The Wonderful World of Perth

Guide to Perth - featured image

What many people won’t know, both of us were born in Sydney, Australia; but since living in Perth for a significant number of years, it’s where we call ‘home’. But since we haven’t lived in Perth for over two years (and home is where the heart is), we thought we’d share our love for one of the world’s most isolated cities, Perth especially since it’s where we are tying the knot❤

Despite it’s ‘negative’ award, Lonely Planet listed WA in the Top 10 best value destinations to visit in 2016 (with Fremantle coming in at #7 for best city) and the New York Times described Perth as a hipster heaven.

When we travel, I am definitely WA’s best advocate. Spreading the love and awesomeness of WA. We’ll do a WA post soon but for now, check out our list of OG things to do and see. (OG means original gangster, in case you were wondering)

A guide to travelling with your parents
A guide to travelling with your parents

As an adult, you’ve developed your own interests, routines and experiences. You’ve survived being an adulty adult. Sure, some of this enhanced by your upbringing but you are your own person. If you’ve got parents like ours, they don’t travel as much (or make return trips to familiar destinations). I guess, somebody’s gotta stay home and check your mail!

Have you ever returned to your childhood home after living on your own? Or stayed with your parents, as an adult, for an extended time? If so, have you realised they’ve resumed ‘parent mode’ and ask you where you are going and whom with? (I can guarantee you both the parents and the adult children have complaints about this!) Look no further, this guide is definitely for you!
