Tasmania Trip 2019 Day 3: Seagulls & Supermarket

More walking around Hobart. And I do love seagulls. We never get these in Singapore. And the grass here is so lovely. In Singapore this would be called carpet grass and they have to be weeded carefully and it’s expensive.

Salted Caramel Cinnamon Rolls at Dal Komm Cafe Centrepoint

I usually am not fond of salted caramel but these rolls were actually good and not overly sweet. A quiet and spacious place in town which is rare. Good comfy seats but the only downer is they won’t give you … Continue reading
