Not another road trip to Fujairah, or another slew of visitors…we’re moving! Again! Barr and I are heading to Perth, Western Australia in 10 days!
Yup, off to the West Coast (of Australia, that is). And only for a handful of months before returning to Dubai…and ultimately back to the states. The one thing I have learned from being the wife of a consultant (not even from being a “trailing spouse” – wife/husband/significant other/friend/brother/sister/parent/pet of a consultant deserves its own designation, in my opinion) is that they say, “Are you ready to go? Ready to hop on a plane?”, you say “Yes” and do not hesitate. Now the aforementioned situation is typically true to just the consultant, but over our past 2 moves, I’ve learned that it can be applicable to the significant other as well. No complaints, of course – we’re so excited! 🙂
Barr and I have been to Australia one other time…to Perth also actually! Random I know. We’re random, get over it.
We went for Christmas with my family a few years ago (it was also Barr’s first time meeting my mom and sister – we threw him in the deep end right away 😉 ). On that particular trip, we didnt spend too much time in Perth itself, but rather in Fremantle and then Margaret River for some family wine tasting, obviously. That being said, we cant wait to explore the city more (and buy some wine easily….vs the hoops we jump through to get it here in Dubai)!
So yes – off on another international adventure! We’re so looking forward to a new city (a new country, a new continent!), seeing friends from North Carolina in Perth, and escaping the brutal Dubai summer (clearly we prefer to escape extreme temperatures, and are continually chasing temperate weather at any cost).
Do any of yall have any tips about Perth? Favorite spots? I’m all ears 🙂 Moving down the road to Western Australia. Until next time…
