G’day possums

Observant followers of Platypus Pandemonium will have noticed a lack of posts in recent days. We’ve been travelling through the wild heart of Tassie, where Internet access is harder to find than a black cat in coal bunker; today we’ve finally escaped to the idyllic west coast, where they do have Internet but it’s slower than a slug on vallium.

I haven’t spent my evenings idly reading a trashy novel or drinking cheap wine* but have instead committed pen to paper and written out in long-hand accounts of our various adventures to share with you at a later date.  I’ll see if I can manage to post any later this afternoon, before the Internet connection finally gives up the ghost altogether.

* actually, that’s not strictly true, there has been some idle drinking of wine (though to be fair it wasn’t particularly cheap), but only because to my delight I have discovered that sparkling Tasmanian Chardonay Pinot Noir lubricates the creative juices. Well, that’s my story anyway and I’m sticking to it.

"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!
