RETURN TRIP PLANNING (Adelaide - Melbourne)
Now that I've had three days in Adeliade, it is time to say "it's been nice, & thanks for all the cheese, wine, chocolates (& extra weight!)"...
I've had time on and off the bike, simply exploring the Adelaide surrounds and wetting my whistle on what's on offer.

I've managed to do some local bush walks, check out some artisans' food places and seen quaint charming towns & seen a fair share of koalas!

After a last check over the bike (& its first clean after 7,500kms worth of bug splatters), the orange lawnmower is ready for a return journey inland to Melbourne!
