Because of my more or less regular stays in Sydney we decided this year to spend our annual vacation in Australia. The plan was that M. would first come to Sydney and then we would fly to Western Australia, rent a car there and then buy some equipment from a friend and finally go somewhere. Until the evening before the trip we really didn’t know where we were going. I had already arrived in Sydney two days before with Air China and M. arrived on Sunday with Emirates. My flight was really cheap and quite empty. At M. the flight was full and expensive. All in all we completed two times Sydney and in between Western Australia with 6100 km in the car. The route there went from Perth to Coogee, Rottnest, then north, Shark Bay, Coral Bay, Karijini National Park and via Newman back to Meekatharra and Kalgoorlie. While Sydney is almost always very relaxed by the climate, Western Australia was riddled with adversities. But that’s what it’s all about.
I had booked an apartment for us in the Meriton Suites Zetland in Sydney, actually the same apartment I always had. On the 22nd floor with a view to the Blue Mountains.„2017 Western Australia – Day 1 – Sydney“ weiterlesen
