Pssst, it’s been quiet around here, hasn’t it?
Maybe because UniSA’s OPEN DAY is coming up this week, oh yeah! Everyone has been on busybee mode getting everything organized! If you’re on one of the campuses, come say ‘Hello’ to our friendly International Student Ambassadors! We’ll be around the City East and City West campuses on Sunday, August 17 to answer all your burning questions about being a student at UniSA… or, we could always talk about pizza and movies – you pick!
Last week, I played host to a relative of mine from home and became a tourist in my own city – it was so much fun! I think sometimes we tend to forget about the hidden gems (and far away gems) because we’re so caught up with our day-to-day lives. I think it is so important to take some time off ever so often to just do something different! I mean, when was the last time you did something for the first time? (I can’t even answer that myself, how embarrassing!)
Our first stop as tourists was Victor Harbour, a coastal city 80km away from Adelaide. I’ve been here once before, but the weather wasn’t too kind to us. Thankfully this time, the weather held up, and everywhere I turned was pretty as a picture! It was cold, but when the sun is out, you tend to overlook how much you’re freezing 🙂
We had lunch at a café, walked around the South Australian Whale Centre (gold coin donation, yay!) and then took the much anticipated horse drawn tram across to Granite Island where sadly, no penguins were seen. But the views were gorgeous, and felt like scenes from a movie (LOTR, in particular).
We took a drive to the Bluff (where the above picture was taken) and enjoyed the sounds of crashing waves and the freshness of the air. There was hardly anyone there, and I could have sat there all day but we had a 1.5 hour journey to start before sunset, so my happiness was short lived. But I won’t complain – it was a day well spent, and we were lucky the sun decided to grace us with its presence 🙂
You can get to Victor Harbour by bus or car (it is a beautiful drive, trust me!)
Til’ next time!
