Where I stayed
Maybe we where subconsiously a bit homesick but after we dropped our bags we went straight to the british pub down the road for a nice cold beer
The next morning we set off north with the greyhound and stopped in Kalbarri which was 7hours from Perth. Kalbarri is a nice little town and we found the YHA hostel very nice and spacious enough to cook our own meals and chill around. On the bus we met two German girls (Kalli and Lisa) with which we decided to rent a car for the day and go out in the bush.. We also meet a bunch of dudes from Perth that where travelling towards coral bay so spent the evening playing good old drinking games and having a laugh. Next morning however the girls had us up and running by 8AM which was a bit painful but we are travellers and we can handle it!!!! ha!!! We visited the National Park and took the short trekking routes to Natures window and the Z zone as the scarchinly hot temperatures and the evil and most annoying flies in the world prevented us from attemping any major hike but we did see some amazing stone formations and landscapes (a bit of a pity though that we didnt make it in high season..anyway..)
We also saw our first kangaroos..!!! woooo that was exciting... we took a walk to the local golf course and there they where just chillin''..... of course they are all over the place so dont really have to go out looking for them but was nice to see them dine in the moonlight,.... hihi romantic.
On our last day we went down the street from the hostel where they feed the pelicans every morning and had our first encounter with these birds. As a kid I (sophia) got right in front of the line to feed them and of course did the most pathetic move every..dropped the slippery fish on someones feet ...so we had a bit of excitment there.. :-) always happy to contribute to the entertainment.
Tomorrow we are off to Shark Bay which will be another 4 hours north but so far our impressions of WA people are that they are very friendly and TALKATIVE so think we are going to definitly enjoy it here!
till next time folks
