this is a brief blog about what we have done in our first week here in Perth!
we have been to a harbourside shopping mall, and spent the afternoon lazing in the sun eating subway and ice cream!
we are living at chris's uncles house in a place called caversham, which is about 20 mins on the train from the city, and about half hour to the beach. his other uncles house is half hour drive north. so we have spent a bit of time at both houses. we have been to 'Whiteman Park', which is a free park with BBQ's, paddling pools, tram rides, shops etc, which was nice to go and chill out in with both the families. there is also a wildlife park within whiteman park, with all ozzie animals in, check out the pics of the kangaroo's with joeys in their pouches!! we had a bumpy camel ride too which was fun!
we have been sunbathing a bit on the beach, but burnt ourselves a bit!! oops!
as the distances are quite big between places, we have bought a car (pics to follow). it's a big 4-litre red ford falcon, bigger than anything you lot have in the UK haha!!
we plan to spend the next 3 or so weeks doing just the same, chillin and enjoying the sunshine, and then plan to spend our (well earnt) bonus (fingers crossed we get some lol) on a mini trip to new zealand, and hopefully taking in some other parts of Oz, like the gold coast/sydney/melbourne for a week. then it's looking for jobs time!! we'll keep you posted on whether we become checkout opperators or koala keepers!!!!!
neighbours starts again here on monday, so as we are 3 months ahead of the UK we can give sneak peaks at whats to come!!!
please keep adding to the message board with whats happning in the UK, we would like to hear from you all.
that's all for now
Gem & Chris xx
