You are checking the 'about me' page. Ehm... well.. better make it worth while... Tell something about myself, add a picture...

My nickname is 'Dutchie'. Or 'H'. Or 'Hél'. My real name is Hélène and yes, I am from The Netherlands. As you could have guessed after reading my nickname. Very original indeed, but I love listening to it though.

me I first came to this beautiful part of the country in 2005. After I travelled New Zealand and the other states of Australia first.
Been back in the Netherlands for two years. Worked in my field of Online Marketing. But couldn't let go of my dream to go back to the other side of the world.

So in December 2007 I took a plane back to Perth. Been and stayed at different places in Australia and New Zealand since than. Kept a blog with all my travelstories as well (check it out if you feel like it, click here)..
In October 2008 I've spend a few months in New Zealand. In January 2009, working in a restaurant for the worst wages ever, I've started to create this website. Writing (and talking and thinking) about Western Australia, while using some of my skills (+ learning a lot of new ones to): a combination I really enjoy!

If you think westausguide is missing something. Or if you think it's great and you want something like this as well. Or if you think 'hey, we could do with someone like Dutchie working for us'. Or if you just want to tell me something: feel free to contact me!
