Le Chic En Rose

Diaries of an independent traveller

Back on line after last week’s hiatus though my computer is still being a bit slower than I’d like it to be!  It needed 2 new RAMS, which the computer tech guy explained was to help it multi task! However since the photos I want to use this week are still on my iPad, I’m …

Alas after being temperamental for the past few weeks my home computer decided to have a total nervous breakdown yesterday collapsing into repeated blue screens with “the kiss of death” then it packed up altogether. Hence I’m only able to use my iPad for the next few days whilst it is at the computer repair …

I’ve been asked a few times by fellow bloggers recently about life “down under” in Perth, Western Australia. In between continuing my travel journals, I’d like to write a bit more about my family’s adopted home. I’ve reworked a guest post that I originally wrote for Nicole at Mein Leben In Graz to give you …

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!

Mein Leben in Graz

Hello everyone, my name is Rosemary and I blog about my travel experiences as “Le 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.

Many people associate Perth with its beautiful coastline, pristine beaches and the clear blue waters of the Indian Ocean. Visitors often head to Kings Park on the edge of the city centre or down the Swan River to the port of Fremantle, both of which are well worth visiting. However just 45 minutes drive from …
