Welcome to Perthtravelers. I’m Wendy, a 52 year old wife and mum to twin teenage girls. I was born in London and lived there until I was 30. Dave is from Perth, Australia, and we met in London when he was travelling around Europe. I moved to Perth where we got married and this is now our base while we raise our children.
We all love to travel and have new adventures. I enjoy experiencing new cultures, foods and languages in different countries and believe it plays a big part in the children’s learning. I feel it is important to create life-long memories for our daughters, as well as being an ideal time to bond as a family.
If we are not travelling, as we can only go in school holidays at the moment, then we are exploring our own backyard in Western Australia. Even more so, at the moment.
This blog started as a hobby and an outlet for my passion of travel and adventure. I hope that my travel guides and reviews of destinations, hotels, tours and restaurants help with planning your holiday.
My email is Wendy@Perthtravelers.com if you would like to contact me.

Thank you 🙂
