Internet. NEVER take it for granted. Here in Tasmania it is unBELIEVABLY expensive... right now I am paying a dollar for 9 minutes of internet. AND... there is nowhere for me to upload pictures. So... unfortunately... I will not be telling you what I have been doing in Tasmania until I am at a place where I can post pictures...
because honestly, the pictures would make the post SO much better. I will tell you a bit though.
Tasmania is still beautiful. I mean, I have been traveling ALL over with this tour, and EVERYWHERE you go, there is something beautiful to look at! Mountains, rainforests, waterfalls, beaches, even the picturesque towns... it's fantastic.
The weather on the last couple of days has been MUCH better by the way. Not too hot, not too cold, it's been in the 70's (farenheit) and it is PERFECT.
Oh, and the tour I have been on has been wonderful. We've seen SO much, and I've taken SO many pictures, so you guys will have an eyeful when they are all uploaded. Also you'll have a lot to read, since I'll have to talk about 5 days of tasmania. I'm going to write down notes so hopefully I don't forget anything but man I wish I could upload the pictures now!
Anyhow, I guess I will explain the whole snake bit. Hah, it's actually funny... Karen and Cliff and Alissa and I were sitting in the grass under a tree... suddenly I felt something bite me on my back and it (of course) scared me so I may have jumped out of my skin just a BIT. Turned out, Alissa was playing with a rubber snake, and stretching it and accidetnally let go so it snapped on my back. That is the closest I have come to seeing a wild snake in Australia :( But, 2 people saw 2 different snakes on our hike yesterday! Not me though. Sigh. Now for your trivia for the day... Tasmania only has 3 varieties of snakes, and ALL of them are poisonous.
OK guys, I must be off since I am running out of time and I still have to do a bit of internet research... but I would like to welcome Elana to our little group :) She seems to have taken the place of Cheryl who doesn't seem to find it IMPORTANT to comment on my blog anymore! Cheryl, what's up? I need to feel the love of ALL my sisters. Stacy has an excuse, Vegas and Sickness, but what is yours? And don't say bunnies!
Bye for now!
