I survived the man flu ! And then we left Launceston and had an amazing time in Tasmania! We also managed to find a pic of our seal buddy above and thought you’d like to have a laugh. So, TASMANIA! This Australian island state is truly wonderful. The state is named after Dutch explorer Abel Tasman, who made …

Hi Mum, hi friends! We’re off! The first week was, to be absolutely honest with you very very nightmarish. The ferry ride over on the Spirit of Tasmania was nice and calm. But then I decided to import the flu with me from our trip to Germany. With 39.2 degrees fever, Lydia took me to …

This week marks our anniversary when Lydia and I met for the first time! We decided to treat ourselves and Das Troopie to a movie night. It was a bit chilly, so we packed up a few cushions, sleeping bag, and snacks, of course. The Village cinema in Melbourne’s suburb Coburg is one of only three …
