South Australia Trip: Day 8-9 – Hahndorf and the Footy

Our main activity for the day was to head to the German-Australian town of Hahndorf. We headed out at around midday, after having spent some time at home throughout the morning.

Week 65: Visiting the Apple Isle

After an early morning Gates Council meeting on Skype, I spent most of my Monday watching the cricket on television; specifically the Perth Test and the farcical sight of the groundskeepers trying to blow dry the rain-soaked pitch with leaf blowers. Otherwise, it was a mostly relaxing day, even though the rest of the week… Continue reading Week 65: Visiting the Apple Isle
