Took a short trip to Perth with Zhiyi, Ashley, Alvin, Cheryl and Charlotte over the Christmas and New Years period (25 – 31 Dec 2008). It turned out to be a very enjoyable trip, except for the small fact that this being the holidays and peak travel season meant that a lot of places like restaurants were either closed or fully booked on certain days.
Nonetheless, Perth and its surrounding towns still offered a lot of great scenery and coupled with fine weather (20 to 30 degrees C and low humidity) made walking and driving around very pleasant. Getting around and talking to people also didn’t seem as intimidating as compared to the busier and more cosmopolitan city of Sydney.
We spent the next few days hanging around the city area, Fremantle and driving out to Margaret River and Pemberton before flying back on New Year’s Eve.
More pictures to come in following posts! Sifting through 17GB of holiday photos to upload isn’t exactly the most relaxing thing to do after a tiring holiday. 🙂
