South Australia Trip March 2016

My family and I travelled to South Australia for a week during the Easter Break. It was a phenomenal trip combining nature and culture. We visited Kangaroo Island and came close encountering with the wildlife and the natural sceneries; and then toured around 5 wine regions to try to be “middle-class” (as per the Financial Secretary of HK who said that drinking wine and coffee, and watching French movie, constitute of being “middle-class”).

It took meticulous planning , incredible energy and a wonderful family to pull this off and as I look back on this trip, I am amazed by the miles we cover, the people we encounter and the lovely memories we create.

Day 1: A pelican-eat-pelican world
