Tasmanian Wanderings – To Cradle Mountain we go in the internet no go zone

Today we arrived at Cradle Mountain. The trip here was good, not so sure about our accommodation.

The places are okay, but for the money they charge you would expect more, like maybe the internet. Something like that.

So, I don’t know when I will be able to post again. Sorry about this, but it seems when you pay around $500 a night for a place you can expect crap. Can you tell how annoyed I am.

The places are a bit dated, and seriously, no tv in the rooms, no internet, what are you meant to do. I hate it.

So, I have been trying to get some photos from my phone to my laptop, but it isn’t working. Why is it that the more technological things get the more complicated they get. Why can’t I just connect my phone to my laptop and download the photos I want? You used to be able to do it.

I swear things are getting so overly complicated these days.

We did go for one walk which was really nice and we are looking forward to doing more tomorrow.

Like I said, I don’t know when I will be posting again, it could be a couple of days. Sorry about the whinge, but I’m feeling a bit p’d off.

I hope you are all doing well.

  1. On the bright side, it can be positive to find oneself without intetnet ( but not when you’re paying so much!) And there is no hurry send out the posts! One can always catch up. I have been travelling for about three weeks now. With or without Internet, I am three weeks behind……oh, finally got a post out today. However, as always looking forward to hearing about, and the seeing the results of your adventures.

    1. I agree, I think if I knew beforehand then I wouldn’t have been so shocked and could prepare. But as you said when you are paying that much you do expect the internet. Thank you Geoff, thankfully I was able to find the internet in some places around there.

  2. So sorry that you don’t have internet access or TV!! How annoying is that when you are paying that much money for accommodations. I hope that doesn’t discourage you from having fun! Take care. Lovely photos.

    1. Thankfully we were only there for two days. I know what you mean, you would think the cost would cover that. We did have fun, but we would find somewhere elsewhere to stay. Thank you.

  3. Loved your images Leanne, especially the red fungi. $500 a night! That’s $330 USD. Wow, and no real internet. I bet the scenery makes up for it.

    1. Thank you Anne. The red fungi was so cool and stood out in the dark rainforest. I know I think it was way overpriced. You couldn’t see anything from the cabins, the place was gorgeous, but we would have had more at other places there for less money.

    1. I have to admit no tv didn’t bother me, it was just strange, but the internet, I didn’t expect that. My husband reckons they are just too lazy to organise it. A nerd’s paradise sounds good.

  4. For $500 bucks you sure should have TV and internet service, Leanne! I’d be ticked too. The aboriginal people sound very interesting.

    1. That’s what we think John, it was so annoying. Spoke to people who stayed in other places and they had tv’s and the internet. Dave, my husband, said it is laziness that they don’t have the internet. Yeah, the indigeous population is always good to acknowledge.
