Tasmania – La Tierra de Van Diemen

Tasmania – La Tierra de Van Diemen

Exploring Tasmania aka Van Diemen’s Land has always been a dream of mine…

And dreams are meant to be turned into reality 🙂 !!

My adventure starts in Hobart in late January where I am warmly welcomed by Joanna and Rob, owners of Tassie Motor Shacks – Their company slogan “Life’s a Beach in a Tassie Motor Shack” appealed to me big time and certainly does their operation full justice. My set of wheels, a flash 4 people van, with a super cosy sleeping compartment on top (my ”penthouse”), was my castle and the most perfect mobile home I could only have wished for. I named it “Zeehaen” in memory of Abel Tasman’s ship. Looking at my huge mountain of gear (80kgs: 2 surfboards, 3 kiteboards, 4 kites, accessories & spareparts), Rob immediately got the drill out and I had an additional ‘hanging-boardrack’ in no-time that would make my life in the van a lot more comfortable. I glanced at him with a big grin of anticipation. Pulling out of the camper van depot and turning into the main street, that had the name “Surf Road”, that grin turned into a massive smile…

I could be writing a book about all the adventures that I lived during the 7200kms that I cruised all around Tassie 🙂
