Phew, what a busy week! I've been writing applications like crazy and it has payed off in an invitation to an interview tomorrow. Not bad so far, we'll see what else will happen...
I've procrastinated it but today I would finally like to show you the picture-heavy post about my first visit to Perth's Kings Park, one of the largest inner city parks in the world.
Of course we were not able to walk through the whole park as it is unbelievable 4 square kilometres big. However we were able to roam around a bit and enjoy the flora and fauna.
As a European this was all completely new to me because I had never seen any of the plants there before (only on TV maybe). We just don't have these flowers, bushes and trees in Germany. Also I'm not a very well-traveled person so I didn't even know any of these from visiting other countries.
Jarryd was able to name the different plants and birds for me which was very interesting.
I learned that the cute birdie in the picture above for example is a Galah cockatoo. Doesn't it look nice? Such a lovely shade of red/pink.
This little guy was hanging out on a tree branch with his buddy when we walked past. They were both quite tame and let us approach them to take pictures. As I'm a bit awkward about birds, Jarryd was so kind to take the pics for me.
Another name I was able to keep in mind is Kangaroo Paw, that's the plant on the upper right in the picture above, the one with the funny looking arms. If you take a close look you can see that the tips of the arms look like a kangaroo's paw. Cool huh?!
Haha look at how our outfits match (and our hair colours anyway)! I didn't even notice that, I just saw it a second ago! Both redheads and both wearing black/white/red clothes, awesome!
Well, as you can see we rocked the couple look and had a fun time at Kings Park. Can't wait to go back and see the rest of it, especially the amazing tree top walk! So looking forward to it!
Happy Thursday loves!
