Trip to Remarkable Tasmania

#TassieOnMyMind – Tasmania is known as the land of unspoiled natural environment, an island state located at the south of Australian continent. It is indeed a place of beautiful landscapes, lots of farms, superb food and wine but what really made Tas exceptional is it’s welcoming and helping people with tranquil island lifestyle. This trip was extra special and I am humbled to be reunited with my dad’s family after a long time.
