quite often hotels

We are loving the spate of strange travel writing about the beautiful island: have a look at this.

"The Rottnest Island is a great place situated in Perth, the Western part of Australia continent. This Island is only 30 minutes far away from Fremantle."

The copy talks about climate being as good as it can, there are resort-style hotels and "to know more about them, you just have to get there and you will definitely obtain your necessarly informations".

What what? Is that a bait site? Or for real? It has the ring of Svenkage being run through a web translator one too many times. We are baffled. The photo is hilarious.

Even the mainstream media can be a bit puzzling at times. This piece in The Australian enthuses about Burswood: "The sight of spare sun loungers strategically placed around the sparkling blue water tempts me to head downstairs, as the temperature is nudging 35C."

That seems warm for last month: the piece is dated July 25. It redeems itself by tacking this on the end: "The hotel is about 15 minutes by car from Perth's domestic airport and 3km from the city centre. Step out to Swan Valley's wineries and the lovely Kings Park Botanic Garden. Farther afield, Rottnest Island is 20km off the coast."
