Where I stayed
What I did
Spent 6 days in Adelaide, with the city set up in American street fashion but having an European feel to it. I really liked the city had a quirky feel to it, loads of people, buskers, just a good atmosphere.
During my time there walked too different parts of the city, saw various street art, rundell street/mall (shopping area), Adelaide oval, botanical gardens, various statues, River Torrens walk and the market
Wasn't just a lazy bum, I went swimming with wild dolphins one very early morning. Made my way to the coast and got into a wetsuit, before the search for flipper/echo began. Didn't take too long to find a pod, and we went to the back of the boat, where there were 3 lines of rope. 2 outer ones are where people go out into the water and hold on. The middle one is a shark repeller. Jumped into the water which thankfully wasn't too bad and you position yourself so your on the side of the shark repeller. Was a strong current so was hard work getting into position plus the boat was moving 80% of the time so I was always adjusting position. Then we saw the fins close by before one swam underneath my feet, and I saw its fishy face. In total we saw about 3 pods of dolphins, none came right close to us beside the one that went under my feet, but when on the boat I got a closer look
The hostel didn't have many workers ans zombies so played some cards one night, went to some bars a couple of nights and played in a ping pong tournament where I lost to a German in the second round, bad times.
I liked my quirky little city.
