Yah, yah, I'm still around. We leave just after mid-night. It's a red-eye flight that I'm not particularly thrilled about but it's peak season and seats are limited.
I'm glad we're heading to Western Australia instead of Europe where the heavy snowfall is causing travel chaos everywhere.
From Perth Airport, we'll drive straight to Margaret River, the famous wine region of western Australia. The weather's nice and warm, so we'll be spending plenty of time outdoors.
The reason why we're heading that way is because of the prize I won. Well, the generous owners of Yelverton Brook Eco Spa are excited to meet us. I'm looking forward to a relaxing stay and encounters with the kangaroos, possums, bandicoots, woylies and birds in the backyard.
Then we're heading to Scarborough Beach for the rest of the holiday. I think it's nice to stay away from the city for a change.
The highlight of the trip would be dinner with my reader Chin. Originally from Singapore, they have been living in Australia for some years now. I can't wait to meet her and her teen daughter who is a very talented writer (I know because I read her blog).
I promise to return with lots of scenic photos and stories. See ya.
