Since there are not many travel guides for Western Australia, I am going to post a recap of my trip hoping it might be helpful to some of you (and I can re-live my trip too!) My friend and I did spent over a month planning this trip and researching for the best deal along the way... I have to say, it was definitely a big success! Planning is power!
Day 0 - 1 - Hong Kong / Perth / Busselton / Margaret River
My friend and I took a direct flight from Hong Kong departing 11:30pm arriving at 7:30am to Perth. (Yeah to no time difference!)
|final call... seriously!?!?|
|reminds me of Dallas, Texas|
|on time arrival :)|
|our ride for the week|
|driving on the wrong side of the road|
|Love the color of the water|
|Would have been a nice walk in a warmer day|
After that, we stopped at Samovar for lunch. Just like we were warned before, most shops close early, including restaurants. We were lucky enough to got to the restaurant right before they took their last order. I had the quiche and it was so yummy! I can taste every ingredient and that's the time I decided this trip is going to be awesome (at least food-wise)
|Quiche - delicious!|
|Creamy potato soup|
We were pretty much spent after lunch. So instead of going to Dunsborough Bakery and Ngilgi Cave, we drove down to Margaret River and checked in at the youth hostel (YHA).
|we even got a patio!|
After a nap, we went for dinner. Again, most places have already closed (it was only like 9pm). Finally we found a wine bar that is still offering light snacks. Turns out it was a place my friend had wanted to visit. Again, food was delicious, especially the bacon! Yum!!
That pretty much wraps day 1... stay tuned for more :)
