With summer just around the corner, it was time to get the motorbike out!
I have just spent four days riding around our great state and saw places that I visited only once as a kid, like Stanley, and some I had forgotten all about.
The weather was kind on the first part of the ride and the spectacular scenery only cemented my commitment to get active this summer.
We visited and spoke with some interesting, welcoming people in many of the towns we passed through and experienced great local hospitality from many Tasmanian businesses.
The Imperial Hotel, Branxholm, near Derby is one of the great establishments we visited, and I can highly recommend the food, accommodation and the staff.

I found the whole trip around the state such a wonderful experience, especially after the last gloomy six months, so let's get out Tassie and enjoy the remarkable place we live in.
