Sep 9, 2015 - From the beginning

Who are you going with? Are you scared? Aren’t you worried you will get lost? Will you not get lonely? Where are you going? You couldn’t find anyone to go with you? What if you don’t like it? What will you do for money? I could never do what you’re doing? And the best of them all… Why are you going by yourself? These are all the amazing … (stupid) questions you will get flooded with when telling, well basically anyone who has never travelled before. Then the people that are/have traveled, will give the standard response of, “I am so...

Sep 4, 2015 - Adelaide

Thel and John reminded us that it gets REALLY HOT in Northern Australia starting in October. So, if we planned to visit Ayers Rock, now more correctly referred to by its aboriginal name Uluru, we decided we should do so sooner rather than later. Immediately we consider going by train to see more of the central countryside. On Saturday we called the Great Southern Railway (the 'National' rail company) to understand prices to go from Sydney to Alice Springs. The route actually uses the Sydney to Perth 'Indian Pacific' line, but only as far as...

10/4 Sight seeing day first stop Adelaide then the area around before heading back into the heart of Adelaide for lunch. Next stop Haigh's chocolate factory where we do the tour of the factory and get to sample some of their chocolates. Glenelg was the next stop. It was lovely to walk around without being cold. Today was just magic. From here we decided to go home as happy hour is fast approaching.

Mar 31, 2015 - Adelaide Day One

@@@@@@@ BACKGROUND Here’s some of what the Lonely Planet – Australia chapter Adelaide – South Australia has to say about Adelaide: “Sophisticated, cultured, neat casual - this is the self-image Adelaide projects, a nod to the days of free colonization without the ‘penal colony’ taint. Adelaidians may remind you of their convict-free status, but the city’s stuffy, affluent origins did more to inhibit development than promote it. Bogged down in the old-school doldrums and painfully short on charisma, this was a pious, introspective place. As...

Pete checked in from Adelaide, which is part of the itinerary as the Voyager makes her way along the southern coast of Australia. This is the last Australian cruise for this season - the next cruise, which begins in Perth in about a week, ends in Bangkok as the ship moves into Asia for the summer. Everything is going well and Pete is enjoying his time as Music Director.

Mar 27, 2015 - Adelaide - Day 2

Good Morning FOBTs, Okay, it's early morning here. So, take the "good morning" with a grain of salt. I decided to do an early update for two reasons. One, I don't know if you caught it or not, but I did not until just a few minutes ago. The beach town I visited yesterday must have been named by a wisenheimer. The town's name is Glenelg. Keeping the letter "n" twice, it is just Glen spelled forwards and backwards. Also, as I began planning my day, I looked at a map of Adelaide. I forgot when researching my trip that Adelaide is really a...

Mar 26, 2015 - Adelaide - Day 1

Adelaide - Day 1 Today's segment was from Perth to Adelaide. I realize that I may have be remiss in previous updates by not telling you that Darwin is the capital of the Northern Territory, Perth of Western Australia, and Adelaide of South Australia. Adelaide's population is somewhere around 1.5 million people. On the flight from Perth, my seat companion was from Thailand, and man was she a proverbial "white knuckle flyer." We had some turbulence leaving Perth and again landing in Adelaide. I thought I would lose my arm the almost ferocious...

Dec 27, 2014 - Adelaide, South Australia

Adelaide has turned out to be an excellent place to spend Christmas with our son, Jon Jr. (Jonnie to the family). It has a lovely setting, and there are many things to see and do in the region. To make it even better, many caravan parks in Australia (what we know as RV parks in the US) have nice cabins as well as campsites. We made arrangements in Windsor Gardens Caravan Park, seven kilometers (4.2 miles) northeast of Adelaide’s central business district (CBD), for a full-service campsite for us for a couple weeks and a cabin nearby for...

Uf Youtube findet meh es paar Videos vo dene...
