T-Team Adventures with K-Team the Younger (K-T-Y) — Tasmania

K-T-Y Tassie Adventures
Wineglass Bay, Freycinet Peninsula

[In 2009, it was my turn to be the Team Leader of K-Team, the Younger (K-T-Y), who were teenagers; one, of whom was a certain 15-year-old son who would’ve preferred to be playing computer games rather than travelling around Tasmania. This time the K-T-Y team venture to Coles Bay on the Freycinet Peninsula which is on the East Coast of Tasmania.

Many thanks to Mohamad Al Karbi who has given the opportunity to share my family’s travelling adventures in Australia.]

We need an Aussie “Brat Camp”, I thought as we trudged up the steep path. The best beach in the world, but did Son 2 care?

I turned and yelled, ‘Come on, son!’

K-Team Adventures–Gordon River, Tasmania

Cruising on the Gordon River

[Early Spring, here in Australia and a good time to visit Tasmania. Ah, memories of travels with my husband (Mr. K), his brother (P1), and cousin from Switzerland (P2), to Tasmania; a brilliant and beautiful destination to virtually travel.

Many thanks to Mohamad Al Karbi for giving me the opportunity to share the T-Team’s adventures in South Australia.]

An early start, just what the K-Team love. We were to board the Wilderness Cruise Boat by 8.45am. Not as early as the last time I took the cruise. Then, in 2011, I journeyed with my mother (Mrs T), for whatever reason, the ship departed much earlier than 8.45am. Fearing we’d miss the boat, Mum and I rose at the crack of dawn and ate our breakfast at a hotel opposite the wharf while watching the sun rise on the calm waters of Macquarie Harbour; an oil painting in hues of gold and pink with ducks on the jetty. Mum’s breakfast of Eggs Benedict was less than perfect; uncooked, runny and the “whites” not white. She’s never had Eggs Benedict again. I guess there had to be some compensation for the ideal weather we had that August day in 2011.

Trekking With the T-K Couple

Mambray Creek
Southern Flinders Stop-over or Stay

[Last year, the T-K Couple camped in the Southern Flinders at Mambray Creek; just a few hours by car from Adelaide and one of the beautiful sites often overlooked as travellers journey north.

Many thanks to Mohamad Al Karbi for giving me the opportunity to share the T-Team’s adventures in South Australia.]

On this overcast spring day, we journeyed along Port Wakefield Road; our destination Mambray Creek in the Southern Flinders Ranges which is about a three-hour drive from Adelaide. Market gardens, car yards, paddocks and the occasional hotel flitted left and right of us, and we reminisced our ventures into the Flinders Ranges.

T-Team Series — Mt. Sonder

The Waves of Mount Sonder

G’day, Lee-Anne Marie here from Australia. First of all, heartfelt thanks to Mohamad Al Karbi who has offered the opportunity to post the T-Team adventure series for all to enjoy travel in Australia.

In this episode, the T-Team admire the wonder of Mt Sonder in the MacDonnell Ranges; scenery that inspired famous indigenous artists such as Albert Namatjira, and also artists like me. The challenge, to rise early enough to capture the sunrise on Mt. Sonder.
