Jan and Amanda live in Perth, West Australia, where summer is about to arrive. Try not to feel too envious if you’re reading from the Northern Hemisphere…

In Jan and Amanda they write about life in Australia. Amanda is Australian, Jan is German and their posts are written in both languages. Photos of their trips to the spectacular countryside surrounding Perth are an added bonus.

Like Kyle, who wrote about learning to get on with her Chilean father-in-law for My Partner is a Foreigner, Amanda is also a professional blogger, mostly writing about travel.

In a different blog Not a Ballerina she writes about her life as a travel writer. It is the second blog of several – go there and check out the rest as well!
