Place 36 – Day 1: Perth πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί – Visa Medical Appointment & Car Hunting

πŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί G’Day!πŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί

We flew to Perth last night! 

We arrived around 23:30 and got an UBER to our hostel. Our hostel is classed as a ‘resort’ which is an interesting way of putting it. 

We noticed on our way to our hostel that it seems very much like an English city, similar to a city like Coventry or Birmingham, which was interesting. 

Apparently, the weather is the same, too! 

We got up and had our breakfast and then left to go about 30 minutes walk away to a BUPA clinic which we had an appointment with to get a visa medical. Our medical took a long time! We had to have;

  • A physical examination
  • A mental examination
  • 7 blood tests (only one needle!)
  • Chest X-Ray 
  • Height & Weight Check

All of this took just over an hour, and we got to wear sexy blue shirts! 


We finished up here (after Curtis had to chill for a bit due to getting blood removed!) And then we went to find some lunch. We went to a supermarket and got a pizza bun and some chocolate to tide us over until dinner time! 

We got back to the hostel and found a used car dealership nearby to see if we could get a feel for car prices around the area. When we got there, they were very much overpricing cars, so probably won’t go there! 

We found another dealership which Kim saw on the way yesterday and there were nice supercars there! An orange McLaren, 2 lambos and a Ferrari! All were actually well priced and we were tempted but strayed away. The guy actually said he has some cheaper cars, but didn’t have anything cheap enough for us. 

We came back again and looked online for some cars for most of the evening, and it seems pretty successful and we may be able to find some. 

Our hostel does $5 meals and there was a lot! Today it was sausage & mash curry and it was beautiful and there was a lot! 

We promise they’re sausages!
