A few nights ago we caught an add on tv advertising serviced studios at Zero Davey Boutique Apartments in Hobart for AUD129. And this is where we checked in last night: cute little studio with kitchinette, washing machine and most of the trimmings.
Just had our second home cooked meal here 🙂

Leisurely start this morning and around 10am we set off to visit MONA: Museum of Old and New Art. We didn’t know what to expect, really, but I for one was blown away by the whole experience: the set-up, exhibits, the O (your own personal guide in the form of an iPod),… We left around 3:30pm, after a delicious late lunch in the cafe. If I ever make it back to Hobart I will definitely visit again!

We then drove up Mt Wellington only to be just about blown off the mountain by the fiercest winds I can recall ever having experienced! I’m serious, at one stage I was actually blown backwards while walking forward… or at least while trying to walk forward. No need to tell that since the light was fading fast it was a very short visit. But the few minutes we were there the views were simply stunning.
