Where I stayed
Its me your favourite podder Thom, I dont appear very often, but thats good becuase it means my casts are more sought after, or thats what Im telling myself anyway.
Ben woke up in a stinking mood!!! we both didnt sleep well at all, and we had to be up early to check out of the hostel and move on. We arnt really moving on, where moving about a mile away becuase this hostel is full this weekend. All the other hostels where grabbing for our business when they heard we had come on the market again!! infact, nobody wanted us in truth. lol
We finally managed to get in the central city backpackers, which is as it says on the tin, central in the city!
So today we went to a place called the Huon Valley. Tasmanians are obsessed with their forestry!!! there are so many look out points all around the state/island. This is a special one tho. Its called the air walk. Its a maze of steal walkways suspended over 50 metres about the rainforest floor in the canopy of the trees, its an amazing spectical, and both me and ben agreed that it cant be described or photographed to show what it is truely like. The maze ends with a 25 metre long cantilever about the river below!! now that is amazing, it emerges from the trees out over the valley!! truely awsume views!! it does kind of sway a bit, and if ur not one for heights like me, takes some courage to go out there!!
we came back to find , as per usual Hobart has shut down at 1pm. This is no joke, non of the restuarants are open at weekends, not evn the take aways, we managed to find after walking around the whole cbd, one indian and one pizza takeaway. so we plummed for the pizza, and it was yummy!!!
we have now been a bit tight and have gone back to our hostel we where previously staying in becuase they offer free wi-fi in the bar. so thats where we are now, ben is reading da vinci code, or what ever we decide to call it today, anmimal farm etc.....
Thats it really folkes, im not the greatest of writers, or directional person eitha as ben has found out!!
p.s. ben quotes, he has come out with some crackers over the last few weeks, so i dnt forget them im gnna blog them when i remember them
1. I asked ben if he thought ainsley harriet is funny, and ben said is that the one thats married to dawn french, so i replied by saying no thats lenny henery, and ben said "so, makes no difference, there both black"
I was appauled by this comment from ben!!!
2. "If that old man steals that table from us, im gonna club him over the head with a life ring, oooooh how ironic"
just what goes on in his mind!!
more to follow, i just cant remember them!
