Escaping the winter (Dec 2020 - Jan 2021) by going to the south side of the planet. Tasmania was on my bucket list for a long time. Not sure why but it was. Highlight for us was the 3 Capes hike over the xmas holiday. After that it was a tour of wine, beer and oysters. A great way to recover from 4 days of hiking and eating noodles and oatmeal. This was also the terrible year of fires in Australia, and indeed Tasmania was on fire, but not where we had planned to be.
