Adelaide Australia

Got to Adelaide on March 14 and starting on March 15 we wouldn’t have been able to arrive in Australia without spending 2 weeks in quarantine. Wow, just missed that bullet. We planned to stay overnight in Adelaide and get on a cruise. NOT. Cruise canceled on us so we spent 6 nights there. A great city on the south coast of Australia. We took an all day trip to Kangaroo Island.

Funny story- the cruise we couldn’t get on was still cruising from Perth to Sydney. They didn’t kick anyone off, just didn’t let new people on. We were pissed that we ran into tour groups from the ship at Kangaroo Island. But we lucked out again. If they had let us on and we would have ended in Sydney as planned we couldn’t have gotten off the ship, as Australia implemented a ban to any new foreigners coming into the country the day before the ship docked in Sydney. We would have been shit out of luck. Wow-dodged another bullet.

We made the best of our time in Adelaide , in addition to the day at Kangaroo Island we did a tour of the city, a food tour of the central farmers market, an off day, and a little time at the beach.
