Ballet, brunch and browsing

Last weekend saw my mum and me on a road trip to Adelaide for a cultural  and cosmopolitan weekend...

We have been planning a trip to the ballet for a couple of years now and it finally arrived.
Graeme Murphy's Romeo and Juliet, presented by the Australian Ballet did not disappoint with spectacular costumes and sets and beautiful music and dancing. Definitely something I would do again! In fact I will be stalking The Australian Ballet with my eye on the next tickets to buy.

Living in a place where there is very limited public transport meant catching the train from the Adeaide Railway Station was an adventure but one well worth having as we got to brunch with a friend in the very cool Queen Street Cafe in Croyden.

Some retail therapy was also in order and despite the long drive I came home feeling physically and culturaly refreshed...

  1. Sounds lovely Kate, I love Croydon too. So groovy yet low key. The Red Door Bakery also has amazing food and hip staff :) Your post makes me want to go to Adelaide.

  2. I'd be your ballet buddy again if invited?! Your photos are great.


Thank you for your comments. I love knowing that you're reading and appreciate the time taken to comment.
