West Is Best: Highlights of Western Australia

Our month in Western Australia had come to an end, it was time to pack up those rucksacks and bid farewell to Eilidh, Baxter and Misty the cat. We were both sad to leave but we had to head east. We absolutely loved our time in the west. Certainly Western Australia is under sold and […]

Left Behind

So we had left the tour. (luckily we had around 8 months of getting to used to our own company to not let that affect us). Task 1 was to secure lodgings for the next night. The day before Tom mentioned that we should stay in Pot Shots, another establishment down the road. We called […]
