I stayed 10 days at a HelpX farmstay, where I learned the easy way how it is to work in a farm (except when those stupid sheeps didn't see the gate that was right in front of them and I had to chase after them... but even that was fun!).
We had 2 days off work. The first one, a friendly neighbour (30km away) took us to Ngarkat Conservation Park, and then I realized how lucky I was to do what I was doing. I mean, he took us on dirt roads not a lot of people go to, among a vegetation that you see nowhere else, the experience was unforgettable.
The second day off, we went on a mini road trip from Keith (where the farmstay was) to Naracoorte, where the Victoria Fossil Cave is, then to Mount Gambier to see the not-so-blue Blue Lake, and then up the coast from Beach Port to Kingston. That was not breathtaking, but it was really nice indeed.
And then, after I left the farmstay, I went to Adelaide. What can I say? I think I had with Adelaide the feeling I should have had with Melbourne. An arty city center, a buzzing and local Central Market - and by local, I mean with Crocodile meat or Emu steaks, which are delicious by the way - and micro cafés sprouting at every corner. The day at Gleneg, the local beach resort, did help me enjoy it and relax
