I am alive! Just sulking over the fact that the holidays are over. Yes its been a week since work started and I am still sulking over the by gone holidays.
During the break, SS and I flew over to Tasmania. It was so good (& it was much needed). It started off with our flight tickets being free. Well, sort of free. I paid for the entire trip using my Qantas Frequent Flyer points! Perks of being a jet setter 😀 And booked into a 4 star mystery hotel via Wotif.com for $110 per/night. I was excited when I booked the rooms but was a bit disappointed to see the hotel. Best Western Hotel will only get an “average” for its facilities & sophistication. Anyways, we had just 4 days and we did not plan to spend too much time in the hotel. I only had 3 things in my to-do list:
- Go to Mt. Wellington
- Go to the Penitentiary Chapel Historic Site
- Pig out on the local produce at Salamanca Markets
SS had only 1 thing in his list:
- Get beer and laze in the beach
Well, Salamanca Markets and beach did not happen. The famous Salamanca markets apparently only happens on weekends – bad research on my end. And hobart’s beaches aren’t easily accessible – closest one about an hour via local bus. But we managed a few other things:
- Bus tour of Hobart
- No Mercy Strolling Theatre performance
- Bruny Island Tour – this is where we got to do taste a lot of local produce
How was your holiday? Are you done sulking that the holidays are gone? I think I will need a couple more weekends before this feeling wears off.
