Australia – Perth & Surrounds Aug 2015 (10 Days 9 Nights) Part 3 of 4

Day 7 to 8. Perth & Surrounds - Albany. A quiet port city in Australia with gorgeous beaches around it. After Albany, we will continue our road trip back to Perth city. Alas, my holiday is ending soon. Time Flies when you are having fun! ~Day 7~ We had light breakfast and start our journey to explore The Blow Holes... Are we in luck to see the outburst of the water and air?

Quick Review: SADDD!!! We were not in luck! You need the right conditions to see the gush of water and air burst out of the blow holes. But it is still an awesome place for trekking. The view is still awesome! The clear blue sea with lovely fluffy clouds spreading their wings on the blue blue sky!

We continue our drive. I drive along this stretch of road that I thought the trees are well-lined up along this road that make this road so shady and pretty. Perth_650_204

Quick Review: We ordered pineapple rice and tom yum soup for take away. The soup wasn't as spicy as I would like. I think the flavours have been tweaked to suit the local preferences.
