So it was that time of the year again and I took a quick two week trip over to the other side of Australia in Perth. This trip I indulged in a lot of food and did a massive amount of walking well for me anyway. A trip away means a post full of pictures so I may reminise on my trip and share my favourite parts of Perth.
This was my first time enjoying the sights and wonder of Kings Park, a short bus ride out of the city centre you reach this beautiful botanical gardens that extend for miles, it has a combination of history and beauty with its Anzac memorials such as the constantly burning flame pictured in the top left, and views of the entire city. It was a long walk around approximately 4km round trip which left me aching the next day, it was surprisingly busy and we went at around 3.30-4pm in the afternoon. It was worth seeing the gorgeous plants and incredible views as well as tributes to Australia’s history.
Our next stop was the newly named Elizabeth Quay, which was once the esplanade, it has been getting renovations for a little while now and though it looked really cool I could not manage to walk a step further. The picture on the left I was inspired to take as I had red somewhere that travel photography takes forever to get right as there are always people in the way or something along those lines and yet I managed in between road crossings to capture a rather quiet city street before boarding the train. The bridges on the left are a new edition to the area that now I think about it remind me of the big M… hmm nice Segway right because you know what is next the FOOD!!
So upon arrival I had to go with the classic Nando’s it was introduced to me in Perth and is now a staple every time I go, it just tastes so much better where I originally fell in love with it, if you are like myself and do not do well with the spicy go the BBQ flavour it is love at first bite. This time I agreed to try a type of food I am very well known for never giving a chance other than the sweet dessert pictured in the top (churros are my food crush) MEXICAN, so on this trip I actually gave two different restaurants a try Mad Mex and Zambrero’s. We were in the city and all the Japanese restaurants were full which was a major bummer and Mad Mex have their 1kg burrito challenge in which macho man himself had to try of coarse so viola i ended up eating Mexican and of coarse because i love all that is edible I actually found myself enjoying the baby sized burrito that i got with my pineapple soda!! Zambrero’s was actually my idea to try because i decided one taste of Mexican wasn’t enough and again my mouth and stomach fell in love with the food I would recommend trying one of the two at least once.
The last food that I actually managed to capture myself eating was serve yourself Chinese this is a winner for me no matter where I am, I love picking my own food and having a few choices at once keeps the variety. We did make it to one Japanese restaurant in the city that served an incredible pork ramen which we loved and will defiantly be trying again it was a diamond in the rough kind of store and not all that expensive either, only I have no clue what it was called and of coarse it was the one place I did not capture myself eating up a storm!!
I stay in Rockingham each time I visit Perth and this time I actually got down the beach and took some wicked photos, it was freezing on this day and I didn’t take a jumper of coarse.
This trip to WA was one of my favourites as I managed to spend time seeing more of the city and the surrounding areas enjoying the food and taking some amazing photos around a developing and yet untouched kind of state. I can not wait until the next time I am over that way and the other areas I shall explore.
I learnt to use snap chat on this trip to see me being average its @kahliaanelise
I always upload my photography first to my Instagram
I also post random quotes and links on my twitter which is also @kahliaanelise
Remember keep creating yourselves xx
so I spent all day yesterday on planes and several forms of transport.
it wasn’t too bad.
This yummy smoothie made it better
its called the Extreme Delight
I want to try re create it.
6.00 am flight to Sydney
Sydney as we are coming in.
I was only in Sydney airport for 10 minutes.
LANDED in perth.
4.5 hours later
I watched Blended, devil wears prada & three episodes of modern family.
I then caught a bus & train for another hour
I got home and watched foxtel and slept,
I now have a massive tooth ache and am hoping to get it out tomorrow,
I will let you know how that goes on social media
On our last full day in Sydney we decided to take the boat ride
we got the tickets with the bus tour.
Sydney Opera House
This was the first thing I just HAD to take a picture of from the water,
it just looked so magnificent.
Sydney Harbor Bridge
This also looked incredible from the water and we actually went under it
and could see the people who had just climbed it.
An old church
I was in love with the old building flittered around Sydney.
The City Skyline.
it looked really cool from where we were.
I was devastated I didn’t have enough time to go, next time though
I did get too see it from the water which was really cool, we actually saw it all lit up at night too
but there were way too many ships to get a good picture.
Luna Park ❤
This is going under the Harbour Bridge.
also you can’t see it but there was a baby seal in the water.
people thought this was a prison but it actually wasn’t used for that
I didn’t get time to go onto it and have a proper look though I really wanted to.
Sydney was incredible, these are the last of the photos and the last post for my trip,
I could not have picked a better place to go on short notice I had the best time with some really great people
I indulged myself in my love of history as well, now it is back to reality.
We spent Friday on a hop on hop off tour bus around the city of Sydney
learning a heap of fun facts and seeing some beautiful sights.
Kev was our tour guide for the day.
St Andrews Cathedral
I saw this Cathedral from the plane and was dying to see it,
I am not religious but I am a sucker for these gorgeous buildings.
Monumental statues around the city.
Up close to the Opera House.
The Famous Coke Sign.
We found a gorgeous little Cafe tucked away in the same alley we had the
Amazing Italian food, this was the most amazing breakfast I have ever eaten.
The tour around the city was so totally amazing, we actually had the best time learning,
we laughed and looked in wonder and learnt things they never taught me in school.
I would seriously recommend doing one.
Peace Out xx
We arrived in Sydney at around 8am so we basically had the whole day to explore.
but we walked 50ks instead and then caught up with friends.
Sydney city from the plane
This way a gorgeous little alley off Kings Cross
It has restaurants all down it.
We found this gorgeous Italian place, it was seriously adorable,
if you get a chance I would highly recommend visiting it. It’s located in Kings Cross.
Amazing and I mean AMAZING pizza that we ate, I could have eaten the whole menu.
we were staying right above the cross it was amazing, also the glowing sign in the last picture
I was told has been featured in fat pizza and houseos.
we explored mainly the cross for the first day and caught up with some friends.
This was the gorgeous View I woke up to to start my next day of exploring.
Peace Out xx
I am back with a heap of photos and fun things to tell you all about my recent travels, beginning with the fact that I had an amazing break and Sydney was absolutely beautiful.
For those of my readers who didn’t know I went to Sydney for IMATS which I was so excited for I really thought it would be amazing and I have to say it was kind of a disappointment it was a room filled with maybe twelve stalls and girls lined up everywhere around the room, you had to fight your way into lines and wait ages to see even the products so to me it just wasn’t my scene. I did pick some things up from the lime crime booth though which was exciting and then the highlight was meeting Karissa (satnightsalrite) outside the venue and getting to have a chat with her and get a photo, honestly nicest girl so down to earth.
I got three LimeCrime nail polishes & one lipstick
Once in a Blue Mousse
In the Social Eyes bag Karissa was giving away
so generous of her and her team ❤
Candy Yum Yum
These are all the products I picked up whilst I was in Sydney and at Imats
I was a little disappointed with it, however now that I am home I
am ready to do some exciting things
xo Peace out xo
