Planning our Last Adventures in Oz

March 21, 2011

The past week has been one of the busiest weeks we’ve had here in the Barossa- working, volunteering, hanging out with new friends, and generally staying busy! The Barossa Valley gets pretty boring if you don’t have a lot of money to go out and spend willy-nilly, and I become restless pretty easily. I’ve realized that having things to do every day is something I need to retain some personal sanity. One way I’ve relieved this is by volunteering at the art gallery in the next town over a couple days a week. It’s been really fun to meet some local artists and art-lovers. They put me in charge of organizing a photography exhibit about the local sports clubs in the Barossa. The opening for the show is the 16th of April, so I’m pretty pumped about that. I’ve gathered photos of the clubs ranging from about 1910 to today. Should be pretty cool!

Drew and I have about 5 more weeks in Australia before we head back to the States. There are so many things to see in Australia, and when you’re on a budget, it’s really hard to see everything in one trip.

So we’ve made up our minds that in a few weeks we’re going to do the Great Ocean Road from Adelaide to Melbourne. It’s really doable over a week, and we’ve mapped out some cool places to see. After that, we’ll spend a few days in Sydney before we take off for LA.

Now it’s time to plan the next stage of life! Back to Cali to get our stuff in Tahoe, and then… moving to Denver? I think that sounds good! I’m really happy that Drew’s feet are as itchy as mine are. 🙂
