    April 24, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    We returned from our short road trip to the north and visited the city of Fremantle today. It is located at the coast and only around 25km away from downtown Perth. The city has a really nice flair and some interesting museums.

    One of the best things in Australia is that almost all museums are for free and even there are some free public busses connecting the downtown areas of Perth and Fremantle.

    Und schon sind wir wieder zurück von unserem kurzen Roadtrip in den Norden. Es war so zu sagen ein kurzer Test bevor es so richtig los geht. Jetzt sind wir aber zunächst nochmal in der Umgebung von Perth. Unser heutiges Ziel war Fremantle, eine Hafenstadt direkt am Meer und nur ca. 25km von Perth entfernt. Das Städtchen hat einen super entspannten Flair, riesige Strände und eine durchweg nette Innenstadt. Wir sind den ganzen Tag durch die Stadt gelaufen und haben uns ein paar Museen angesehen.

    Das Gute hier in Australien ist, dass die meisten Museen umsonst sind und die etwas größeren Städte wie Perth oder Fremantle haben gar kostenfreie Busse die die Sehenswürdigkeiten der Innenstädte abfahren. So können wir hier das Auto samt Zelt einfach stehen lassen.

    Wie fast jeden Abend gibt es dann nach so einem anstrengenden Tag abends ein leckeres BBQ!

    Penguin Island

    January 14, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Das Glasbodenboot brachte uns auf Penguin Island, doch vorher stoppte es bei Seal Island. Dort lagen am Strand eine ganze Menge Seelöwen die sich von der strengen Jagd erholten. Um das Boot herum schwammen einige Delfine, unter ihnen war auch ein junges. Penguin Island ist eine rund 840 Meter lange Insel und wird hauptsächlich von Vögeln besiedelt. Überall waren Nistplätze zu sehen, unter anderem auch von Pinguinen. Am Nachmittag fuhren wir weiter nach Fremantle, eine Stadt, die als Hafenstadt für Perth dient.Read more

    ▪️Habe mich total verfahren, bin den Freeway 5 mal rauf und runter gefahren - ich war zu nervös Henry heute zuverkaufen
    ▪️Denn mit dem Autoverkauf endet auch mein Australien Abenteuer :(
    ▪️Am Ende kommt ist doch alles anders als geplant: werde Henry am Montag nachdem ich auf Rottnest Island war für 3.500 AU$ verkaufen und am Mittwoch mit Henry und Georg nach Melbourne fahren - letzter Roadtrip und somit einmal Australien umrundet :D
    ▪️Den restlichen Tag habe ich in den süßen Vorort Fremantle verbracht

    Fremantle is calling

    December 29, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Auf nach Fremantle hieß es heute für uns, leider auch unsere letze Station bevor es wieder zurück ins kalte Deutschland geht. Nach 2 h fahrt kamen wir in Fremantle an. Da wir noch nicht Einchecken konnten auf unserem Holidaypark am Cooge Beach ging es für uns erstmal ab in die City. Fremantle eine lebhafte süße Hafenstadt in der einiges los war. Die Häuser in der Stadt sind noch im alten Kolonialstil erhalten was dem ganzen einen tollen Charme verleiht. Wir gingen ein wenig shoppen und schlenderten durch die Stadt. Für Hanna war es heute auch ihr Glückstag sie fand Ihre heiß begehrten schwarze Uggs ( Stiefel aus Lamm oder Schaffell) die hier deutlich günstiger waren als in Deutschland-> happy wife = happy life. Anschließend gingen wir in eine Pop Up Bar hier am Hafen Namens the Dock. Eine Bar die in einer alten Container Halle direkt am Wasser liegt und komplett mit Holz Paletten und Fässern gebaut wurde. Wir genossen hier ein Getränk bevor wir uns auf zum Holidaypark machten. Dort angekommen machten wir ein BBQ auf dem Campingplatz bevor wir an den Strand gingen um den Sonnenuntergang anzusehen.Read more

    Freemantle and Perth

    March 28, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Fremantle and Perth.

