Ive been in ‘Freo’ a few days now and feeling like a local, getting used to the on/off free buses they kindly put on for folks like me. And locals. It’s a great service which run daily with 2 separate buses on slightly different routes. I now know where the Maritime Museum is, the infamous Markets, Fremantle hospital, the gorgeous Arts Centre and South beach. When I was speaking to a shop owner yesterday she said she wouldn’t live anywhere else and that ‘everyone was welcome here’. Hence my blog title.
The thing that has really struck me are the numerous green parks around, some within the grounds of the arts centre above, but others just situated quietly on various corners.
The other thing thats caught my eye are the funky eateries, vegans are well and truly catered for with funky places like ‘The Chic Pea’, The Raw Kitchen and a dear little shop which I noticed had sugar free goodies along with a great history behind it’s walls. The Fremantle Angels House came into being in 1880 when the family that lived there served meals to new arrivals on ships from England, hence the name ‘Angels House.’ Nice bit of karma right there I’d say.
Fremantle is a bustling thriving community in one of Perths oldest precincts and well worth a visit. I’m glad I discovered a air bnb in a meditation retreat, in east Freo which is spotlessly clean and most importantly lovely and quiet. Oh and you can join in on meditation classes and various courses they have on offer! “A Happy Mind is a Happy Life” is their catch cry.

Loveliness at every corner!
And so, as I continue my walking escapades around this area (I used to aim for 10,000 steps but these last few days I’m well over that) I almost forget I’m in Australia, so much of this gorgeous architecture reminds me of my travels in Europe. Especially Vive la France…
Til next blog, enjoy life, love deeply and stay cool! xx
