A Hong Kong blog that does a lot more than blog
I just arrived back from an incredible week in Margaret River, Australia.
It’s a small town 3 hours south of Perth. It really is a gorgeous place and if you haven’t been, I strongly recommend it!
Breathtaking beaches, incredible caves and beautiful forests. Throw in some of the best wineries and breweries that I’ve ever been to and how can’t it be great?!
However my favourite part of the holiday was just chilling at our cottage, teaching my daughter card games, kangaroo watching and barbecuing.
I’ve missed having a BBQ so much! Beer in one hand turning meat with the other. It’s the easiest thing in the world, yet you get so much praise for it afterwards!
Australians are a cool bunch. I love the invented English greetings that you’re given at the most random of moments throughout the day.
In the supermarket, I had what must have been an 80 year old guy say to me, “How you gettin on, mate?”
I gave him the customary, “Not bad, mate!”
Many times throughout our trip I got the question, “Where you from, The States?”
Now those of you who have read my blog, Don’t Apologize to Me, know that this isn’t my favourite question.
But I just went with it and told them I’m from Canada, which was followed by that almost guaranteed, “Oh I’m so sorry!!”
Have you been to Australia? Could you live there?
