Holiday mood

No Comments Adelaide

I’m starting to get into holiday mood and I like it. Anders and Linda arrived on Saturday and we had a nice weekend together visiting the International Flower & Garden show in Carlton, showing them the city and having barbecues on the balcony. I had to go back to work on the Monday and Tuesday but Simon had time off so he kept then busy with some shopping, a trip to Torquay and a visit to Williamstown.

Yesterday, my first holiday day, we flew over to Adelaide to visit Simon’s family. A rainy first day offered some more shopping and I bought myself a pair of Merrell shoes so now I’m prepared for all the walking!

Today we’ve spent the day getting up close and personal with some of Australia’s wildlife petting both koalas and kangaroos.

Comfy camping

2 Comments Victoria (VIC)

The same day we arrived in Melbourne after leaving Adelaide we took the train and bus up to Strathmerton (around 240 km from Melbourne) to go camping along the Murray River. We had a couple of nice days just hanging out at camp. It was relaxing doing nothing, just sit around the fire talking, go for a swim, read a book, drink beer and watch a movie at night on the big screen. That’s what I call comfy camping.

It’s pretty by the river.

Mt Lofty & Cleland Wildlife Park

2 Comments Adelaide, South Australia (SA)

Another great day down under is almost over. Not that hot today, “only” around 26 degrees so it was actually a perfect day for today’s adventures which offered a trip to Mt Lofty and a visit to Cleland Wildlife Park as well as my first bodyboarding attempt. I think I caught more seawater in my mouth than I caught waves during the last one though but at least I had fun trying.

View from the Mt Lofty summit, Adelaide CBD in the center.

One of Anna’s favourite Aussie animals. This beauty sat in a tree right by the road and Anna was just 1 meter away from it when she took the photo. (Australia)
