January 25 Hobart, Tasmania

Early in the morning of the 25th we arrived at Hobart in Tasmania. The ship remained at port till 5 pm before lifting anchor and sailing for Melbourne. We had enough time for a drive around Hobart to get a feel for the city and to visit a maritime museum, a botanical garden and an old mansion.

A bedroom in the mansion we visited showing a chamber pot beside the bed. I'm sure when the mansion was in use that chamber pot was as far away from the bed as the room will allow LOL.

Do it! It is best to do your traveling when you are young even if your wallet is lean and your time limited.

A peanut butter and jelly sandwich inside a rain-soaked tent in the boondock tastes better than a premium steak in the artifically controlled climate of an upscale restaurant in a megacity.
