Moritz needed to go to an oceanography conference in Melbourne for a few days and I was given the opportunity to tag along.
“Margs” for Western Australians isn’t just a term used to order a delicious Mexican drink, it’s what they affectionately call one of the best surfing towns in the world located in the vast state of Western Australia.
8 hours north of Perth is a wonderful town known as Kalbarri! Moritz and I made an attempt to leave early for the drive, but failed miserably. Come late night, we embarked with our car packed full of surfboards and sunscreen and made our way up there.
“Awwwwwwww cute! A kangaroo!” I bounced up and down in my seat giddily at the sight of a kangaroo hopping along a field.
Then suddenly, as the sun set, the kangaroos were everywhere. Literally about two hundred or so kangaroos mingled on the side of the road threatening to boing in front of/onto our car at any moment.
I’ve been in Western Australia for the past month, and It’s perfect for antisocial nature-lovers. You can wander for hours along the green coastline without seeing anybody — which is precisely what I did this weekend in Albany with Moritz — my funny/oceanographer/surfer/German boyfriend, with a smile like this, needs no introduction.
