Adelaide Part 2 - RADelaide

A journal entry from: Around the World in 80 Days!

Hello all!

The time in Adelaide has flown by.  Since my parents arrived Matt and I have been non-stop socializing with my friends and our family friends.  We've been out for lunches and dinners with different friends and had a couple really nice barbeques here at Liz's house. We are exhausted haha.  But it's been great to see everyone we could!

On Friday mom took Matt and I out to see a couple of our old houses around Adelaide and I think she really loved just driving around the city.  Matt and I were able to do a little shopping and sight seeing which was nice.

Saturday we headed to the stadium to see our first official footy game (Aussie Rules), where the Adelaide Crows managed a win.  It was a pretty neat experience.  Everyone in the crowd was so passionate about it.

That night we headed out with a bunch of friends.  We started at the Belgian Beer House which was really nice (and sold Fruili!).  Next we headed to Exeter Hotel, which we had visited previously with Liz and my friend from Melbourne, Mary.  It was 1:30am before I even looked at my watch, and we were headed out to the third bar of the evening, a cocktail bar called Fumo Blu.  At around 3am we headed to the final bar of the evening, Garage.  Matt and I arrived back at the Saccone house around 4:30am, but the friends we were out with were keen to keep partying and continued on to another bar.  The bars didn't strike me as too different to home, but the atmosphere and how bars stay open as long as they want to was pretty amazing.

It's been really great to catch up with all my friends and I just want to thank everybody who came out to see me and to meet Matt.  We've really enjoyed our time here.

It's our last night here in Adelaide and we are looking forward to the GOR (Great Ocean Road) adventure! We've booked a tour with Liz, Steph and James (some of my other good friends) and a bus will take us along the coast to Melbourne.  There should be some pretty spectacular pictures.

Hope all is well at home!  Miss you guys!
