Now I've sat a number of taxis in my travels, from the most expensive Tokyo's to the dirt cheap Bangkok's.
But I realized that Tasmania's taxis are comparable to that of Tokyo's. THEY ARE F*$#KING EXPENSIVE.
I secretly recorded a video while sitting in a taxi in Hobart, it was to be a 5 mins ride from pub back home at night (too cold to walk). Just watch it and judge for yourself, then let me know if you think I wasn't hallucinating when the meter was increasing every passing 2.5 seconds!!
And the taxi wasn't even speeding!
A ride to the airport from Hobart (where I stay, god knows if I remember the place) took 15-20 mins and it cost more than 50 OZ Dollars!!
Next time I'm walking even if it meant breaking all my limbs carrying my luggage.
