2021 marked the first this millennium that I spent an entire calendar year in WA. 2022 may yet prove the same. When it comes to travel, though, I have not been scraping the bottom of the barrel. Rather, the barrel has proved to be deep.
From September 2003 to June 2019, I spent a total of four nights at what Perth people call ‘down south’. In that time, I spent more nights in Sydney, Far North Queensland, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide, Canberra, Buenos Aires, Patagonia, an Antarctic cruise ship, New York City, Virginia Beach, Broome, Exmouth, Darwin, London, Edinburgh, Gran Canaria, Munich, Bali … well, seemingly anywhere really. So I am discovering and re-discovering beautiful places … like Meelup Beach.
