Fairy Shop in Salamanca

Down in Salamanca, the hip and the trendy part of Hobart, Tasmania, you will find lots of pubs and nice restaurants, not to mention really expensive accommodations that cost AUD2000 a week.


It's a place for poshness and artsy fartsy stuff.

Abstract arts stranded among the buildings in small alley ways that meant shits to normal human like us with normal human eyes.

They all look like some sort of ghosts to me.

Down the street you will find a very popular fairy shop which I've heard from so many people around me before I even set foot on Tasmania.

Now "Faerie" is old French for modern English Fairy. It's all the same meaning tiny little imaginary or mythical creatures that possess powers.

Upon entering the shop, you will be transported into the fairy realm with pretty pink decorations all around you.

Once inside, you'll find the shop to be the cutest little four wall unit ever.

I managed to capture a series of little fairies before the land (shop) owner told me me to put my camera away. :(

On the way out, I couldn't resist one last photo of the shop.

Right outside, I saw this 2 dollar rack of clothes in front of a second hand shop.

No wonder it's 2 dollars.

Heck, even at that price, I wouldn't even buy this piece!

We walked around Salamanca square.

Saw some kids playing near a giant chess.

Read some fun facts in front of a shop that were selling the Giant Microbes.

Read a riddle that still had me scratching my head till this day.


Any takes on the answer? Anyone?

Leaving the square, we walked towards the port,


and just right in front of the fruit market,

I spotted the most amazing view since my arrival in Tassie.

salamanca rainbow

I've never seen a rainbow in such up close distance before. And the colors so vibrant!

It almost made me wanna run to the end of the rainbow, which at the point seemed pretty near, and see if there's a pot of gold underneath it.
