Australia #1: Adelaide

It has been a busy summer, with fieldwork, application deadlines, painting the house and enjoying the nice weather in the mountains, but here is finally the first blog about our holiday in Australia. The first week of our 4 week trip to Australia was spent in Adelaide, visiting Tony's family. As everyone lives quite far apart, most of the time was of course spent catching up, playing table tennis and card games, and eating together, but we also found some time for walks along the beach and in nearby national parks. Winter temperatures in Adelaide were quite similar to early summer temperatures in Tromsø, and due to the winter rains it was very green with quite a few wild flowers. The kangaroos loved it, they were everywhere.
