4 Seasons at the Milford Track

Yes, we did the Milford track. And yes, you bet we have tons of pictures to share with you.
Some of the people we’ve met before have defined it as a “walk in a park”… Well, I must say it was a pretty long and very wet park…

Of course, as you know me – it will take me a while to summarize a 4 day and almost 65 km (detailed distance calculations will obviously follow) track, so hope that I’ll be able to convey at least partly the excitement of it. Some tips are at the end as well. Continue Reading…

Cradle Mountain National Park, Tasmania – Day 9

Our 9th day in Tassie actually begins on the previous night. As we arrived to our camp site we found out that we are located right at the entrance to the Cradle Mountain National Park itself, which means that nature and its wildlife is right outside our Campervan’s door (no kidding, one Wallaby actually ate his dinner right outside of our Campervan).
