Adelaide

If you like art, theatre, foods from around the world and music the Adelaide is perfect. It really is lovely. There is a good mix of the old and new in terms of architecture and things don’t shut early, as they seem to in Perth.

I felt quite at home today. I’m definitely getting used to this vagabond life!
D.E. spent a day or so here before she left for Alice and the tour. We met her at 12:00 and she showed us what she’d discovered last time she’d visited.

There’s a FREE bus which takes you along designated routes within the city – which is great – but we chose to walk, via the post office, and head to the market. It’s an enormous, much more exciting version of Hereford’s butter market. Only, unfortunately, they don’t sell Jelly Shoes 

Instead there’s stall after stall of every food type imaginable interspersed with coffee shops, bakeries etc. Brilliant sites and smells with posters all over the walls advertising new plays, bands and art exhibitions. Heaven! I tell you it’s winning in the where to live stakes (Baring in mind this is only the second city we’ve visited! Lol)

D.E. had booked a tour to Kangaroo Island so after a little wandering, sampling and chatting we said farewell.

I then spent and hour and a half trying to catch up with this blog – Still not managing to get it completely updated! I didn’t come to Adelaide to sit in the 24 7 so I got LOF and decided to hunt down dinner!

There is a tram system in Adelaide and for $3 you can get on and in 15 minutes you’re at the beach! It’s really lovely at the beach. It has a square (Moseley Square lol) full of restaurants and cafes. We opted for fish and chips – I had a Veggie burger – which was no ordinary burger – all freshly roasted veg + tsatsuki (MMMM Good food in Adelaide!) and ate it on the beach as the sun set.

At this point LOF was feeling a little wiped out – still got a cold – So we made our way back to the tram. He was very tired and ill looking. His sluggish steps seemed very purposeful as we headed back.

Then a mad face appeared in a pub window. Dave! Suddenly LOF was full of beans!!! LOL. A schooner of larger and a double whiskey later and we said goodbye to Dave who had a new tour to pick up in the morning and returned on the tram.

When you but a tram ticket it’s valid for 2 hours so as long as you return in that time you don’t have to pay again! Bargain! 

We got back to the hotel for about 9:45pm, packed up our belongings ready to leave the next day and fell into the land of nod…. ZZZZzzzzzz
