Study trip to Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens

I visited Hobart during spring for the Grow Your Future annual education event. The event was held at the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens. I traveled with Tiger Airways Australia on an economy class ticket. Their services were impeccable. The ground personnel and cabin crew were polite, helpful and very concerned. When I reached Hobart, I was awed by the well maintained historic buildings. The city was so peaceful and welcoming. At the botanical garden, there was so much to learn and explore. The garden was a golden beauty with historic trees dating back to the nineteenth century and extensive plant collections. I would love to go back again.

My visit to Hobart for the MONA FOMA Summer festival

I had a splendid time in January when I visited Hobart for the MONA FOMA summer festival. I traveled to Hobart with Qantaslink airline on economy class ticket. The crew was friendly and constantly kept on checking on us. Snacks and drinks were served. The festival was held at the Museum of Old and New Art. The festival was filled with vibrant music, masterpieces of art and delicious food. I also visited Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery which houses a state collection of exceptional art and interactive exhibitions. I bought interesting souvenirs at the Salamanca market. The market was full of handmade pieces of woodwork, glassware, ceramics, and fabric. I highly recommend Hobart as a fantastic place to explore.
