      I love the city, its small, easy to navigate/walk round, got pretty much all you need.
      All the burbs have their own shopping centres, reserves/parks/green areas - or brown areas in summer.
      I love the view of the hills as they remind me of my most loved/favorite place in the world.
      The beaches are stunning - especially in the summer.
      2hrs drive has you in the middle of nowhere....in all directions. (except westwards where you'd need a boat)

      Its familiar yet different.

      Was walking back to my car tonight - female alone in Adelaide city centre 10ish on a Friday, saw a cop car parked up and two cops 'interviewing' a suspect. Was a little uneasy as they were right by some lights where I would have to wait to cross. Drew level and overhead them telling the (foreign) young man off - for not wearing a cycling helmet! Cracked me up, I can tell you. I know Hindley Street isn't somewhere you want to be if you are alone and female (normally!) but I have never felt uneasy walking through the rest of the city at night and I did a lot of that during the Fringe. Even shared the joke tonight with an old guy who was walking in the same direction and I didn't feel uncomfortable except that he was cussing about 'foreigners who come here and don't understand the law'.

      Thats great, and thats is just Adelaide through and through.

      Best bits of Adelaide for me, the city brillinat been out a few times and got worse for wear but never any hassle, awesome festivals and concerts.


      amazing scenery, beautiful countryside, beaches to die for...very friendly locals if you make the effort......if you make the effort you can end up wioth friends for life...we have...

      There is so much the list could go on and on....

      Everything, the people, beaches, weather etc etc I have one big huge regret though...should of done it years ago so my children could have grown up here. Adelaide has changed their lives for
      the better and they are 18, 16 and 12.

      Regards Janine

      It will happen happen sit tight.....and when it happens fasten your seatbelts cos its one hell of a roller coaster ride...up down..round the bend..upside down...its scary at times...but there is plenty of guys on here all been there and done that ( if you know what i mean )

      Help and advice is plentiful on here.....:D
