#fly2perth : Day 8, Hot Air Balloon!

[Travel in October/November 2015]

We had a very very early sleep because we need to arrive at Avon Valley meeting point at 4am. That’s make us leaving our hotel by 2pm, and it means, sleep real early! But, its all worth for a Hot Air Balloon experience! :) Apparently, we were the only foreigners while the rest came from different part of Australia :)

After the meeting point, they will send us to the hot air balloon location and remind us not to bring any bags. We were only allowed to bring things that is able to contain in our pockets and camera are fine, as long take off and landing we have to keep within our jacket (etc).

It was a long tired day for us because of the little sleep & the long journey to and back. Hence, we decided to go back bath and have another rest before heading out for dinner at 5pm. And our dinner was the very famous Italian restaurant – Ciao Italia~~~

We ordered a squid ink pasta in seafood carbonara sauce too! Its really good too. We doesn’t have enough stomach for dessert or pizza. Actually, we cant finished our food either haha. We actually do a take-away and have it again the next day as our brunch! :D

As much as we were really full, and not willing to go back to our hotel as its one of our last few nights in Perth before heading back to SG :( So we decided to go for a drink! We passed this cafe on our way back, and thought of might as well visiting this place. Its a random finds, and we thought it worth coming back again for their drinks and atmosphere! :)
