Hop to Hobart

During our stay in Hobart our abode was a converted warehouse apartment in Sullivan's Cove. Inside was a crisp, fresh white with hints of green in pot plants and miniature courtyards indoors. No matter the weather, being in these apartments instantly felt like walking into summer. Not long after arriving in Hobart we had lunch at a minor fish chippery on the water. I instantaneously saw that the town and it's architecture was very colonial - but go figure that's what it's known for.

The Mona museum is bar far the most intricate and amazing designed one I have ever walked through. Most galleries and museum I usually endure and try to see the excitement in it but this one just blew me away. The only downside was some of the displays really put me off, so much so that I can't even bare to type it out. The Mona gave me a great first impression walking down the spiral staircase with the lift in the center. You start from the bottom of the museum and make your way up. Walking through the convoluted passageways I noticed the detail of lighting and how it was done in such a way to make certain corners glow. The juxtaposition of some rooms was interesting going through a room full of flashing lights, walking through a dark tunnel cave leading to a light then entering a bright room. Yet some things were quite redundant. Highly commended.

First night's dinner outing to Smolt restaurant - Italian and Spanish influenced modern Australian restaurant. Taking the stairs 5 levels down to elude the lift. Duck. Chickpea cubes with sheep yogurt. Monica and Jacinta on our last day's breakfast.

We happened to go to Hobart at a fortuitous time. Rarely do they get such beautiful weather. Our view from our balcony was serene and quite evidently picturesque in the mornings. Jacinta having soy soaked oats for breakfast (prepared overnight. Must try! Add some nuts and fruits for flavour)

Monica and I about to go on a speed boat on pretty rocky seas with beautiful natural untouched views. The ride wasn't all as peaceful as the pictures are perceived to be... pretty damn scary actually.

Spent our second last day at the Cadbury factory which was an utter let down before visiting the Cascade brewery which had a cute little Thai-style garden. On our last day we had an antipasto lunch at the Morilla winery at the Mona museum. It was tranquil with views you don't often get to see. I loved the perky touch of the pink fatboys to laze around on outside.
