    Here are photos I have taken in the last couple of days of Adelaide the Capitol city of South Australia.

    I don't live in Adelaide,I live approx 200 km from there in a small country town ,but I do most of my food and most other needs shopping in Adelaide, quite often staying down in the city for a night or two especially if we have any medical appointments.

    First photo is South parklands in the city , with the Adelaide hills in background , City skyline as you can see we don't have much in the way of skyscraper buildings think without looking it up the highest building would be about 20 stories
    The last is the one I posted in the winter thread the intersection of South Tce ,Goodwood Road ,Anzac Highway.We drive right hand drive cars in Australia ,we drive in the left hand lane
    Adelaide city is a square mile ,bounded by ,South, West,East and North Tce

    Thank you for sharing those photos. My son and his wife just came back from a tour in Australia for Christmas and New Year's. They loved it!

    Those pictures seemed to ignite my desire to go to Australia. It's been a long time since I had started that dream but in spite of our yearly travels, we are just in Asia. Maybe it is the budget that dictates since a Hongkong trip is cheap and very affordable. Lately we have increased our trip budget and Singapore is always in the menu. With Australia, it seems exorbitant and our other concern is the accommodation not to mention the difficulty of understanding Australian English (no offense but they have a different accent).

    I have no desire to travel abroad but I do enjoy friends and family who share their travels to other countries. My husband was in the Navy and stationed in Italy and said that I would enjoy it. Maybe but as @Corie Henson has stated it's all about finances. My youngest son takes advantage of the perks at his job coupled with his knack for finding excellent overseas tours using his frequent flyer miles. He and his wife first started touring in the U.S. then abroad.
