Funny how things turn out, we were talking about Matthew’s plans to go to Bundy with a mate for 2 weeks or so after Boxing Day, then Mum says well I might go to Tassie then. Lots of talk, lots of phone calls and websites etc
Well now Mum, Grandad and I are going on a big jaunt.
Grandad will fly to Hobart round the 24th I guess and spend Christmas with Aunty Margaret and Co, as he is not up to sitting in a car for 2 days whilst Mum and I do the slingshot drive to Melbourne.
Mum and I are leaving Brisbane on Christmas Day to drive to Melbourne, arriving late Boxing Day and will catch the Spirit of Tasmania on the morning of the 27th to arrive in Devonport that night. The next morning we will meet up with Aunty Margaret, Grandad and Co to visit the Australian Axeman’s Hall of Fame.
Then we will lots of sightseeing, the first things to come to mind are the Cadbury Factory, The Cascade and James Boag Breweries and of course Bellerive Oval, where I am planning to go see the Cascade Tasmanian Tigers play the XXXX Gold QLD Bulls on Jan 2 :), which will be even cooler if our second cousin Aaron Nye is playing
Then we leave Devonport on the Spirit of Tasmania again on the night of the 9th of Jan and arrive in Melbourne on the 10th, where I will meet up with some Scrapping buddies before we start the drive back. We are still very undecided if we will take the coast or country route home.
