Things I learned yesterday

  1. Tasmania is BEAUTIFUL. I want to go back there again, preferably for longer than 5 hours.
  2. When the ATM tells you you’ve exceeded the number of times you can get your PIN wrong, it means it.
  3. Having two credit cards doesn’t mean you actually have any money.
  4. People can be incredibly kind to you when you are frantic and penniless.
  5. Board meetings are no place for Creative People.
  6. Apparently there are no jobs in Hobart, which is why a Sydney engineer is a Hobart taxi driver.
  7. Not calling your partner back for hours after you’ve called in a state of panic is Not a Nice Thing To Do.
  8. Adrenaline is more filling than food.
  9. Trying to use the internet on your mobile sucks. Especially if you’re with Vodafone.


  1. Sorry to hear your trip was a frantic and stress-filled one. Most people leave the stress behind when they go to Tassie! I really hope you get to go back and visit the Apple Isle properly, it’s just beautiful and laidback. If I had the money I would move there in a heartbeat 🙂

    1. Now that I’ve seen it, I am dying to get back to Tassie. I was so enamoured with the place that I even found myself sitting in the front seat of the taxi (which I never do) and grilling the taxi driver about housing costs, job opportunities, population, cost of living, etc. as we headed toward the airport. Loved it there.
