Cute bars in Adelaide

Cute bars in Adelaide


I've been living in Adelaide quite a while now, and although it's actually almost my time to leave again (in about a month or so), I would like to go over some of the bars that I really like or that I still would like to visit!

Clever Little Tailor
The first bar that caught my attention is Clever Little Tailor, at 19 Peel Street. It's actually a wine bar (I believe), but I went there a couple times for a beer. The atmosphere is really nice and cosy, and the bartenders are friendly and fun. Again, I do like the interior a lot; especially the brick walls make it homely. The beers are around $10 I think, which is of course not the cheapest - which. by the way, Australia isn't either. But, it's definitely a nice place to head to with friends.

Maybe Mae
Another bar is Maybe Mae, which is such a cute cocktail bar that's actually a bit hidden. It's at 15 Peel Street, and when you stroll around in the street you can notice its sign. The bar is hidden in a cellar, which makes it more exclusive and fun. I absolutely love the interior of this bar; the dark green in combination with the wood makes is really fancy. It's a bit more pricy (the cocktails are around $16 each), but it's definitely worth going there!

Belgian Beer Cafe
I actually haven't had the chance to grab a beer here, but a friend and I walked past it last week. This Belgian Beer Cafe definitely reminds me of cafes in Europe, which - sometimes - I do kind of miss. It's at 27-29 Ebenezer Place, another part of the CBD. The atmosphere is really different from other Australian places, because it's of course more European-looking. If you miss Belgian beers, definitely check out this cafe. It's nice - kind of - be in Belgium for a night. The interior is just so cosy, and what I'm used to!

2KW
Unfortunately, I have not been to 2KW yet, but a friend of mine has and it looks absolutely lovely. 2KW is at 2 King William Street, pretty close to Peel Street. The bar is on a rooftop, which makes having drinks here much more exclusive and exciting. The bar is quite expensive, but before I leave Adelaide I would like to have drinks here, as it just looks amazing. Especially during sunset it must be a great experience.

Botanic Bar
Last, but absolutely not least, is the Botanic Bar at 309 North Terrace. Again, I have not been here yet to enjoy some drinks, but I have had dinner at its restaurant called the Golden Boy. This restaurant was lovely, and the food was delicious - I paid $44 for a glass of wine and a green chicken curry dish, which is not too bad at all. I reckon the bar's ambiance is similar to the restaurant, which was pleasantly nice. If I have the chance, I'll stop by for a drink or two!

My Travel Plans for November

My Travel Plans for November


Even though I feel it sounds so surreal, I can say that my semester abroad is almost finished. This is my last week of uni in Adelaide, and the time has flown by so fast. Only a couple months ago I came here without not knowing what the city was going to be like, and how my university would be. I have got a couple of deadlines left, but I'm trying to get them over and done with as soon as possible, and to still explore more of Australia.

Next Tuesday the 31st of November, I'm off to Sydney with my roommate and friend Tessa. I've already been to Sydney, but I really wanted to go again and explore the city more. There are so many nice suburbs that I still want to wander around in, visit museums, the Blue Mountains National Park and eat nice foods. We're going for about six days, so we've got heaps of time!

Friday the 17th of November, I'll be doing the Great Ocean Road with two of my friends, a really famous highway (?) along the coast in the state Victoria. We'll be driving for two to three days, seeing absolutely stunning places like Loch Ard Gorge, the Twelve Apostles, The Grotto and a lot of beautiful beaches. On Sunday we'll be arriving in Melbourne, to go to the Drake concert in the evenings, which we're so excited about! Frankly, I don't listen to his music that much, but it's just really nice to go to a concert here, so why not? We'll be staying in a stunning apartment in the city center until Wednesday, and then we're off to Adelaide again. 

A lot of nice things to look forward to!

My Time in Australia #4: Roadtrip Australian East Coast

My Time in Australia #4: Roadtrip Australian East Coast


In mid-September my roommates and I went on a roadtrip along the Australian East Coast. We flew to Brisbane to spend our first couple of days there, and then drove to multiple places including Byron Bay, Sunshine Coast, Noosa, Hervey Bay, Airlie Beach, Townsville, Cairns and Cape Tribulation. Here's a clip of our amazing holiday!
