Bridestowe Lavender Estate

Lavender is definitely one of my favourite scents and it is attributable to the bushes that my mum had planted in our garden at our childhood home. After my semi-failed visit to a lavender farm in Victoria, I did some research and discovered that the blooms happen between December to early January which perfectly coincided with my trip to Tasmania. Visiting a lavender field has been on my list of places I have wanted to visit and I was reminded of this from Cherie's visit back in August 2015.

Glengarry Bush Maze

During my research, I discovered that there was a bush maze in Glengarry. It is a bit of a novelty and, as I had never participated in one, I thought it would be good to tick it off my Things I've Never Done list. I had planned to take it a little slow that day as my quads were still so sore.

Quick stop to see the opium poppy fields. The farms in Tasmania produce around 50% of the world's (licit) supply!

Waterfalls in Tasmania

The day after Cradle Mountain was painful. The hike to the summit was honestly the hardest hike that I had ever done and it was reflected in how sore my muscles (especially my quads) were. I woke up early from my campground (where I was the only person there...) and drove to one of the tallest waterfalls in Tasmania, Montzeuma Falls. There is a bit of conflicting information about whether or not it is the tallest at a height of 104m. Unlike the previous day, it was a very grey morning and drizzled for most of the drive there. I hadn't done enough research and didn't realise that the walk to and from the carpark would entail a 3 hour return walk. Yikes. Despite how sore I was I ended up walking to the falls, encouraged by the sign that marked the walk as easy. It definitely was easy.

A Day in My Life (Video)

I have decided that 2017 is the year where I will branch out and learn new things. Back in my Livejournal heydays, I spent hours upon hours learning Adobe Photoshop and HTML / CSS coding. For the past few years, I've been quite stagnant and haven't picked up any new hobbies. I love photography, however the post processing is quite ... boring and I usually edit my photos as I am watching a movie / tv show. I have previously done A Day in My Life posts however I thought it would be different to have it in video format! It was a little difficult to film things as I spent 8 hours a day at work + 2 hours of commute. Nonetheless, my first video and plenty of room for improvement!
