"A vacation spent in one's home country rather than abroad, or one spent at home and involving day trips to local attractions".
Staycations are taken for various reasons, laziness, poverty, appreciation of your own environment, family committments, too many cats.... the list could go on! We are big fans of the staycation and love the opportunity to look around our beautiful city of Adelaide. We have wandered around like tourists spotting unusual bits of architecture in side streets we never normally go down, having lunch, hopping on and off trains, trams, buses and boats, drinking too much coffee and generally acting like we haven't got a care in the world. The weather has been amazing also even though it is winter.
Adelaide does resemble a massive mechano set at the moment. It seems that everywhere you look there are cranes and building work going on. Global financial crisis, what global financial crisis is that! It will be interesting to see what happens next!! Hope we don't run out of money mid projects.
The following photos are from our walk and boat trip on the River Torrens.
|Loved this guy even though he looks like a fish out of water on the paving!|
