an ode to fremantle.

It seems wrong to have left Perth without making a few posts about the things I liked best about living there.

Number one on that list is Fremantle. We were only 10 minutes away from Fremantle on a coastal train and we went there a lot. ¬†Often we went for shopping: Target, Oxfam, Dick Smith’s, Dymocks. But mostly we went just to hang around in a place that liked us. Everything about Fremantle felt a little more welcoming than the rest of Perth. It has footpaths on both sides of the road, clearly despises cars, and a lot of the shops don’t give away plastic bags. Our favourite place was a little coffeeshop called Hush. They make the best iced and hot chocolate/mocha/chai. So light and delicious and incredible. And the staff are all super friendly. Fremantle also lays claim to our favourite breakfast spot: The Wild Poppy. They always have a huge selection of cakes and crumbles, their omelette is incredible and their iced tea is the best I’ve ever tasted.

So, here’s to Fremantle.
