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.

T-Team Adventures–Flinders Ranges

In Search of Bunyip Chasm

[This time, some of the T-Team venture into the Gammon Ranges, Northern Flinders Ranges, South Australia; an amazing unspoilt part of the world…

Heartfelt thanks to Mohamad Al Karbi for giving me the opportunity to share the beauty of the Gammon Ranges.]

Over the Easter break in 1986, Dad took my boyfriend at the time (Mr. K) and me to the Gammon Ranges. Dad had gone there the previous year and was keen to show us some of the scenic secrets these ranges held.

T-Team @ Home — Barossa Valley

[Travellers to Australia often overlook Adelaide, South Australia as the poor cousin to the eastern states. Situated in a distant corner of the globe, the city and surrounds have the reputation of too hot, too dry and too awkward to visit.

Welcome to my home city and state.

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

[More nostalgia, this time when the K-Team from Switzerland visited my home town, Adelaide, and I, as the T-Team’s sole representative, helped show our visitors around the beautiful places so close to my home.

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

T-Team @ Home, Glenelg, South Australia

[Feeling nostalgic, this time I diverge from the T-Team’s adventures in the Central Australia and share the place the T-Team calls home—Glenelg.

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

My Old Stamping Ground

I grew up in Somerton Park which is about a ten-minute bike-ride from Glenelg. Even today, though I live in the Adelaide foothills, I go to Glenelg to shop, have coffee at the Broadway Cafe with Mum, and many times I drive through Glenelg on my way up north to Salisbury, or to the Barossa.
