Mount Wellington provides a great aerial over Hobart
It is a Monday morning and Alex and I wake up remembering we don’t have to go to work today.
Alex and I are in the city of Hobart, which is located in the south east region of Australia’s most southern state of Tasmania, Australia.
Yesterday Alex and I visited historic Port Arthur, Richmond and Wrest Point Casino.
The plan for today is to take a stroll around Hobart (which is literally possible) before we head up to Mount Wellington to enjoy its stunning views over Hobart from its summit.

So, with that in mind, today I am taking Alex on his own personal Doors tour and he doesn’t even really like The Doors…. no way!
Luckily for us, I love The Doors!
Downtown LA ..so close but so far away
Today’s forecast is mid 20’s and Alex and I are set to do some retail therapy at the Citadel Outlet.
Alex and I are near the end of our USA holiday, finishing our trip with a 4 night stay in Venice Beach in sunny California.
