Weekend Wanderings

I seem to always have a million places on my list to visit in Hobart so I decided to check out a couple last weekend. As well as two new places I started at an old favourite, Salamanca Market.

I'm pretty sure most of you would have been to Salamanca Market at least once and so have I.  Usually like most Hobart locals I avoid the market because there is no parking and everything is overpriced but last Saturday I found myself with a spare hour in town and decided to spend in at Salamanca and I was glad I did.

Vita: Nature + Culture & Giveaway!

As I mentioned in my Hobart Street Eats post I was pretty enthused about trying Vita: Nature + Culture so, we headed there on Sunday and I'm a convert.

Vita makes me feel happy inside AND out. 
I'm not a total saint when it comes to being 'green' but I like to recycle and buy locally where possible and it's really refreshing to see a company that adopts the same mantras in food and business practices.

The space is fresh, clean and Scandinavian.

Hobart Street Eats

I've recently been to a few Hobart eateries that I've really enjoyed, not restaurants as such but much less formal without compromising on taste. 

I like to drop by on the way home from work or before a movie or social gathering and feel like I've found the perfect balance between going out for dinner and still having my evening left to do what I please.

Starting at The Standard.

Nestled down Hudsons Lane off Liverpool Street are the hottest street burgers in town.

Jam & Bread and Conningham Beach

The last few days of last week in Hobart were soggy to say the least, I just love the glorious sunny winter days we get but they seemed a thing of the past. Finally on Sunday there was a glimpse of sunshine a welcome change and something I was determined to take full advantage of. 

We started as most of my happy days start, with eggs and coffee.
