Unley Road, Adelaide

Today i drove past Unley Road on my way to get my car serviced after work. It’s not my first travel on Unley. Amazingly, i felt the same joy when i was in Brunswick st, Melbourne. There are a variety of shops along Unley Road. I was busy looking at the shops that i was driving 53km/hr instead of 60km/hr. I think the driver behind must had thought what happened to me. oops! But it was interesting to see so many different kind of shops selling persian rugs, homewares, art & craft supply, fashion, antiques etc…not forgetting cafes and coffee places.  Now i’m excited about exploring Unley road…it’s one thing i always wanted to do but keep forgetting. I must set a day to explore it!
