Travelogue: Australia part three – Tasmania

Today we’re welcoming Sarah Arnoff back with part three of her Australian travelogue. We’re following on from part one, which covered Sydney and part two, which took a look at Brisbane. Welcome to part three, the beautiful island of Tasmania. Over to you, Sarah.   If you only have six days on the rugged and rural island of Tasmania, do whatever you can to procure more time there.

After the first day of trudging...

My aunt picked me up a 1948 Ferrania Rondine box camera (127 format!) at a yard sale a while back and it’s been used sparingly over the years, mostly sitting on a shelf in my house gathering dust. I don’t shoot too 127 incredibly often, so it’d been a good while since I had last used it. I decided to crack it open and give it a deep clean and bring it along on a little day trip my husband and I were going on with a house guest…and, of course, I left the cleaning until the very last possible...
