Hobart was a lovely place to run, great water and hill views, nice trails too. Downside though was lots of hills, and that usual slight confusion of not knowing exactly where to run in a strange city.

Running while travelling is one of life’s great joys – the best sport ever and a great sightseeing opportunity.

We went for a lovely run on a Friday morning taking in the Derwent River, the Queens Domain and the Botanic Gardens. Approximate track (and the way I will go next time) is below.

Waterfront trail. Lots of birdlife on the river, and I spotted a very nice little falcon who came worryingly close.
