The observant blog followers amongst you may have noticed a question mark in the title of our last blog : "Home in Hobart?". Indeed, we were trying, not very sucessfully, to find work in Hobart, and home was a motel room in the suburbs. Last week, we were told that the motel was booked up on Saturday and we had to vacate for the night. We decided to spend the week-end in Launceston, visiting a couple of beautiful old villages along the way. We bough the Launceston newspaper and spotted an ad for cleaners in a Tourist Park in Bicheno, on the East Coast. We met the managers on the Sunday, got the gig, and straigt away settled in one of the on-site vans in the park where we started work the next day. We clean 4/5 mornings a week, which gives us plenty of time to enjoy our suroundings (Freycinet Peninsular is just down the road) and the amazingly changing coastal weather.
