Adelaide!!

A few weeks ago Kerry and I once again waved goodbye to relative stability and boarded a plane to the unknown. Well, South Australia, but we haven’t ventured to this part of the world before, it was exciting, scary and a little bit magical…

We left Sydney on a grey, rain soaked, Friday morning, feeling a little bleary-eyed as we were woken at 5am by the sound of a million aeroplanes overhead thanks to the Ibis’s staggeringly close proximity to the runway. It was also only staggering distance to Krispy Kremes, so swings and aroundabouts I guess!  We bravely walked the 10 minute journey to Kingsford Smith domestic terminal, backpacks, rain macs and umbrellas in toe and impatiently awaited our flight down to SA.

We arrived in Adelaide feeling a sense of possibility; The sun was shining, people were smiling and everything felt great! Our first encounter was with a very friendly cab driver from Newcastle upon Tyne, he made us feel welcome, gave us a brief overview of our new surroundings and dropped us to our door with speed and efficiency. I was sooo happy to arrive at our motel and the urge to sleep for 10 hours was very overwhelming but NO! A new city was calling, a new experience was tapping me on the shoulder and new culinary treats were waiting.

After we dropped off our bags and refreshed for 10 minutes  (literally)  we headed straight for Chinatown! This is pretty much our go to destination when we arrive in a new city.  And we weren’t dissapointed! We found ourselves a fab little veggie gem in an Asian food court which had a huge selection of vegan yummy-ness. 3 dishes with piled high noodles and a glass of soya milk all for $8.80, you seriously cannot go wrong. Here are some pictures for your entertainment 😊

Now I don’t want to bore you with a blow by blow account of our time in Adelaide, so I’ll wrap things up here. But in case you’re interested I will be blogging about more of our adventures in the city, these will include the Meet Up’s I’ve joined, the beaches we’ve visited and the wonderful wine we’ve sampled in many of Adelaides famed vineyards. This is such a vibrant city with so much to see and do. It’s steeped in unique history and has so much beauty and strength, I honestly can’t wait to learn all I can about this metropolis and  bathe myself in all it has to offer.  Here’s a sneak peak……