    A lovely day, of very warm temperatures, our pool roof open to the sunshine,and many out on deck,as we sailed up the coast, past the quite large Rotnest Island.
    We arrived into Freemantle late afternoon on the 27th, for an overnight stay. This was for us, a chance to see very special friends. Shona and Maui, who grew up with Sam on Stewart Is, [for those unfamiliar,] and later living near, our children at school together .Keeping in touch ,when time allowed.
    They are our “ Forever Friends”, with whom you pick up where you left off ,no matter how long.! They came a distance from Waneroo , and went for dinner in Freemantle, talked so long, animated.. not even seeing nobody else was left in the restaurant.. they were gracious though ,not making us feel we should leave…! Later after a little tour, we realised, on drop off, no photos..So hurriedly commandeered a passing chap to take some, so quite late at night ,they are not perfect, but a lovely record of a delightful time spent ,and so grateful for our connection ,lasting many years.

    Today we were off again to a dear soul, 95 in June, Elva,[ Mother of my friend of long ago] ,who has visited us in NZ ,several times ,with her late husband. Yvonne, my friend ,had surgery, last week , and lives a distance down the Coast, didn’t come today.
    Elva lives in a beautiful part of Perth, Mt Pleasant ,beside her other daughter Helen and Family ,on the same section she has lived all her married life ,but now two newer town houses are on the block .Leafy ,wide street ,beautiful plantings and homes around . Ideal for Elva living alone, to be near assistance if required .She is tiny now and frail, but a goer, if ever there was one. Our day all planned , Helen and she ,took us to lunch at a gorgeous place on the Swan River, huge gums ,with lovely bark, beaches ,and flocks of Cockatoos. The day was sparkling and the homes on the river, stunning. So much to catch up on , just so special to be together ,and share many memories. Sad to say goodbye though.
    Helen dropped us in Fremantle ,so an explore of a small part ,some essential supplies ,before we came back to the ship. Instructed to have some extra mosquito repellent, in wrist band form, we are told is best .All equipped.!
    We leave tonight for our 8 day journey ,across the Indian Ocean ,a long way to go, to Mauritius .
    We are pleased that the reason for our Sister Ships misadventure, has been explained, a quirk of fate really, but we hope extra supplies of the required engine lubricants, are firmly aboard.!
    A new Family member at Adtrea Lane in Heathcoate, a gorgeous Kitten ,Birman /Norwegian Forest, blend... How delicious...,we hope Christian's little dogs are Jose...!
    Love to hear all your snippets ,I will post along the way ,but not so often. Love from us, Faye and Sam

    Wedding Day

    January 9, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    The day dawned bright and sunny. We were up to fit in a full walk to Burns Beach, where we had our first Aussie flat whites. I went for a dip in the pool, a respectable 26 c.
    Then we loaded the car as per instructions and headed south on Marmion Ave through Scarborough to Freo, picking up 6 bags of ice along the way, and to Be apartment overlooking the boat marina.
    The wedding venue in Kidigo Artspace was but a short drive to drop off the fizz and water and ice. The building was formerly a Kerosene store and dates from 1884.
    We had time to suit up and stroll down ready for the off at 16.15, beginning with a welcome from a representative of the indigenous people who sang a song accompanied by tapping two boomerang together.
    The ceremony was beautiful and the bride looked gorgeous in a very sparkly dress. Amanda and a cousin, Justin read and uncle Crispy played Bach at the conclusion.
    Photos followed then reception in nearby Bathers Beach House. All very magical and delicious food and wine with loads of opportunities to catch up and make new acquaintances among the speeches and an amazingly colourful sunset.
    A perfect wedding day.

    Fremantle morning

    November 1, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    The apartment is actually a bit run down though I will say the bed was soft, warm and comfortable. Looking at the maps over breakfast in the Freo Bakery I wonder if we weren't perhaps meant to be staying in Arundel Street... .

    Back at the apartment I go onto Airbnb to check and, yes, we were confirmed for a nice looking place on Arundel Street. Not very pleased, I call Val. She explains that the lift is broken and as we were on the 6th floor so she's had to move everyone staying there and didn't we get the message? No, no message received. I say that this place is a bit tatty and she says it's similar to the original place and the same price. She might be able to offer us a townhouse but it's meant to be two nights minimum. Then she offers us a refund for the second night. We say we'll call her back. We don't really want to have to move, dragging everything back to the car - that'd be twice in twelve hours and three times in twenty four as we move again tomorrow. Not to mention the waste of our time. We agree we'll take the refund for the second night. I call her back and we deal with the refund. She then slips up and says these are the budget apartments. Yeah, I've already checked Airbnb and this one isn't on there. Ok, maybe the lift was broken but I'm not best pleased at being palmed off with this. Hey ho, at least it's better than the freezing tent in the Outback with a sleeping bag determined to spit me out!

