Playing Catch-ups! – Part 2

In my continuing effort to catch you up on our hectic lives …

We have finally been back on the motorcycle! This took a little more effort than usual as we had to get her out of winter storage first, then we took her to the beach.

Those spots you see in the background of that shot is the air full of kite surfers. Would you like to know more?

Playing Catch-ups!

I don’t mean to brag (warning; bragging ahead) but we have been busy! I have so many things I want to tell you which I haven’t had the time or energy to get around to! So instead of in depth posts about everything, I’m going to do one giant catch up post. And lucky you, you’re reading it right now!

First I shall finish off telling you how amazing Perth was! We went out to the desert (in the pouring, flooding, rain) and visited the Pinnacles! Would you like to know more?

Rottnest and the Quokkas

When I were a wee lass… just a few short years ago… I had a friend named Weapon, who told me stories of the Quokkas on Rottnest Island. I wasn’t going to be in his home town, and not go and see the quokkas. Poor Himself didn’t have a chance.

Other than wanting to go, this side excursion was mostly unplanned. So it was off to the concierge asking him to wield his magic for us! (I love a good concierge! They can do anything!) Would you like to know more?

Perth

Himself and I always wanted to go to Perth. It has been on our wishlist for many years, but we never quite managed to make it while still living in the country. So when I received a message from a friend that she was getting married, and it was in Perth, there was no way I wasn’t going to be there!

Why not travel around the world to see something you’ve never seen before?! We decided on balance that spending a week in Perth would be best. Achieve as much off our “want” list as possible. Would you like to know more?

A town no longer my own

It is strange going back to Sydney now. It was once a huge part of me… But that Sydney has moved on without me, and it is no longer the city that I knew or was a part of. When I walk around now, I am a tourist. But I try my best to not be *that* kind of tourist!

I look back over the photos I’ve taken on this trip, and I realise that the pictures I take in Sydney are the equivalent of the photos I took five years ago when I got to Amsterdam. Would you like to know more?
