img_9963.jpgIt’s been a while since we’ve been to Adelaide (Dec 23), but still, I would like to post some photos on the website. What I didn’t know until my Mom told me is where the name “Adelaide” comes from: The city was named after Adelheid von Sachsen-Meiningen, Queen Escort of William IV. Those Thuringians again…

Approaching Adelaide was great as mentioned in a previous article – we drove through the wine country and stopped at the Wolf Blass vineyard for a visit. The city itself is an interesting mix of old and new buildings. Many parks surround the city core, and these as well as a mountain range close to the city provide good opportunities to spend time outdoors.
