Great news

They’re letting us in!  This morning we sat huddled over the PC and applied for visas.  We still haven’t quite got over the trauma of applying a couple of years ago for visas to visit India, so we feared the worst.  But all credit to the Aussies, their system works and within the hour our entry permits had been emailed to us.

Tasmania here we come.

Author: Platypus Man

"Platypus" is a red herring: I'm English, although my blogging career began in my record of a 2016 road trip to Tasmania. Other blogs followed covering road trips in Newfoundland (2017), the Yellowstone area of the USA (2018) and New Zealand (2019). My current project is "Now I'm 64" , a weekly blog covering UK travel and wildlife, along with bits of history, social commentary and moans about the injustice of aging. I can guarantee a few laughs, and also the occasional rant. Some of it's even quite well written!
