Where in heavens name is Vandiemans Land
Er indoors and I are off on a voyage of rediscovery on Jan-26-05. For the inquisitive check it out on Google.
I first visited Vandiemans Land Jan-8-1946, shortly after repairs to the ship I served on; The 'HMS King Geoge V', a huge Battleship during WW2, called into Hobart while on its journey home to England.
Unfortunately the ship was booked out for the Jan- 6-05 sailing, however, the sea journey from Sydney to Devonport; on the north of Vandiemans Land takes 22 hours, my darling and I are taking our car and have a cabin to our selves. Total cost for the return sea journey and ten days motel accom is estimated at less than Aus-$2,000, or US $1,500 plus spending money, the cost of the car on the ship is included.
Keep your eye on this website early Feb for this fabulous story of rediscovery to unfold. I hope to return with a host of TASMANIAN jokes to unleash onto my Nth American and Brit bloggers about Australias only Island State 'TASMANIA'. For your next seagoing experience it must be 'THE SPIRIT OF TASMANIA'.
