Ok, so I’ve decided to write a blog of some of the walks I’ve been on, mostly because I know how hard it can be to find information on conditions, routes, times, difficulty etc without constantly pestering friends, and because I know how grateful I’ve been to the people who have shared with me, and to the information I’ve found on the internet.
At 28 or 29 I decided that life must be about more than work, at the same time that I fell in love with Tassie mountains and wilderness. For a few years all my non-working time was spent out and about in the thick of it, or planning the next adventure. I had a period where I was a little more sedate: juggling the best job in the world and all the ongoing personal study that it requires, lots of real tennis, tutoring and marking at uni, a very special person and a few key friends, gardening, visiting the beach and the odd bit of travel (back when that was a thing). That meant I visited the mountains less frequently, and new ones were like blue moons. But that’s changed again. At Easter my special person died all too soon and completely unexpectedly, and so I have returned to the mountains to find myself again. Expect to see a few new posts this year and over summer especially.
I hope this blog inspires people to visit some of the beautiful places in Tassie, and to want to make sure that they’re around for generations to come. So peruse the photos, read my ramblings if you want, and most of all take care out there!!
