we are just back from a four night trip to tasmania. i have wanted to visit tassie for as long as i can remember but have never been successful in getting the irishman down there. then it came to me .....
we both love leonard cohen ...well, i didn't until last year when the irishman dragged me kicking and screaming to a concert (his sister was visiting from ireland at the time and an hour before the concert i was pleading with her to take my ticket). i left the concert madly in love with the seventy-something year old leonard and don't know why a hadn't been lovin him for years! i now refer to my leonard as, you guessed it, my leonard. the most magical and spiritual and blissful concert I have been to in my life (and i've been to too many to remember).
anyway, this year he was playing in a massive arena as sydney had realised how fabulous he is, and we didn't want to experience the magic of my leonard in that environment, so i thought - lets see him in little ole tassie where there wont be a huge arena. genius, yes i know!
so that is how i got the irishman to tassie. here are some photos from the adventure.
we had a magnificent time. visited wineries and tasted far too many divine pinot noirs (is that possible?), experienced the divine mr cohen, walked through forests, drove around valleys and generally had a blissful time.
the best thing ... the irishman wants to go back!!! Yay to me!!
