Sorry for the Time-zone Change! I’ve been down under doing a lot of press touring and visiting the abundant eco paradise that is Australia. With Our Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel show hitting this new continent, we have been very busy queuing up all our digital SEEtizens, to be able to find the right Zoom times! However, this entry is more leisure than business.
As an adventure traveller, I had to enjoy the lands before the culture and business side FIRST. So let’s take a peak at my favorite trip to Perth & Rottnest island. Now right away, you must be wondering how did the island get its name? William de Vlamingh, who in 1696 was the next recorded European visitor to Rottnest Island, gave the Island its name after the abundance of quokkas he saw, mistaking them for rats.
Did you know that more than thirteen ships have been wrecked within the waters of Rottnest Island! Thank goodness, our Ferry got us back safely. I suppose I am the 1 millionth European visitor to this cute Quokka-run sand bar, but I treated my experience like I too, was the first. Taking in the salty air breeze, of this Eco-protected reserve.
I got to meet some of these friendly wallaby-like marsupials with my niece and friends. Perfect downtime after a few cities of interviews and jet-lag.. never too tired for a bike ride, we rented some wheels to scale the breathtaking postcard-perfect shorelines and sand dunes.
