And g'day from Perth, the capital of western Australia.

We arrived here two days ago and because of the festivities, all we've seen of Perth so far has been the inside of a few shops and Kings Park at night (so really we've not seen much of it, it was too dark).

But we had a great new year's eve. They're a fun bunch at our hostel, The Witch's Hat and our NYE was an evening of drunken revellery at our hostel and on the hill at Kings Park, overlooking the rest of the Perth skyline with about 30 European, Japanese and Australian peeps. A really random fun night of chat, distant fireworks, a loud rendition of Auld Lang Syne and "massage" conga.

Amazingly, we've been drinking much of New Year's Day too. The boxes of cheap plonk left out from yesterday were just too tempting. Tomorrow starts our sightseeing here, and then we'll move on. We've met a few people chartering cars, who we could travel with. North or south? Who knows...

  • Happy New Year to you both!

    So to top of a hangover on New Years Day, you got hammered again? The 2nd must have been a bad morning ;) Infact make that a day...!

    Glad you've safely arrived in the Oz. Do you plan to go to Sydney? If so, take a picture of the Opera House!

    All the best,

  • G'Day you mongrels. It's Bruce here from Perth, if you get the chance to pop in, come and see me. I'm in Dubba Dubba, 50 miles east of Perth.

    If you do get down look out for the billabong tree next to Yabbie Creek, mine's the first shack on the left.

    I'll keep a few tinnies cold for you and hope to see you both soon.

Jody and Amy have finished their 10 month adventure around the world, that began Nov 2, 2004, and ended Sep 2, 2005. They're back home in London now, doing normal things, like going to work and drinking tap water. You can see a map of what was their planned route, but we didn't quite follow it.
