Kim does a Linda Blair


View 2009 Perth & Sulawesi on alexchan's travel map.

It is 3am. Kim is rather sick from both ends ... it is like Revenge of the Pharoah meets Linda Blair from Exoricist.

We went to the doctor just to satisfy ourselves that the dehydration isn't too severe that it would affect his kidneys (which were recently impacted by another event).

We don't think it was food-related as we had eaten off the same plate of food for all meals in the last 36 hours ... and it isn't the kind of food, eg. pizza where a fly may have settled on one piece but not another. It seems to be more like what had been going round his family in the last week :-(

To look on the bright side, he has a comfy home to be sick in ... imagine if this had happened yesterday on the plane and in airports.

Fremantle and friends


View 2009 Perth & Sulawesi on alexchan's travel map.

With the 5 hour time difference between Auckland and Perth I was out of the hostel at 7am and caught up with a friend Carla for a juice at 8:15! With a bit of wandering around to follow, I checked out of the hostel by the required time of 10am and spent most of the day in Fremantle [Fremantle-travel-guide-153437].

Fremantle is a lovely historic port town which is now effectively a suburb. It is hard to believe a laid back location like that was home to all the rarara of the America's Cup about 20 years ago.

We bunked with a crew friend at the Hyatt ... but not without a quick visit to the Casino where we joined up to their rewards programme to get cheap meals!

Feeling young once more


View 2009 Perth & Sulawesi on alexchan's travel map.

As a solo traveller in Perth [Perth-travel-guide-156950], I had to relive my youth at the backpackers ... it was too expensive in a hotel for one person. It was good to know that I can still feel at home in shared accommodation with shared facilities ... it will be necessary to do this again when we undertake travel to expensive Western Europe in the future.

Leaving home

I left for Perth on my own today as Kim was staying behind for another day to ensure his mother was well enough before joining me.
