Via Think Tasmania on Instagram, we promised details of lunch at Salamanca Inn. So here goes! Cheesecake for Lunch at Salamanca Inn! Life is short, so we’re going to skip straight to the most important thing. Cheesecake!

We thought that was pretty special, but then we heard the next offering was a “Rich Chocolate Easter-Egg Cheesecake”. OMG.

We must be the opposite of the norm. We don’t want to buy coffee at 7:00am....Read More
We posted the following question on our Facebook page recently in our 6:00pm (forum o’clock) timeslot. We are considering moving to Tasmania permanently with three kids.

You can see the resulting comments via the Think Tasmania Facebook page from many of our good sports, who make for a great group of followers. Thank you as always.
