A MINI-BREAK IN HOBART, TASMANIA

A MINI-BREAK IN HOBART, TASMANIA

Last week I was on a short mini-break in Tasmania to de-stress, enjoy life and just have a break from my day-to-day working live (managing a hotel is not as easy as most of you will think, its a high-stress job I tell ya).

I will be writing lots of cool guides etc about my holiday, but I thought I would share some pictures and a daily guide first. So this post is a sort of photo diary, but then better. (I think)

MINI GUIDE TO OOTMARSUM, NETHERLANDS

MINI GUIDE TO OOTMARSUM, NETHERLANDS

I think pretty much 100% of the people following my blog have never heard of this small town before. Heck, I am certain if I would ask a Dutchman, most of them would say they don’t know where this little town is located. And, I can’t blame you. It is a pretty small town in the East of the Netherlands, and there is not a whole lot happening.

You might wonder, why the heck would I write a post about it then?
Well, this town is where my family originated. My family is super small and we have an unusual last name, so it is pretty easy to track our history (well we didn’t even have to do that, cause my grandpa is the first of the family to leave his village for love nawwwwwwwwwww).

The town is actually very cute and went I was back home last September and I visited it with my parents. I took a bunch of photos which I would like to share with you. Additionally, I will give you some basic information, in case you are ever in the area and would like to check it out.

A TRAVEL GUIDE TO THE ANCIENT CITY | ROME, ITALY

Rome is a city that has an amazing mix of old and new. A city that has kept its stunning and historic buildings whilst moving along in the modern world. You can wander the quaint cobblestone streets with a delicious gelato in your hand whilst walking from one stunning and impressive monument to the next.

From the Spanish steps to the world-famous Colosseum and Vatican City, this city has so much to offer.

Of course, being an Italian city, the city is also a foodie’s heaven, from the best gelato to pizza and pasta, you might come back with a few extra kilos of ‘baggage’.

HOBART TRAVEL GUIDE

HOBART TRAVEL GUIDE

Hobart in Tasmania is a hidden little gem. I absolutely fell in love with the cute little city during my mini-break in March this year. The city has the charm of an old harbour town, with lots of historic buildings, a cute harbour and lots of pretty views. 

Just a short scoot over Bass Straight and you’re in a magical land that’s so naturally beautiful it takes your breath away. There’s mountains, forests, national parks and rustic oceans for days. In my opinion, this makes Hobart the perfect place to relax from city life or just a great place for a mini getaway.

In this post, you will find lots of information on what to do, see and eat when traveling to Hobart, the capital city of Australia’s island state Tasmania.

CATCHING A SUNSET AT TARONGA ZOO WHARF

CATCHING A SUNSET AT TARONGA ZOO WHARF

A couple of weeks ago I ventured over to Taronga Zoo Wharf for some sunset photography. I am sure you guys must be getting tired of my attempts to take decent pictures, but hold your horses cause here is another one of those posts.

This was a very beautiful sunset though that just kept on giving and just got better and better as time went on. So what can you do then just keep taking picture after picture! I ended up with more than 300 pictures of just one silly sunset. I won’t be uploading all of those cause I think my site will crash, but I will be handpicking the best of the best (well, my best, you know what I mean) and take you along a romantic blog post ….

Tasmania is just off the coast from Melbourne and has been a bucket list item for me for a long time. This stunning place has some of the most amazing landscapes, food, and beaches that you will ever see in your life! Much to my surprise, it is full of a lot of lush bush area and mountains, incredible blue beaches and lots of funky, hip little shops? I’m not quite sure why, but all this time I thought Tasmania was going to be much like Uluru – brown on brown on brown…. what was I thinking Dol! lol!

SYDNEY’S MILLION DOLLAR VIEW | OBSERVATORY HILL AT NIGHT

SYDNEY’S MILLION DOLLAR VIEW | OBSERVATORY HILL AT NIGHT

For a park with a million dollar view, it’s hard to go past the one on Observatory Hill. The park offers sweeping, panoramic views of Sydney Harbour and the Harbour Bridge right in the city center. Which sounds like the perfect night out for me and my trusty camera.

So on a cold summers evening (Sydney, what the heck are you doing), I went to Observatory Hill for a sunset and night shoot.

In his post, I will show you some of my best shots as well as some advice on what works and what does not work.
