I'm an oldie who lived in Adelaide for a very long time, and am now missing it after coming back to Britain.
I miss the sunshine but not the summer heat, and I miss the space, wide roads, and parklands surrounding the CBD. It was always a joy to know where the suburbs began, and not merely drift into them.
My first job was in an office on the western side of Victoria Square, and it was marvellous to look out across the city to the hills. I could park my little car in the square or nearby, though needed to keep an eye out for "sticker lickers" who put chalk marks on tyres. Nowadays the square is very different and not as user friendly.
I've lived at Elizabeth, Prospect, Anzac Highway, the CBD and Toorak Gardens, so it has been quite a journey over the years. I also lived in Melbourne for a few years and had to suffer irritating jibes about Adelaide being a country town.
