I took the flight from Bangkok to Sydney, where I caught a connecting domestic flight to Hobart, the capital of Tasmania.

Landed at Hobart airport and making our way to the city (St. Ives Apartment).

Our flight took around 2 hours from Sydney Kingsford Smith airport to Hobart International airport (an international airport which only seem to accommodate charter flights from New Zealand apart from mainland Australia). It’s a small and convenient airport so the walk from the plane to the baggage carousel is only a few steps.   St. […]

A magic moment with Great Barrier Reef Scenic Flights.

One of my fondest memories from that trip was taking the boat from Cairns to do snorkeling at the “Great Barrier Reef”. Honestly my knowledge about Australia before that first trip started and ended […]

Walking around Dove Lake – Cradle Mountain–Lake St Clair National Park Tasmania in the summer

Walking around Dove Lake – Cradle Mountain–Lake St Clair National Park Tasmania in the summer

Tasmania island (65,022 sq.km.) is of around the same size as Sri Lanka (67,655 sq.km.) or approximately twice the size of Taiwan (35,883 sq.km.) The whole island got only around half million inhabitants mostly descendants of western settlers. Somehow the first settlements by the Aborigines don’t appear to have created any impressive remains, much the […]

Just another day in New Zealand. We were in the largest city of New Zealand’s South Island “Christchurch”.

Canton Tower – China’s tallest building.

Canton Tower – China’s tallest building.

There are numerous towers around the world; most of them are major landmarks of their own cities being visible from a far distance, but without careful design and construction they would have been mere ugly huge concrete sticks. The world’s most recognized towers would inevitably include the Eiffel Tower (Paris/France), one of the most beautiful […]

In this […]
