Australia 2013 Freelander 2 2.0T SE Auto Fuji White
Tasmania holiday

Back from a month in Tasmania. The car drove really nicely on Tasmania's pretty ordinary roads. Also a lot of them are very narrow, windy & bumpy, but the car really drove nicely, really nicely! A good solid test to see how well the car performs. I couldn't be happier. Even more so that I have added acoustic insulation. It simply makes the quality of driving so much nicer. Still going to add a bit more but it is really impressive so far, even more so on the concrete roads south of NSW. http://www.freel2.com/forum/topic33026.html The larger tyres on the car makes it feel a lot better. The acoustic insulation has cut back the noise from the all terrain tyres to a level better than road tyres. The car with road tyres & acoustic insulation would be very impressive.

Spirit of Tasmania. In 1992 we were on a catamaran, same as between England & France a few years ago.

Everything helicoptered in these days for the glamping! But I walked the 32km return trip from the road in 9 hours.

Cape Raoul, too many people at the end. One person tripped a metre from the cliff edge!

Russel Falls, in 1992 we were the only ones there, today it took 45 minutes to get a photo, & it apparently was a quiet day with numbers at about a third.
