Before arriving in Adelaide I only knew it is the driest city in the driest state of the driest continent. I was already able to confirm while our plane still approached for landing – first thoughts: brown & arid. My holiday mood slipped away shortly, but came back quickly as we travelled along the beautiful coast (a blue and yellow colour palette) of the Fleurieu Peninsula in the South of Adelaide. On our way to Kangaroo Island we even passed a famous – green – wine region (McLaren Vale); and I would be lying if I wouldn’t admit how much I loved the white of Coorong‘s salt lagoons and the blue and green of Mount Gambier‘s volcano lakes.
