Noticed the temperature difference straight away as I got off the plane in Perth, nice and warm at 11pm, delighted!! Booked into the Billabong Backpackers which was full of Irish and Germans.
Did some walking around Kingspark and sunbathing at the swan river the first couple of days.
Ran into a crazy guy that was just out of the mines, an “exploration miner' who never shut up for a good three hours. He had us all convinced to go out bush for a few months working in the mines! Had some good nights at the hostel meeting other travellers.
Poor Louise got the flu so we decided to buy some whiskey and spent an evening making hot whiskeys and Irish coffees to try and cure her I picked up some shifts waiting tables in a restaurant so that kept me busy in the evenings for a while, I learnt how to make good coffee and espressos came in handy when I was after having a late night. One night some customers gave me their details in Sydney and said they I could stay there whenever I get there!!
Found an apartment in the suburbs a few miles from the city and it has TV, broadband, bbq etc so its pretty cool, Went on some day trips on my days off to Rottnest Island, Cottesloe & Scarborough beaches & Fremantle.
I was working with some Irish and other backpackers from Korea & Europe so had good time on nights out after work at the karaoke bar
Got offered some contract work so packed in the waitressing, had a week to spare so took a cheap flight to Singapore with Kahina a girl I was waitressing with and one of her mates.
