I am a lucky girl :)

Farmers' Markets - Hobart, Tasmania Part 4

More photos from Hobart trip in September 2012 (finally posting up the last batch).
In addition to Salamanca markets, there are a few Farmers' markets around the city held on Sundays. We read about this particular one in a travel brochure from our hotel and decided to check it out. For anyone visiting Hobart, a treck to the local markets for Tassie's fresh produce is highly recommended!

A Melbourne New Years 2013


For the second time in 2012, we decided to visit Melbourne again during the Xmas/NY break. 

We visited our favourite cafes and alleways but also discovered quirky shops and extravagant bookshops which we loved. During our stay, we explored other tourist spots around Melbourne we didn't get to visit last time such as Docklands, Chapel St and Brighton Beach.
Fireworks in Melbourne aren't quite as impressive as Sydney's but sitting along Yarra River to welcome 2013 with the special someone was memorable nonetheless :)

Salamanca Markets - Hobart, Tasmania Part 2


It's all hip and happening in Hobart - it's listed as one of the Top 10 cities by Lonely Planet.
On our first day in Hobart, we went to Salamanca Markets, one of the largest markets in the Southern Hemisphere. As the article puts it:
Perhaps Hobart's most famous attraction is the Salamanca Markets, held every Saturday rain or shine since 1973. From Hmong migrants selling fresh vegetables to family fudge producers handing out samples of their wares, the outdoor market offers a real taste of Tasmania with a backdrop of historic sandstone warehouses dating back to the 1830s. The markets are at their best in spring and summer when local artisan producers come to town to sell everything from fresh fruit to handicrafts.
What we enjoyed most about Salamanca Market were the food and produce stalls as it offered the chance to try out Tassie's local produce - tempura mushrooms, anyone? We must have tried at least five different stalls but justified ourselves since you don't get markets like these back in Sydney.

 Okay, fine, that and we just like to eat a lot  :)
