We are officially on the road! Saying goodbyes was difficult but quickly moving from place to another and trying to stay alive in free camping spots with a tent in 9 degrees (more on this amateur camping journey later..) takes your mind of sunny Sydney and all the fun people are having in Bondi.
Arriving to Hobart
Tip 1: Bus from the airport to the city centre is $19 one-way - not ideal for a couple of cheap budget travellers like us. Find a person to share an Uber with you an boom, saved at least six dollars!
As we are here only for 2 weeks, we didn't want to buy/rent a camper van. Regular car and tent it is. However cooking equipment and basic camping stuff was badly needed and since the Hobart city centre only hosts the more expensive shops a 20min we started our roadtrip with a drive to outlet hub and Anaconda store. Also because we are pro-campers after all, we spent (the best investment ever made) $35 for a duvet and pillows in Target.
Shop list (aka "Could have brought a lot of this with us from Sydney):
- Propane bottles
- Knives, forks, spoons
- 1 cup
- Big pot, small pot, pan
- Washing stuff
- Esky from Gumtree
After all the shopping the four person car had room for only two people and time spent searching for stuff among the mess was guaranteed to take a significant portion of any breaks we'd take.
And then we were off to our first destination - Bruny Island. Eat all the Oysters!
