Summer in My Sweden #2

We departed Falkenberg and arrived at Kronogården between Skövde och Mariestad in the afternoon and were introduced to a cake in the fridge for our use. That was a very nice thought coming from our hosts.

Spring in My Sweden

After more than 40 years in Australia, and a few visits to Sweden, I still have my favourite memories of my birth country. I grew up with walks in the woods. Often to pick wildflowers. As far as I know, it’s still allowed to pick the White Wood Anemones, but not so the Blue WoodContinue reading “Spring in My Sweden”

Varied Weather, Varied Nature, Varied Places, Tasmania

In Tasmania you will probably have varied weather with one day of clouds and rain, but the next day could be filled with perfect sunshine. Here are some photos to show the variety. First you have the view from Mount Wellington, close to Hobart, on a cloudy, rainy day. Below is the view from theContinue reading “Varied Weather, Varied Nature, Varied Places, Tasmania”

Hellyer Gorge, Gondwanaland, Tasmania

We had planned our route in advance when driving through Tasmania and were up in the northwest heading towards the Cradle Mountain – Lake St Clair National Park. In doing so we ended up at Hellyer Gorge, more or less by accident. When we saw the not so imposing sign at the roadside, we nevertheless hadContinue reading “Hellyer Gorge, Gondwanaland, Tasmania”

A Day Cruise on the Gordon River, Strahan, Tasmania

We planned to have an exciting day on the Gordon River onboard the Lady Franklin and had chosen The Captain’s Premier Upper Deck seating with the company of the Captain as a guide. We chose this way to travel just from reading the description on the net. What was on offer sounded pretty good to us. The Captain’s Premier UpperContinue reading “A Day Cruise on the Gordon River, Strahan, Tasmania”

Do You Write for Profit or Pleasure?

I write for pleasure and have done so for many years. I haven’t had the right inclination to try and get published. However, recently I completed my latest story and just have to give it hope. I’ve also started on a sequel where I’m up to more than 24,000 words right now. Yes, it’s  going great. When I dreamContinue reading “Do You Write for Profit or Pleasure?”

Trip to Tjukayirla Roadhouse

  Now, if you like, come with me on one of my trips to this part of the world. It will only take a minute or two. We rise early in the morning of a wintry June, some years ago, but I don’t remember the exact year right now. The 4-wheel drive is packed andContinue reading “Trip to Tjukayirla Roadhouse”

Great Central Road

Four Camels on Great Central Road are Better than Ten Camels at the Zoo. Today I’m gong to draw on old memories. This wasn’t going to be a once, in a lifetime trip, but we haven’t been back to the Great Central Road. We have seen new places with similar landscapes, but it was somethingContinue reading “Great Central Road”
