    5 Things to do in Tasmania that are not outdoor adventure-things Although you may not believe it, the are are quite a few things to do in Tasmania that have nothing to do with outdoor adventure. After all, thousands of tourists come here each year and you can’t expect them all to be as active as we are, right? While in Tasmania, we mostly did pretty active things because, after all that’s what we enjoy doing most.

    A couple of years ago, Martijn said ‘I want to go biking in Tasmania one day’. A couple of years later, also known as present time, his dream came true and we went biking in Tasmania.

I cycle quite a bit back and forth between home and the office I work at but that’s usually just around 45 minutes a day. The biggest challenge in that ride is crossing…
