Wine and Food in the Barossa Valley

It’s taken a little while, but I’ve finally made it out to the Barossa Valley! Was there on the weekend for a lunch at Jacobs Creek Winery and I was rather excited to see what the area looked like. It was definitely a long drive, but the food for lunch was worth the long drive …

Moon Lantern Festival

Ah, what to say. I nearly didn’t post these pictures because it wasn’t exactly the best night. Not only was it extremely crowded, but there was no crowd control and at the last minute organisers changed the route of the lanterns causing a large number of people to miss out on the show.

A bite at Marrakech Restaurant

Whoops, completely forgot that I had edited and uploaded these photos. This was from quite a while ago when my sister and I headed into North Adelaide to try out the Moroccan banquet at the Marrakech Restaurant. The food was rather good, I particularly enjoyed the chicken wrap – it was a very strange combination …

A Few Sunsets

Just a very short post today to share a couple of photos of sunsets from Adelaide – might be a bit biased but still think we are very lucky to live in Australia and see some of the most beautiful sunsets. These photos were taken over the past few weeks.

I was wandering around North Adelaide last night killing some time before dinner with Kate, and stumbled across a street filled with some rather beautiful graffiti. I thought it was rather cool and took some photos from my phone, but the following day …

Brisbane 2013, Crickey! It’s Australia Zoo

For one of the days we spent in Brisbane, Takeshi was very keen to head out to Australia Zoo and so out we drove for a good hour and a half one way (!). It’s a very nicely laid out zoo, with lots of space in each of the enclosures for the animals. There were …

Hiking Morialta Falls

Yesterday we were out hiking in Morialta Conservation Park, which is a beautiful park only 10km north east of Adelaide. We spent 2 hours walking roughly 4 or so kilometers along the First and Second Fall walks, which was great fun but maybe not such a great idea after 3 1/2 hours of martial arts …

Wandering through Adelaide Zoo

This post is very delayed, but is a follow on from our hippo encounter all the way back in May this year. You can read all about the encounter here. After the hippo encounter Takeshi and I spent some time wandering around the zoo. I was able to take a few more photos and was …
