From Robe we drove on to Kingston S.E. (there's two places called Kingston in South Australia) for some of their famous fish and chips. The rest of the day we drove a beautiful stretch of the Prince's highway towards Adelaide and ended up on a camp site next to a ferry crossing. South Australia has so many rivers etc. that they have an elaborate system of free ferries in place to navigate these waterways (not sure why they don't just build a bridge). The camp site was (again) nice, and I wasn't sure why people 1 mile down the road were paying $23 for a campsite that looks just like this free one?!
On the last day of our road-trip we took a few ferries and had a stunning drive through the countryside south of Adelaide. We finally ended up in the posh beach-side town of Glenelg, one of the southern suburbs of Adelaide. Here we had booked ourselves into a hostel; a building from 1878 that has been converted into a hostel. A very nice place with normal beds (no bunk beds), a bar downstairs and a big beergarten. Since I didn't wanted to stay in Wagga Wagga to wait for my foot to heal, I got a referral for a specialist in Adelaide and intend to stay here until I can walk again. Finn on the other hand left after a few days to get back to work again.
The NYE celebration was nice enough with fireworks and the lot on the beach and since there is a bar at the hostel I didn't have to go anywhere, speaking about convenience. During the days in the hostel I can 'walk' to the beach if I want (only 100 meters) or go to some restaurants & shops etc. which are all very close and thus convenient when on crutches. I have met a lot of people in the hostel already and am not bored yet, so I guess that is a good thing. Especially since it'll be a few more months before I can walk again...
