Posted in - Budget Travel Australia & Hiking & Walking & Perth, Australia & Wildlife & Wildflowers on October 7th 2016 0 Comments Banksia

Posted in - Cycle Friendly Cafes & Cycle Perth & Healthy life & Microadventure Perth & Travelling Me on July 15th 2016 2 Comments Jacobs-Ladder

The best part of Perth’s winter for a cyclist, aside from the abundance of perfect sunny days is more importantly the drop in wind conditions. A window of opportunity for an enjoyable ride.

Posted in - Food and Drink Perth on June 4th 2016 0 Comments Veal-tongue

South American street food sounded like a superb way to begin the boy’s birthday weekend.  Add a parilla BBQ and we could possibly be set for a feast of many at Asado.

On a Thursday night the streets in Claremont appear to be empty and we conclude it’s going to be quiet one as we short cut walk through …

I’m not sure if it’s because we are out and about cycling more these days, however, I’m noticing a decent bicycle culture in Perth – both road and off-road.
