Healthy living Perth & suggestions of road trips in Western Australia

Following my previous post about Healthy Eating options in Perth, here is now a selection of the things I enjoyed doing as a full-time nutrition student in Western Australia (WA).

WA has way more to offer. This post contains a few memories only of our time over there. Simple pleasures in life include…

Going for a swim

Floreat Beach

Floreat Beach

Kite surf Perth

Perth is really windy. Perfect weather for kite surfers!

Running next to the water

There is something about the ocean/river/water that makes it really relaxing. And if possible enjoying a beautiful view while training makes the workout a little easier.

Swan River (East Perth)

Stretching while watching the sunset was a nice bonus. The weather is fantastic in Perth. You can spend plenty of time outdoors and get all the vitamin D you need from the sun. But careful it gets very hot in summer!

Furthermore there is so much to explore in Western Australia. Travelling and changing day to day routine is really good to put things into perspective.

Few suggestions of road trips

it is important to enjoy driving and spending time in the car as the distances are usually important…

But with a nice and healthy homemade picnic made by the nutrition student in charge we only had to enjoy the view 🙂

Healthy living

I found Perth to be a really good place to focus on your health, career and personal life as the lifestyle is pretty laid-back.

Reading in the sun... Did a lot of that in Perth.... Studying mainlyReading in the sun…

Staying home. Chilling. My student life abroad haha

 And you can also find many lovely other options to celebrate with friends.

Or may be an organic wine? One glass now an again is ok... Moderation is the key!!!

In conclusion

Thank you for everything Perth and Western Australia! You’ve been very good to us xx
