"...oh, you creep up like the clouds and you set my soul at ease..."

Last weekend, I completed my Australian excursions for 2010. My goal for this year was to try and hop around the country and see as many spots as possible and I have now checked Perth off of the list.

If you think that Sydney is far away from the US, well...add on almost 5 more hours of flight time and you will get to Perth. It is the most isolated, capital city in the world. And, when you are there, you can feel the isolation. The people tend to flock to the comfort of air conditioned rooms because the heat is oppressive. It was well over 100 degrees before noon even hit.

The highlight of the trip was being able to see and swim in the Indian Ocean. I never even contemplated in life that I would be able to do this one day. I took a ferry out to Rottnest Island and grabbed my snorkel gear. I headed out to a secluded beach where I was completely by myself except for a huge pelican that was catching fish in the waves and I decided to test the waters.

The water was freezing but I told myself that I had to do it. So, off I went. I dipped into the icy, blue waters and literally just feet off of the shore were tons of fish. It was amazing. My body shivered from the cold water but I was bound and determined to snorkel.

Afterwards, I plopped down on the sand and took a long nap. In the middle of nowhere, just me and the sounds of the Ocean. It was a nice retreat.

My trip to Perth was pretty easy going. If I have learned one thing over the last two years of life, it is that planning things out can be your biggest mistake. Go with an idea of what you want and then just see where life takes you. I have always been so structured and I still am but sometimes, you have to just let it go and see what adventures are in store. With Perth, I did just that and I ended up having an amazing experience.

What's next? Well, in 2 weeks, I am off to "Home Sweet Home" America. I am ready to just lounge around and have people make decisions for me. Basically, I just want people to feed me. But, before I go home, I have a Christmas party for work and I am going to take trapeze classes for a day! Until the next adventure.
