Hunter Valley, Cadillac Wine Tour

A travel blog entry by birniewedding

And that is the basis for the name of their wines. We were met by who you might describe as a typical Aussie "no ****" Jen who proceeded to fill us up with more wine, whilst making fun of us, and telling hilarious stories ...

It was hot walking around the Gardens even though there ...

... editor in the newspaper poked fun at the time-based rates, commenting that the lamb roast was ready at 7 a.m and the family ate muesli for dinner. The neighbors were complaining about the vacuum running at 2 a.m., but headphones would solve that problem.
It must be working; Australia has actually decreased its electricity usage since 2009. Electricity and water are billed quarterly instead of monthly, so some families are faced with an electricity bill greater than $1,000 just ...
