Tonight I arrived in Launceston after eight days of cycling in Tasmania. My muddy boots are the cleanest thing I own. I am bearded and burnt, aching from climbs I never expected. At the top of them all was Jacob’s Ladder. It felt like the end of the world, or maybe God’s workshop, all strewn with boulders and clouds. I didn’t belong there but I don’t care. These places are beautiful . . .

Wombat! I love these guys . . .

The top of Legges Tor – Tasmania’s second highest point
Latrobe – the platypus capital of the world. I saw exactly none.
