As I’m writing this, I’m still finding it hard to believe that this is my final week in Perth. I can still remember the day V and I arrived in this state capital of Western Australia, wide-eyed with excitement, a bit anxious perhaps, but eager to make the most of this new chapter in our lives. Here we are 1.5 years later, deeply appreciative for the different landscapes, people, and experiences we’ve come to know, and ready to embark on a new adventure. Once again, I’m glad I’ve been documenting our experiences in this blog so we can remember them years from now.

These photos were taken in Forrest Place, a big pedestrianised square in the middle of the city named after Sir John Forrest, the first Premier of Western Australia. Just like a piazza in Italy, it has its own fountain, though it doesn’t look quite the same without the accompanying obelisks or renaissance statues. I’ve read that the square has a history of being a focal point for significant political meetings and demonstrations, but nowadays Forrest Place is used for cultural displays, children’s activities, parades, and food markets throughout the year.
