It’s time to check out those Australian beaches. Especially along the west coast, they are supposed to be magnificent. I was expecting to go here by myself, but while having breakfast in the hostel and talking with other backpackers, some decided to come with me. We all took the train to Cottesloe and were positively surprised. The water is clear and blue here, and the weather was just stunning. It didn’t take long before everybody was swimming in the sea. We stayed around for sunset and took the train back to Perth. On the train, while looking for things to do in the evening, we discovered there was a light show in the botanical gardens. Instead of going back to the hostel, we all went for this spectacle. Such a great day!
