GLENELG, ADELAIDE. The last of the 3 towns we visited in Adelaide was Glenelg, or what i just call, Adelaide City, because it’s where the malls, CBDs, and all the other non-countryside structures and sights are. It’s basically where the most cars, people, and activities other then duck-feeding or wine fermenting are seen.
The beach house at Seawall apartments was a nice, open space with a pretty beach view. The water there is so blue and clean! Well, any beach water has to be cleaner then Singapore’s. We took a trip down to Adelaide central market on the first day after checking in-I expected an open outdoor farmer’s market like scene with all it’s natural sunlight and big umbrella shaded stalls lined up, but it was more of a… cleaner, air-conditioned wet market? Hahaha. Nonetheless, we still enjoyed our time there sampling different items offered and there were still a lot of items unique to this market of course. (YAY for Porcini seasalt and Chilli salted caramel!!) I’m a huge sucker for all these special gourmet food items. I would have bought much more if not for the lack of luggage space.
We spent the following 2 days mostly in the main city. Rundle Mall was where bulk of the shopping was done. There were a few interesting local brands, and a small number of large international brands like Cotton On and Pandora. The malls close at 5pm so there was nothing much to do in town after. We drove up the mountains for a bit of Cherry picking-where the cherries were really big and sweet, albeit a bit pricey(maybe it’s because we picked too many?). We also spent a morning by the beach right outside our beach house-i prepared some sandwiches with guacamole dip for crisps, and we had a nice brunch by the beach that morning, with all the blankets and pillows taken from the apartment, heh!
That’s about all for this December trip to Adelaide! It was a typical slow, relaxing holiday where you could do all the unnecessary things and still have time for another. I’ll be pretty busy this upcoming week with all the Christmas and New Year celebrations, but i’ll update on them soon right after! Happy Christmas everyone!
