Summer Holiday Round-Up

Now I’m back in England, after 5 weeks of revisiting old places, visiting new places and going to a new country. Of course there are things to look forward to back home: Doctor Who, a bunch of awesome films, and the return of normality.

There’s something about this holiday that I have really enjoyed. So, without further ado, here are the 10 activities I enjoyed most this holiday, in no particular order – Continue reading “Summer Holiday Round-Up”

Australia Part 3- Fremantle Prison’s “Doing Time Tour”, and a trip to Mandurah

On Wednesday, we went to the Fremantle Prison in Western Australia.

The prison was used to contain many different types of prisoners, and the building itself was built by convicts sent over from England, as Fremantle was a convict camp. The prison was built between 1851 and 1859 and it was made from limestone.

Australia part 2- Fremantle and Rottnest Island

So here I am in Fremantle, the port city of Western Australia. It’s classed as being part of Perth but also as a separate city.

We live in a terraced house with no Wi-fi. The lack of Wi-fi means my blog posts have to be uploaded in the library (and probably means an Ant-Man review will only be in my end of year movie sum up). Still, there has been a lot to do including quokkas and more quokkas.

Australia Part 1: Close encounters of the KANGAROO kind – in Perth!

Here I am in Australia, or more precisely Perth, the most isolated big city in the world. For a city with this distinction, it seems pretty alive and it’s hard to believe that the city is surrounded by miles of water of Indian Ocean and miles of desert on all sides.

The flight from Singapore itself was eventful, as my multi-media console was severed for some strange reason. Thankfully I had a bunch of comics from Singapore to keep me entertained. I was given 75 dollars compensation to spend at the airline shop. My parents will probably buy something expensive with it to bring back

Perth itself is a very laid back city. The one downside is that it is in the middle of construction works, so there is noise everywhere, and we could hear them from our hotel room, and get woken up by the digging sound every morning (from about 7:00 clock). The city centre was mostly unaffected though, which is good as the shopping here is amazing!