    Saga sorted, we go off to explore Fremantle. We spend quite some time pootling round Fremantle Market. It's way smaller than the one in Melbourne yesterday with a mix of fresh food, cuisine to eat there and then, as well as an eclectic range of other market stalls. There's a definite hippy sort of vibe to the place.

    Time for a visit to Fremantle Prison built by the convicts to house themselves. We keep this visit short as we've done gaol time this week already!

    Down by the harbour we duck into the posh looking CharChar for lunch as it's starting to rain again. We try some rather good tempura battered oysters and go for their burger and beer meal deal.

    Fremantle, later

    November 1, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    It's very windy, intermittently rainy and not very warm most of the time. We pop into a couple of galleries - I especially like the underwater photography exhibition; it all means so much more when you've seen it yourself - visit the Roundhouse, which was the very first prison in Fremantle, admire all the original 1850s architecture along the High Street, briefly visit the other market - lots of antiquey stuff here - and wait too long for a bus.

    Then it's dinner at Gino's, a Fremantle institution, with Susan, who we haven't seen since we were over four years ago. We sit undercover outside. It's cool and breezy but ok. Several times it absolutely chucks it down rendering conversation briefly impossible. Susan goes for the chilli mussels, John has steak with mushroom sauce and chips, and I choose the handmade gnocchi with Gino's special blue cheese sauce. It's lovely but there's a lot.

    Later we're walking Susan back to the car park when we see the blue lights over the Esplanade. It's the light show highlighting rising water levels round Perth so we take a closer look. It's very simple : just some blue laser lights and smoke but it's very beautiful, very ethereal

    Maritime Museum and Perth

    November 2, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    After lunch we take a quick visit to the Maritime Museum. It's quite interesting but we both preferred the museum earlier which just seemed more focussed. Or maybe we're museumed out for the day.

    Then it's into the car to move to a place just down the road from Susan. This new place is quite basic but clean and functional. It's so much better than the last place.

    Susan comes round and we all head for the packed Wembley Hotel, two minutes walk away, where everyone is watching England v South Africa in the rugby final. Susan and I find a table round the back and start putting the world to rights whilst John watches the rugby. Unfortunately it's South Africa's game from the start, with the final score being 32 : 12.

    For dinner Susan takes us into Northbridge to her favourite Chinese, Ming's BBQ. Of course, this is nothing like an English Chinese but is full of clean flavours. We have a lovely clear chicken broth to start, followed by chicken, pork and duck which are all marinaded and served as chunks of meat with various dipping sauces. There's a crisp green veg dish simply flavoured with soy, not swimming in sauce like our's. Then lots of rice and Singapore noodles. It's delicious. And it hit the table unbelievably quickly. Today must be our day for exceptional food service.

    Before we head back, there is time for Susan to walk us round this buzzing part of Perth to experience a bit of the night life vibe and see a bit of the cultural centre. It's not that I feel like a country bumpkin at all but all the young people are dressed up, both for Saturday night and Halloween events, and I'm in the same stuff I was wearing in the Outback to keep warm... Best put the old lady to bed, methinks!!

    February 21, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 28 °C

    Up and a hit workout and 50 lengths of the pool.
    Drove down to Freemantle to start with the Prison tour. Very informative session on how convicts were used to build up the prison, the town and the nearby areas. 7 years for stealing a loaf of bread!

    Then briefly popped into the Freemantle markets before the little creatures brewery tour at 1pm. Had a fun tour and sampled about 10 of their beers. Heather felt rather tipsy so we went to a nearby restaurant called Char Char for Kangaroo. Got it discounted using our entertainment app. Winner winner Kangaroo dinner.
    Found an ice cream place and worked our way back home.
    Went round to Andrew and Emma's for a massive red snapper fish.
