This year 2013 I took a holiday in Tasmania staying with Family I found on this site the Docking family went to Tasmania some 150 years ago as Free Settlers and did good. So their descendants met up this year after 150 years of not knowing about each other finally met. It was a long flight but well worth it, Dean and his family were so friendly and he showed me a lot of the Island from his home in Hobart we visited many places. Excellent three weeks Thanks G R for reuniting a long lost family together :-) The Flight was a 24 hour Marathon but in a very nice A380 Air Bus, Left Heathrow at 2235 and so began the journey of a life time. Dubai was a six hour flight not so bad but then an eighteen hour slog to Melbourne and on to Hobart and was I glad to get there. My Cousin Dean met me at the airport in a downpour! at last I was in his house and could relax, I had intended to have a few hours to catch up on sleep but didn't, we had so much to talk about. That night his brother cane with his wife and we went out to a restaurant in Hobart , a lovely time ,the only down was that the Aussies don't know what real ale is !! Following day I woke at 1530 ,needed kip time. on the Thursday Dean took me to see the local area we drove along the coast for about 50 klms to see a boats place (I'm a sailing man) and on way back he said we can go up the mountain! A road goes all the way to the top of Mt Wellington, I had visions of climbing !!
