Meeting a Real Princess in the Principality of Hutt River

I had been researching exactly what to do on my upcoming trip to Western Australia (WA) when I came upon something extremely interesting – the Principality of Hutt River.  This principality it seems is an independent “sovereign” state located in Western Australia about 500km north of Perth.  Apparently around 40 years ago a farmer by […]

Shortly after that we were dropping off the rental car with 982.7k more than it started with and getting a quick ride to the terminal. We checked our bags, passed quickly through security, and got […]

Horses and Penguins

Breakfast this morning was only served until 9:30 with a checkout at 10am and then the scheduled mystery activity at 10:30. I was mostly ready by 9:15 so we had some cereal and toast before going back to the room so I could finish getting ready and pack up. I had said that I would […]
