Sorry for the delay in not updating everyone but the last three months have flown by and we felt now was the perfect time to do it as you'll find out why in a moment!!
When we first arrived in Perth we had pre-booked a hostel which was near the city centre (Billabong), We stayed here for around a week before finding a shared house where we settled down and found ourselves a job. Gemma was working for BankWest recruiting staff, painting her nails in an aircond office while i was slogging it out in 40 degress heat building water featues and brick walls!!
We've found Perth to be really quite so at weekends we'd venture off to places south of the city like Rottness Island, home of the Quokka (cross between a kangaroo and a RAT) and Margreat River - Gemma's favourite place so far which is the home of wine tasting.
Last Tuesday we decided to make a move North as the weather in Perth was getting cold and us POMMIES hate the cold!!
1st stop was GINGIN, Home of Shaggy for all of you that know him. This is a town with 1 pub which opens for about 3 hours a day and very little else. We moved on swiftly the next mornin to a place called the Kalbarri we stopped here for the night so we could get up early the next day to visit the national park which was amazing.
Our next destination was Monkey Mia, on our first night here we sat on the beach with a bottle or two of wine to watch the sunset and we had 3 wild dolphins swiming around us in the harbour another unforgetable night.
As you'll recall in my first paragrah i said that this was the perfect time to update you all, well the reason why is we're currently the middle of nowhere stuck on a petrol station with a car thats good for nothing! yes its broke down and there's nothing we can do untill Monday but we're in no rush!
Take care everyone and we'll try not to leave it too long next time, if we can get out of this place!!
Love & miss you all
Ad & Gem xx
