    March 10, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Heute morgen nach dem Frühstück mussten wir schweren Herzens unsere Koffer im Apollo packen und zur Abgabestelle fahren, um ihn abzugeben.
    Per Uber gelangten wir ins Hotel, im Zentrum von Adelaide.
    Kurz danach machten wir uns auf den Weg, um die Stadt ein wenig zu erkunden.
    Wir liefen durch den botanischen Garten, vorbei am grossen Stadion und besichtigten die St.Peter Kathedrale.
    Mit einem kühlen Drink erfrischten wir uns am Rande des Karrawirra Parri Flusses.
    Zurück im Hotel erfrischten wir uns und liessen den Abend in einer Rooftop Bar ausklingen.

    Adelaide's Zoo

    January 4, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Aufgrund der unkontrollierten Buschbrände zwischen Sydney und Melbourne haben wir uns für einen Flug nach Adelaide entschieden. 🔥😕
    Mit 38 Grad haben wir dort um 19:00 Uhr allerdings auch nicht gerechnet. 😅☀
    Zum Glück kühlte es über Nacht ab und wir konnten einen schönen Tag im Zoo verbringen und dabei Tiere entdecken, die wir noch nie zuvor gesehen haben. 🧐🤩

    Adelaide Zoo

    March 14, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Weil es gestern so toll war, gingen wir heute erneut in den Zoo.
    Diesmal hatte es jedoch Tiere aus aller Welt, die wir bestaunen konnten.
    Anschliessend machten wir uns auf den Weg zum Strand, genauer gesagt in die Strandbar, welche wir beim letzten Mal gesehen hatten. Dort genossen wir die Sonne und leckere Drinks.Read more

    March 2, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    We arrived in Adelaide and found the campsite, managed to get some washing done etc.

    One prospective buyer for Bertha, living in Sydney, asked if she could arrange for a friend to look at Bertha on Wednesday, after 2:30 pm, but not too late. That’s a little under 500 miles to travel! Oh well, all part of the adventure, but that only us one day for looking around Adelaide.

    Monday morning we set off to walk into the centre. We walked past the botanic gardens only to find that they we shut 😡.

    The “Adelaide Fringe” - similar to the Edinburgh Fringe, is currently taking place and occupying a lot of the central area plus surrounding parks. We didn’t find the city terribly inspiring, some lovely heritage buildings, lovely sculptures and more vibe than Canberra, but I guess the lack of warmth and sunshine left us feeling (literally) a bit cold.

    We received another request to view Bertha from someone in Adelaide and needed to get back for 5pm. We took a tram down town and wandered around to find China Town, much better than either Brisbane of Melbourne. Another tram took us to the cultural area with the museum, library, art gallery and some university buildings. We wandered around the museum looking at the history of aboriginal life, “the longest culture in the world”, that probably makes it the oldest too. I can’t help feeling that we are losing a huge amount of knowledge around land management, medicines and living in harmony with the world. Maybe that lifestyle is a luxury that can only be afforded when the human population is kept in balance with the land it lives on.

    After our fill of culture we took a tram and then walked back to prepare Bertha for the viewing hoping that they would buy her and save us the tortuous journey back to Melbourne when we really want to go inland.

    Unfortunately, while they offered to buy her, the price was too low, we will set off to Melbourne on Tuesday morning and break the journey somewhere. I’ll also contact some people who want to see Bertha when we return to Brisbane and arrange for them to view her late in the week.

    Late that evening I received a message to say that the viewing on Wednesday was cancelled 🤬

    Shame about the cancellation! I see they have pigs like us in the town centre 😎

    I think they may come from the same litter, but I liked these more, better expressions and more character.

    Adelaide Tag 2

    April 28, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    Nach dem Frühstück bereiteten wir einen Tomatensalat mit Zwiebeln zu und gingen mittags dann wieder in die Stadt. Dort schauten wir uns unter anderem in verschiedenen Geschäften nach neuen Schuhen um und liefen durch die Straßen des Zentrums.
    Am Nachmittag kauften wir uns Hard Apple Cider, wovon wir etwas zum Sonnenuntergang am Fluss tranken.
    Zurück am Platz gab es dann sehr leckeren Tomatensalat und dann ging es auch schon ins Bett.

    Heute Morgen sind Mama und Frank in den Flieger Richtung Cairns gestiegen und wir reisen nun wieder zu zweit.

    Dann ging es zurück zum Campingplatz, wo es lecker Tomatensalat gab. ☺️

    A Test Free Day

    December 3, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    There has been no improvement in the weather today, but fortunately we have been spared huddling on a hard seat trying to keep warm!
    Luckily, our second set of tickets are for tomorrow, so we can only hope for a small improvement in the weather and England's performance.
    The emphasis today has been cultural and Adelaide can deliver this in spades. On our way out of the hotel we bumped into Glen McGrath lingering in the foyer. 'Good Morning, how are you?'says he. PL -“He clearly recognised me! Charming chap”.
    As I mentioned in an earlier report, this is a charming and very liveable city. There is a good mix of architecture, old colonial style cleverly interspersed with the modern. We walked down North Terrace this morning, which is a perfect example of the aforementioned, passing the classical Government building of South Australia, the Library, University of Adelaide, Governer Ayre's mansion house and the Art Gallery of South Australia. We lingered at them all, but made our first serious stop at the Art Gallery. It is beautifully curated and a thoughtful composition of 'old masters' and the modern. There are good collections of Hans Hysen and Sydney Nolan and a fascinating exhibition of Aboriginal cultural art called 'Tarnanthi'. We loved it. Our next stop,was the Botanic Gardens which we loved. Obviously, the Australian Genii were in the ascendancy, but the rose garden was again marvellous. There was a superb rainforest atrium and Amazonian hot house and a pleasant couple of hours drifted away. We had a spot of lunch and then wandered back along the beautiful River Torrens towards our hotel. The news of the cricket was not great from an England point of view, but the cricket chat in the bar tonight was lively. Jason Gillespie, Phil Tufnell, Damien Fleming and Tim Rice were all in attendance. This is certainly the place to be for people spotting. Let's see what tomorrow brings!
