Western Australia: Esperance

Why, hi there. You may be wondering if I still even write this blog. I haven't forgot about it, trust me. I haven't given up. In fact I had a bit of a crazy end to 2016 with a new job and moving house, so here I am, back and slightly less stressed/busy. So when I last dropped off, I was writing about my WA adventures.

Dog lovers in Melbourne have probably heard of the new dog cafe that just opened in Collingwood. No, it's not like the cat cafe, it's a cafe FOR your dog.
