Nicole from Mein Leben In Graz (https://meinlebeningraz.wordpress.com) is a student living in Graz, Austria. She has had the great idea of finding out more about her visitors and followers by asking some of them to write guest posts for her “Around The World Page”. She asked me if I’d like to write one about Perth and it has just been published. Here it is – hope you enjoy reading a bit more about my adoptive home city of Perth!

Perth, Western Australia.

Mein Leben in Graz

Hello everyone, my name is Rosemary and I blog about my travel experiences as β€œLe Chic En Rose”. I originally come from Yorkshire in the north of England but moved to Perth, Western Australia with my husband and small daughter nearly 25 years ago! We’ve actually lived in Perth twice as after 4 years we moved across Australia to Melbourne where we spent the next 7 years. However we moved back to Perth again in 2001 and have called Perth home ever since. We have 2 adult daughters (1 living in London, the other here in Perth) and 2 granddaughters. Today I’d like to tell you a bit about our adopted Perth home and give you some insights into life here.

    I wanted to know more about Perth as well πŸ™‚ And now I got to πŸ™‚ The guest article was very good and informative, also with some great photos! Now I know what is worth to see if I ever get to visit your city.


    1. Thanks Hanne am glad you found the article interesting and informative πŸ™‚ There’s so much more I could have written so I tried to give an overview and the photos hopefully help to give an impression! I’m sure you’d love Perth if you ever come here! Have a great week πŸ™‚


  2. It was a very nice overview, very well done ! πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Gin for your kind comments am glad you enjoyed reading it πŸ™‚ There was so much more I could have said but didn’t want the article to be so long it was unreadable. Hopefully it gives a good impression of Perth πŸ™‚


      1. I’ve read somewhere that long articles have less chance to be read, because people only give you 1 minute of their time πŸ˜€ Not sure if it’s really true πŸ˜‰

        1. Yes I’ve read something like that too Gin – people are so busy they won’t bother to read a long article. Sometimes a shorter post is better! I don’t know about that – if I’m interested I’ll read right through to the the end – perhaps mixing it up is the way to go.


          1. Anyway, people that are only there to like your post hoping for a visit, won’t read it even if it’s 200 words πŸ˜€ So I don’t really care about the length. I write until the inspiration says “ok, let’s do something else now” πŸ˜‰

            1. I agree Gin you’re quite just write length whatever feels best for you! After all it’s your blog! The length of my posts will depend to some extent on how much time I’ve had that week – talking of which I need to get back to this week’s post now! πŸ™‚
