After a dark and cold 4am start and two flights we arrived on Planet Adelaide at 9am, just in time to get to the very popular 9.30am breakfast at the adjacent-to-airport Ikea. And get this, if you spend say $30 getting an ikea breakfast (which is hard to do given the breakfast special is $1.95), you get exactly that much discounted off the price of your ikea goods - how exciting is that! If you are a) Tasmanian (us) and b)on a high protein diet (Jon), then that is VERY exciting! Adelaide is like a different planet at this time of year - to go from windy/rainy/mildly sunny Tasmania, to Adelaide when everyone is putting on jumpers if it is below 30 degrees is quite a shock. It's not as bad heat-wise this year as it has been in previous years however I'm finding my stupid ankle is really really annoying at the moment as I can't get out to run or even walk in the national park we are staying right next to.
In better news, Jon's sister has put in a pool (I think backyard pools are a compulsory requirement here) since last time so the kids have spent most of their waking hours in it and the rest of the time on the Wii so they are certainly enjoying their holiday.
