All joking aside, it'd be kinda fun to be there with you guys..I'm sure Mini would slip some kind of "I'm an Adel-bot" thing into our drinks and we'll all be wandering around with big goofy grins...
But I think it could be fun, Addlebrain won't know what hit it. As usual.

Isn,t it funny the growing number of Australians who prefer other cities to the city they grew up in

Give me Brissie over Perth. In what way is Perth superior? The East coast is really where it's at. I feel I've been robbed, lol.

haha! Yep that sounds like a mighty good plan! OR maybe we could do a road trip/tour bus thingy and go Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth?
Do you think they'd cope? Poor Trimac and roo and Vichel! Imagine what a busload of crazy that would be for them!

you know what would be fun for next year.. we do the foodie thing.. central market, then we hit all the wine regions - barossa, clare, mclaren vale... i know good places for olives and olive oil in mclaren vale and a great place for a sparkling in clare... and in the city.. oysters and champagne.. then jacqs will have to admit that Adelaide can be sweet.. and Im sure we can drag Vichel to come along (esp with central market as the first stop)

As mere NZ visitors we thought Perth more attractive and interesting than Brisbane, though the shopping in the latter was handy to have if you were staying on the eastern seaboard.

You should have applied for that job mini! Did you hear of it? They advertised it as the best job in the world! Some kind of Island Caretaker position for Hamilton Island I think. A pom won it! If Adelaide was every looking for a tourism ambassador they should give you the job!

Briton wins ‘best job in the world’ on island - Down Under and beyond- msnbc.com

Anyway this trip ^ sounds PERFECT!!!! Wanna be the tour guide and organiser?
