Travel to Perth and our first day in Australia!!

Next morning we were up packed and checked out and then headed into the city to get lunch at a place called Lau Pa Sat. Similar to the food market we visited on the first day but a little more upmarket. As it is right in the CBD and it was lunch time, the place was packed but we eventually managed to choose something and grab a table.

Then we jumped back on the metro to go get our bags from the hotel, treated ourselves to a taxi from the station and back (because it was another scorcher and we didn’t fancy carrying the big bags for half a mile), and back on the metro to head for the airport. After a bit of queuing, and some free Haribo, we were on the plane and heading for Australia! Strange to think after such a whistle stop couple of months taking in so many different countries that our next one would be home for 4 and a half months!

It was dark by the time we landed and after getting through customs etc, we grabbed a taxi and were off to the hostel before finally getting to bed sometime after midnight!

The next day we explored the surrounding area, made easy by the CAT bus which is a local bus route that travels round the centre and which is free!

After getting an idea of the area, we walked home through one of the local parks, and that evening planned our short stay in Perth.
