Hello mates! ;) Today we have spent the second day in the wonderful city Perth. I really think it’s a really nice town and the people are really friendly. Today, we have again risked our lives! We have experienced a Perth Segway Tour. As I assumed, my legs were hurting from yesterday's bicycletrip, so it was nice to be able to drive a segway today! We drove around with a guide and checked out parts of Kings Park. It was very interesting, not least to get that damn segway to go in the right direction. It certainly was not easy! But I will not say anything because AK had much bigger problems than me, of course! Hahah! She succeeded in some strange way to get full speed straight forward and was about to run over several people before she had to jump of in order to not run straight into a little lake. Luckily the segway stopped and AK was alive, but it looked very funny. I saw that there were several in our guided group who could not hold back the laugh and I totally understand them ;) But in the end I think we managed to drive the segway forward, and in a normal speed this time ;)
The tour went through Kings Park. Kings Park is apparently one of the largest inner city parks. We saw many unique flowers because it's part of the botanical garden. The entire botanical garden consists of more than 3000 different species of flowers, and we saw many different varieties. It was really beautiful!
We also went past the State War Memorial that is a celebration of all Western Australian servicemen and women who served in all wars and conflicts that Australia has been involved in. From there we had views of the Swan River.
After the tour with the segway we decided to walk around a bit on the assets that existed and also saw many different birds. Because of the parks size we had to go a lot and in the end my feet were complaining, almost as much as Cruella on the Safari. Of course, we could not see everything in the park, but I think we managed to see a lot. // Emma
