Last week we headed on our first flight since January (…where did the year go?!) from Queensland to South Australia. I have to admit, at first I was a little nervous going back to airports, but thankfully the hygiene standards in place were exceptional and here in Australia we’re currently on a winning streak of zero cases.
Anyway, we took this trip with the South Australia Tourism Commission to promote the region within our Big Aussie Adventure. Because South Australia is so picturesque, the plan for our campaign was to try to convince our Instagram audience that we had actually flown all the way to Europe and were travelling through Italy and France.
So for the first few days we didn’t geo-tag anything, we just set up our Instagram shots as usual, and posted them without mentioning where we are to see if anyone would ask “Where are you?” or “Are you in Europe?!”
To our surprise (as you can see in the vlog above) some of our audience genuinely took the bait and were convinced we had taken a long haul flight across the planet! Mission Success!
South Australia, is widely known for it’s incredible vineyards and restaurants, but also has stunning beaches and great bars, all of which we were able to experience whilst we were there.
Given that international travel is on hold for the foreseeable future and the holidays are approaching, I highly recommend considering South Australia for a little food and wine getaway. We had a great time, and left about 3kg’s heavier!
