s, and we enjoyed it so much, we went back there for our honeymoon. Back in prehistoric times, y'know.

We returned about 5 years ago for a relaxing week sans children, and once again had a memorable holiday. If you've never been out on a boat and eaten crayfish that were crawling around on the ocean floor only half an hour before, you haven't lived. (Let's just gloss over the bit where I was horribly, horribly seasick.... OK, so it was actually a combination of the hangover from hell AND the motion of the ocean... moving on....)

So a couple of months ago, we were out to dinner with some friends and I think that just maybe rather a lot of wine had been drunk and someone had the brilliant idea that the four of us should go to Tassie for a weekend. Amazingly, it all came together - airfares, accommodation and a hire car are all booked and we're off on Friday arvo.

Woohoo!

Enjoy your holiday. There's always a mountain or two to run up if you overindulge :D

Lucky you! I went there on a camping trip when I was 18. That was when I learnt that apple cider is not good for you at all. I will also gloss over the horrendous hang-over.
Have a great break.
