I’m not a fan of Summer, and being that it’s currently Winter down here in Australia, I thought this month I would share with you the mini album I made of our last family holiday in April.
I also wanted to tempt y’all to come visit our amazing and beautiful country, you know right now the exchange rate is really good!
It’s a Simple Stories SN@P! binder (8×6) with inserts. It was a prize I got last year. I coloured it with acrylic paints and stamped with bubble wrap. I use pocket pages frequently in my travel albums as I always have more images than journalling. This is the second page with a map of central Hobart, so I could pinpoint our accommodation. Also some pics of the beautiful old stone buildings in the heart of town.
We caught the ferry to MONA, the Museum of Old and New Art, a private Gallery owned and built by a local Hobart boy who made a motza with internet gambling, this is one of his ways of giving back. We paid for the the best seats which were inside with complementary drinks and canapes, delish. MONA was amazing, not sure I liked all the exhibits but they were thought-provoking, and the grounds were exquisite. If you ever get to Hobart, it’s a must see. The serving boy on the ferry looked pretty hot in his uniform too. And some pics of the grounds …….We took a wilderness cruise down to the Great Southern Ocean It was more like a 3 hour jet boat ride. We checked out some fur seal colonies! The males live separately from the females and babies, and boy do they smell. It’s good to have the wind at your back when viewing the blokes. We were lucky to spot two albatross on the way back too. Again, another brilliant experience, highly recommended! There are plenty of other pages that I won’t bore you with. They are chock full of stories and pics. I do however want to tease you with some pretty pictures in an effort to tempt you to plan a trip downunder. Our land is an incredible experience you really must have at least once in your life, and right now you get $1.37 to the US dollar!
These photos were all taken by me with my Nikon D90 set on auto (yep, I cheated). First some sceneryAnd now the native animals. We got to pat the koala, and a wombat, as well as feed the kangaroos. Not the Tassie devil, they bite.If you got to here, thank you for reading my post. Now go make some holiday plans to come on down, you know you want to!!
