Kings Park


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.

dress: primark
cardigan: h+m
belt: thrifted
bag: ebay
tights: primark
shoes: vans

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.
Thanks Babe!

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!

  1. Looks like you are having a great time! The wildlife in Aus is so different to everywhere else I have been. I used to love the parrots when I first was there, but then they were so annoying with their sqawking in the morning! xx

  2. I love the darth vader bag! hahaha. Glad to see you're enjoying yourself. :)

  3. I love hearing about your Australian adventures. I always find your observations interesting and learn a lot like I didn't know before about Kangaroo Paw. Your dress is super gorgeous.

  4. It looks like a different world there! So green, colourful, and sunny. I've only ever seen birds like that in cages before, it would be neat to see them wild and free!

    And you and your bf look adorable together!

  5. Der Park sieht wunderschön aus - und dann noch dieser tolle Ausblick auf die Stadt! Sieht so aus, als hättet ihr einen schönen Tag gehabt. :-)

  6. Your Primark dress is beautiful. I love the lace. You and Jarryd do have nice outfit and hair colour coordination. All the photos of your outfit, the flora and fauna and the scenic views from the tree top walk at King's Park are fabulous.

  7. Ach, das sind mal wieder so schöne Bilder! Und ich LIEBE dein Kleid! :)

    Liebste Grüße,

  8. Ooooh, I love this dress you're wearing. Also, good luck with your interview! Hope it went well :)
    What a beautiful park - great snapshots!

  9. This looks like a really pretty park - I am always amazed by the birds and wildlife when I visit Australia and I'm only from New Zealand! I love your cute outfit - especially the tights. I hope you share more pictures next time you visit the park:)


Thank you so much for your comments, I really appreciate every single one! <3
