home time – adelaide.

posted in: food., personal., travel. | 0

This was the trip I was most excited for ever since I booked it back in November.

Adelaide

I hadn’t seen my family in just over a year so it was well and truly time to venture back to Australia to catch up with everyone and see how big our puppy Ari had grown.

My trip (rather conveniently) coincided with what is known as ‘Mad March’ in Adelaide with the Adelaide Festival, Fringe Festival and WOMADelaide all happening at once. It’s such a great time to be in Adelaide – hot days, balmy nights, and just about everyone is out and about.

In three short weeks I managed to squeeze in a trip to Sydney and Melbourne to visit some friends, a music festival, a birthday party, an engagement party, beach walks, numerous coffee catch ups, lots of shopping (how I have missed Australian brands!), many late nights partying, some pool time, brunching/lunching/wining/dining at every new cafe, bar and restaurant in Adelaide, and hangs with my family and Ari.

Time seemed to fly so incredibly quickly and next thing I had to say goodbye to everyone again. It’s always hard leaving such amazing people but I feel incredibly lucky to have them in my life and neither time nor distance has changed these relationships. I left exhausted but happy in the knowledge that I crammed in as much as I possibly could with the people I love.
