334--Australia: Show me your map of Tassie!
@ CherieSpotting     Dec 30 2005 - 17:11 PST
cherie writes: If an Aussie says "Show me your map of Tassie", he doesn't want directions. According to Aussie blokes, the island of Tasmania (Tassie) resembles a female body part.

While in Tasmania, we met a few new friends (Marjo and Eric) and reunited with old friends--Hannah, Diane and Hilda. We biked down Mt. Wellington, weaved (literally) our way through wineries, climbed through caverns, splashed along new shores, spied on penguins, fed wombats and drove to the end of the road. Here are a few images from Tasmania!
