My Journey Round The World

279 days on the road…



I might have like to stay longer in Melbourne than staying a week in Adelaide, not even going to Kangaroo Island as it was really expensive and trip where sold out as I booked too late…

Anyway, I did a Barossa Valley wine tour – yes even if I don’t drink wine! I tasted all of them :) – stopping at the World’s Largest Rocking Horse and the amazing Whispering Wall ; again with Groovy Grape agency ; which was pretty good! I learned more with our guide than going to the Tourist Office!

I also really enjoyed staying at Fraser’s place – my couchsurfer host – and taking my time for a week, no rush, no stress in this quite city with beautiful Botanic Garden and Library with free internet access :)  Fraser has a disc shop – www.rocktherapy.com.au - Olivier, you would love that, records everywhere in the house :) - He show me around, cooked for Pippar, one of his friend – with whom I spent a great afternoon around the oldest fresh produce market in the country - and me, brought me to his friend birthday where we had a hilarous evening, brought me to car boot sale - Mum & Claude you would have liked it! - drove me with his energetic Mum Lasca to Hahndorf Hill… I felt like home! I can’t wait for him to come to Europe to show him our countries and make him taste a proper mayonnaise!!!

it was great to spend time with you Alex…it was a pity about missing K.I. but anyway, next time you come to Adelaide, come for our Arts Festival month during Feb/March! heaps of free theatre and events- you will have an amazing time in little old Adelaide then! and don’t forget to make time for the Flinders Ranges, it is world famous and has it’s own special wildlife unique to that area AND also, when you come back we will take you back up the hills to see something really special. You can nearly always see Platypus up in the hills near Hahndorf, at Warrawong – a privately run wildlife park …Warrawong were the first ones to successfully breed playtypus in a sanctuary! (or anywhere else)in the world…good luck on your travels! beaux reves, Pippa
