Mar 28, 2017 - March 28, 2017 – Perth, Western Australia, Australia

March 28, 2017 – Perth, Western Australia, Australia We had an early breakfast and caught the 8:15 a.m. train into Perth. We wanted to go to Kings Park which is Perth’s botanical garden. With the help of a very nice train station attendant we bought our tickets for Perth. The train filled up with kids who were on their way to Shenton College which is a prep school for grades 7-12. They were very nice young people who either quietly studied or talked with their friends on their way to school. When we arrived in Perth about 40 minutes later,...

Oz and the Big Lap

Mar 1, 2017 - The train is not my friend - Sunday, Feb. 25

We were told to be at the station by 7:30am. One couple was told 6:30am and security let them into the station. By 8:00am they were set up for tea,coffee, and pastries. My stomach was still rocking and rolling and we even considered staying in Perth and leaving the following Sunday but here we were ,a jug of hand wipes boarding the train. Our cabins were not across from each other, Dick's was further down the hall. They claimed the manifest said it was so, even though our ticket said it wasn't. To weak to fight we moved into our 9 by 3...

Over to Downunder

Feb 28, 2017 - Perth looks like San Dieago- Saturday Feb. 24

The boat docked we held it together long enough to gather our luggage and climb in a cab. Listen to a running commentary about the virtues of Perth. All I wanted was to be put down like a sick animal but playing the game of life am a survivor, sure my mom was praying for us. Plus I never wanted to have to tell my brothers " I GAVE UP". It was 8 am we checked out luggage, could not check in till one. The concierge once again located the nearest chemist open on Saturday and the trek began of a few blocks. 15 city blocks later I arrived at the...

Nov 9, 2016 - Perthic!

Another big blessing in that we could cabbage onto Scott's work trip to Perth, which is terrific in many ways. Like some good deals during our CG days, sometimes family can take up space with you just for the reasonable cost of airline tickets. Food being half the cost of SIngapore, especially Angmo staples. Like meat. I am trying not to lose my mind over it. But we are freezing some and bringing it back in our checked bags. SImple things like a burger by SAK become a thing of wonder and marvel. The salad one can just buy loose in the store...

Perthic!

Oct 16, 2016 - Perth

First job this morning was to wash sheets, towels, etc so that everything will be fresh and clean when we hit the road again tomorrow. Once the washing was out on the line, we drove into Perth to look at Kings Park. It really is quite beautiful and the views over the Swan River and Perth city are spectacular. We walked mostly through the botantic gardens which mainly promote WA flora within the different regions. It was really good to be able to wander through and say- ‘we saw that’ and then be able to put a name to the plant. Lots of the...
