Some people are inspired to change their lives once they've seen the sights of
Paris New York or even mountain top Italian villages but this was the sight that changed my life I grew up in Adelaide, a city of endless breweries where Australian Football is king
and the connection between sport and alcohol is immortalised each year on a city brewery Each year the brewery paints it's chimney with the colours of the winning football team
It's also a place where pubs have names like World's EndI used to catch the bus to work each day. Each day I would read the timetable and wait. Sometimes the bus came on time. Sometimes it didn't. Most of the time, it didn't come at all, so when I saw this sign which offered a promise of ONLY a 15 minute wait I was delighted!
So I set off with new optimism and I waited and waited and when I found that the buses still didn't come, I bought a bike and began cycling to work
I guess I should have been inspired by my mum. She's now 70 and still cycles most days.
I love that her helmet was chic well before certain movements made it so....
15 years later, Adelaide now has a tram system
which takes you past icons such as the Coke Factory
I will always thank Adelaide Metro system, because, had it worked, I may never have discovered the delights of cycling to work or of discovering Adelaide by bike!
