Update from Perth, Australia

I am about to start walking south from Kalamunda on the outskirts of Perth. I was going to leave tomorow, but this has me potentially landing in a couple of busy towns on a Friday or Saturday. I try and avoid trail towns at the weekends because grocery stores can keep funny hours and accommodation can be tight, especially with school holidays and nice weather lurking. After 6 or 7 nights straight camping, I am really going to need a bed and a shower!

Therefore, I might delay the start another day. I am still at the YHA in Perth and feel very at home here! There are lots of long term residents of all ages who I have gotten to know and will be a little sad to leave them all. I have travelled a lot over the last year, so it’s nice to slow down and be based somewhere for a few weeks.

The weather has been great here and much milder than when I arrived this time last year. I am hoping winter is behind us now. Tomorrow looks a little wet but it’s sunshine all the way after that.
