> Anyhoo, i really, really, really loved walking around York. Wow, what a cool little town. I went antique shopping, ate a dirty big sausage roll from a bakery [pretty much the only thing pumping on a Sunday morning] + explored the old town hall + restaurants + the pub + some sheds + houses… i even went into a church + sat at the back. I used to go to church every single Sunday until i was 15 years old. Then one day, i just said to my parents [1 catholic, 1 salvation army whose dad was a pastor] that i was not going to go anymore. i didn’t understand the sermons + i hated the music [to this day i am a musical snob, which means that i judge people, yes their whole self, on account of their musical taste, it’s my dirty little shameful secret]. The church was great – it was really warming to hear people signing together, like they belong together… i only ever really see that connection these days at footy games.
> So go to York, it’s cool. It’s the oldest town inland from Perth, there’s some cool history i might add one day… or not. You might just have to Google it. But York is definitely worth a visit if you’ve lived in Perth all your life + never made in out there, or if you are visiting WA + want to see what our rural life looks like without having to go way out. Check out the price of property too, very cheap > I even saw myself living here… $280K for a 2-storey farmhouse? uber cool! But then again, i am a city girl so i’d probably go crazy… maybe once I’ve done a lot + all i want to do is read… + eat dirty big sausage rolls, i will move there.
