Where I stayed
Couchsurfing with Chris!
Before coming to Adelaide we heard mixed reviews from the Aussies and hadn't actually talked to any travelers who had been here. Some said it was beautiful but we heard often that it was boring with not much to do
We've also visited the Museum of South Australia and the Migration Museum, which were so full of information you could spend days there. The shopping here is nice, they have a huge pedestrian street called Rundle Mall which is full of people all the time. We spent an afternoon at the Botanic Gardens which is beautiful and visited the National Wine Centre to learn a bit about the industry. They have a digital 'make your own wine' program where you have to make decisions all the way through the growing, picking, fermenting, and bottling. My shiraz was graded as:
Nick's riesling was described as "average" with "very little fruit aroma" and a "harsh flavour" - "disappointing".
So I guess we didn't learn much!
We have hooked up with 3 other travelers, 2 girls from Germany and 1 from Switzerland, and are renting a car to go to Kangaroo Island for 5 days, so the next blog will be about that! It is said to be one of the best places to see animals in the wild. Apparently koalas are so plentiful they are nearly falling out of the trees!
