Smalltall are moving…

…to Tasmania, Australia!

After living together for 3.5 years in The Netherlands, Smalltall are packing up and heading for an adventure on the other side of the world in Tasmania!

Small lived out her teens and early 20s in Tasmania so for her it’s more like going home than stepping into the unknown but for Tall it’s a different story! In the beginning of 2018 we spent a couple of months on holiday in Tasmania escaping the Dutch winter. After that trip, the potential of Tasmania was looking more and more appealing so we decided to undergo the looong process of asking for a partner visa for Tall.

Fast forward through nights of forms, statements, organising and a whole lot of getting on with our lives in Europe; and 1 year later we had our visa (within record time)! But, from then on, we also had an extremely tight deadline to get ourselves to Australia. The visa authorities had given us just 4.5 months to pack up our entire lives and move across the world. It’s been hectic finishing the renovations on our house amongst everything else but, in just 4 short weeks we will head off with just a suitcase each to see what the other side of the world has in stall for us. We arrive the day before Tall’s 30th birthday - what a way to bring in your 30’s!

With such a short amount of time before we leave you’d think we’d be madly organising and packing. Well it turns out Small is better at procrastinating than packing! ENTER…this post:

In order to stay motivated ;), Small went through her vast collection of beautiful Tasmania scenery shots and has decided they were too good not to share! I mean we really are moving to a kind of paradise! Here are some of our most treasured photographs from the great island below down under.

These 4 photos were taken during Tall’s first trip to Australia in March 2016, right before Small moved to The Netherlands. They are taken from every corner of Tasmania proving how diverse the landscape is while illustrating some reoccurring colours of the island. The second one has been Small’s desktop image ever since - that says enough!

This photo is an absolute favourite from our last trip in 2018 to Tasmania. After 2 long days walking in the heat there’s not much that can describe the feeling of an evening as beautiful as this!

Some extras we couldn’t help but add in :D.

It’s fair to say we’re excited to begin the next chapter of this adventure together. More than anything Tasmania offers a huge untouched playground for us to explore while spending some time with our Australian family and friends. I’m sure you can see why we’re looking forward to it.

Bring it on!

Thanks for taking this trip down memory lane as we look forward to our future lives on the other side of the world. Hopefully it will even inspire a few of you to visit this beautiful island we will soon call home.

I would have liked to go to Tasmania on my journey just gone to Australia but time and budget wouldn't allow it. Now it looks like it will need to be visited with the variety of landscape on display from your blog!

I hope the move over is successful and enjoy every moment! Congratulations on the steemitworldmap feature 🙂

Thanks @nickyhavey, I really recommend the visit! So many people miss out little Tassie but it really is so different to the rest of Australia. I hope you make it one day and thanks for the well wishes 😊

It will be on the growing list of places to visit when I get back in to travelling again and my budget increases 🙂 it does look very different though.

That’s the only downside of Tasmania - it’s so far away from everything! Happy future travels 😁

Haha Australia and New Zealand really are different worlds! Happy future travels to you too!
