Free internet!

Ooh, Adelaide hostel has free wireless internet. I love Adelaide hostel (Backpack Oz on Wakefield Street). It's a great one in all other respects as well, with friendly, helpful staff, free breakfast, good beds etc. And it's not very busy right now, there's just one other girl in my room. It's great to have some privacy every once in a while.

Adelaide is a lovely city overall, with lots of beautiful buildings, nice parks and plenty of restaurants to choose from. I could spend a week on Rundle Mall, which is the main shopping street, and it's nice to just walk around though I'm not supposed to buy anything. And North Terrace is awesome as well, with the University of Adelaide campus and all that. Now that's what a university is supposed to look like, with big old buildings. Pretty. The only less-that-nice thing is the shitty tap water which isn't really up for drinking, I tried and thought it wasn't too bad at first but...nah. Bring on Coles bottled water. I'm probably going to be here until Sunday, and on Friday I'm heading to a tour of Barossa Valley and some wineries. I've heard the tour is very good but they do give out a lot of free wine until everyone is somewhat nauseous...Maybe I'll even manage to put some pics up now that I have wireless. I definitely should be able to put some on Facebook as that's faster than LJ.

The train trip was mostly pleasant, with the exception of it there being not much space to stretch out as the train was almost full. I do have to say that Amtrak trains in the US win by a mile when it comes to leg room and overall amenities of the train, but this one was all right as well. The next one will be 19 hours to Alice Springs on The Ghan. Which I need to book soonish...
