Perth and Fremantle

5 July 2015

I feel like I've been all over the world since the last time I posted, but really I've just been to Perth, Kathmandu, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore...all in three week's time.

Let's start with Perth...

Chris and I celebrated our 9th(!) wedding anniversary in June, but he was being sent to Perth for work and was going to be gone for our we decided the best thing was for me to fly out there and join him instead of being apart for an anniversary.

So I did! :)

Perth is a realy, really nice city. I was especially struck by the interesting architecture:

Both old and new:

They even had a light show:

And a beautiful sunset over the river:

They also have wide open spaces, something Chris enjoyed, as usual...

 Chris had to work most of the time we were there together, but we had a lot of lunches together and one lovely Saturday. We spent the first part of the day in Perth City, where we really enjoyed these fountains (they kept moving! it was like water walls!)

We also visited McDonalds, not for food, but for ice cream...I'm not sure if this has hit the states yet, but Macca's (as it's commonly called here) is piloting computer-based ordering and made-to-order burgers. Weird.

The rest of our day was spent in Fremantle, a lovely seaside town just a short train ride away from Perth.

Highlights included:
Baked Potato bar! (Think Subway with potatoes)
Escape Hunt! We cracked the case with just 1 second to spare! (This was a lot like our ClueQuest game in London last much fun!)
Late lunch and a brewery tour at the Little Creatures Brewery
And a cider named after our dog! ;)
Chris even found a lovely park to nap in!
Fremantle also has some fun park areas with free table tennis
and a giant chess set. We had a fun time playing a friendly match against a couple locals!
 Of course, all good things must come to an end. On Sunday I hoped a plane to Kathmandu and Chris extended his stay in Perth for a few more working days...

 And year 10 of marriage has begun! :)



  1. Congratulations on your anniversary! Good way to spend it. My daughter lives in Perth and used to work in Fremantle.

    1. Thanks Jane! We really had a great time! Perth was a neat city, and we just couldn't get enough of Fremantle. This country is amazing!
