On the 23rd February, my mother and I hiked our way through the wilderness that rests on Maria Island, located off the
eastern coast of Tasmania.
This was to be a fabulous experience full of invigorating walks, load bearing packs and treasured moments, lapping up
the world as God created it to be. We travelled by bus from Hobart to Triabunna, boarded a boat from the pier and anchored
just short of the shore off Maria’s coast. We placed our 10kg packs on our backs and waded through the crystal waters
to land upon a majestic but deserted beach. We trudged along the beach and crossed an isthmus to reach another beach
which led to our first camp. For the next four days we were to live without power, flushing toilets, televisions, computers
or even radios. Heaven on a stick!
