Before we reached Adelaide we passed a historic city with a lot of old cars parked in front. Sure we had to take many pictures.
We met with Cynthia in front of the Botanical Garden in Adelaide and since all of us where more into nature and parks we decided to do a short 2 days program for the city.
The center of the city didn’t impress us as much as Melbourne. North Adelaide with its Adelaide Festival Centre and two big Universities – University of Adelaide and University of South Australia – was beautifully set on the river. This part of the city had some nice old buildings and in the Botanical Garden we found a lot of camera material.
We got an amazing view over the city from the Adelaide Hills. Afterwards we drove into the Barossa Valley to do some trekking. With 0 degree Celsius and a nice bonfire we shared old and new stories. Funny wise Cynthia is planning a home vacation trip in October to Canada, so we try to meet in Montreal again. That would be fun.
The next day we did some more trekking and then Cynthia had to drive on to the Snowy Mountains. The next 3 months she is going to work in a ski resort, renting out equipment. On our way back to Sydney via Canberra we plan to visit her. Since we still have two more weeks we make our way back slowly following the Murray River.
