The market looked less bustling compared to the last time I was there in September 2015 before we could even fathom covid. There was just one busker compared to the dozens I saw 7 years ago. Didn’t see Levi himself … Continue reading

Perth Trip Day 4: Tony Romas Dinner

I wasn’t very hungry and service was really bad. One of two rude experiences during the whole trip. But there was a really nice waitress too. Usually it’s just one person among the mostly really nice patient folk. Maybe they … Continue reading

Perth Trip Day 3: Jojo’s Pizza Dinner Delivery at the B&B

We ordered delivery to the hotel. The lovely owner helped. Satisfyingly cheesy pizza. But a bit disappointed at the soggy fries and garlic bread. Super generous portions though. Nice cosy sofa nook outside our rooms to dine and that was … Continue reading

Perth Trip Day 3: Elephant Rocks and Greens Pool

Felt a bit spiritual here as I had a strong scent of holy ash as we walked towards the elephant rocks (and I’m not even religious). I am spiritual though and I do believe in other dimensions and that science … Continue reading
