Midwinter Adventures in Tasmania

Life is full of unexpected delights, and my journey south to Tasmania, was just that. When my friend, professional chef Sarah Glover invited me down to surf and adventure with her I was excited and grateful for the opportunity. This time last year I was chasing the sun to islands in the South Pacific, surfing in my bikini, a decidedly different kind of winter life. Tasmania is as far south as one can go in Australia, and winters here require layers of merino wool, thick wetsuits, and covered shoes, things one never needs in the tropics.  Rugged up in my Patagonia down jacket, thermals and leather boots, I left any thoughts of bikini surfs at home and flew south with an open heart.

What transpired on the road in Tasmania opened me up to the joys of a real winter. Meeting new people, surfing fun waves and eating delicious food to my hearts content I absolutely loved every moment of not being too hot for a wetsuit.  My friends at Homecamp are featuring my story with photos from Luisa Brimble, Stuart Gibson, Hannah Mccowatt and myself in a full blog post I wrote, please do visit their site to read all about my sensational food, snow and surf filled adventure!
