The crew who worked in the Bank of NSW in the '70s in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, were a close and friendly group. Several marriages occurred, and we all keep in touch as much as possible. In the last decade, a group have arranged long weekend reunions every two years in various cities, as we came from all over Australia and New Zealand. I joined in with the 2011 Sydney reunion and had such a good time that going to the Adelaide one was a priority, even though I had to take another two days long service leave.
We arrived at the trendy beachside suburb of Glenelg on a Thursday evening, and from then on it was all go: Barossa Valley wineries on Friday, tram to the city for art galleries and markets, races, dinner on Saturday; Hahndorf craft shops and Hans Heyson's (famous artist) house on Sunday, pizza night at the surf club then home on Monday. The good news is that the Western Australians have taken the baton and 2015 will be in the Margaret River wine region (detecting a theme here....)
Adelaide is cool!
