Amy and Steve have an adventure!

Downtown Hobart

SUNDAY, 22 May 2022 - Amy landed in Hobart around 2:30pm!  After a 40 hour travel day thru Atlanta, Los Angeles, and Sydney, she made it to Hobart.   We drove to our hotel in downtown Hobart, the RACV Hobart, threw her stuff in our room, and tried to find something light to eat to hold us over until dinner.  In Hobart, things close up early downtown on a Sunday evening, so our pickings were slim.  We ended up getting a meat pie at “Banjos”,which looks very similar to a Panera Bread franchise.

MONDAY, 23 May 2022 - After a great English breakfast at the hotel, Amy and I packed up to check out.  The hotel had us staying thru Wednesday, which was from an old email weeks ago.  We got it worked out.  We first drove up to Mt. Wellington, and drove as far as we could, and then stopped at the visitors center to get a WONDERFUL overview of Hobart.  Great weather all around!

We then drove on to the little town of Richmond, which had an old jail that housed prisoners in transit across Tasmania.  From there, we
