Couch Surfing in Kalgoorlie

Kalgoorlie Esperance hotel_, originally uploaded by gypsy woman1.

We are now into gold country. What an incredible history all the towns in this area have. Kalgoorlie is the only one that is still mining the precious metal and many of the old buildings built-in the 1890s are still standing and give the town a unique atmosphere. Many of the surrounding towns are almost ghost towns, but keep their history in excellent museums and in the old buildings themselves.

We are once more couch surfing and have met Janice who has welcomed us into her home and on the Sunday when we arrived she took us with her to a multi-cultural picnic. It was interesting to meet all the different nationalities that were there. Great start to our stay in Kalgoorlie.

Next day Janice was going to Esperance for a 4 day business trip but kindly said we could stay in her house. What a lovely trusting person. We have enjoyed 5 days here but tomorrow we will be leaving and heading for the NULLABOR. Will possibly be out of touch for a while as I don’t think there will be any internet connection in this part of Australia. It is one of those iconic places I have long wanted to experience.
