Took the bus into Adelaide town centre, the express only took 35 minutes almost as quick as driving in. The centre of Adelaide is very different to other Australian cities in feel and, in some parts, look. Though there has been a creeping of the modern glass and concrete office buildings that detract from any cities individualism. It still retains …
... winery from Australia, at least the most exporting winery. Our personal opinion, way to commercial and it really lost its charms of wine-making. Not weird as it is now owned by Pernod Ricard and lost its charmes. A little bit disappointed, we went to Peter Lehmann. WOW, what a difference! In beautiful scenery – tucked away in the hills, surrounded by really old trees – this winery is one of its own. It all started when the ...
... tastings and purchases.
Next upto the Mengler Hill Lookout for a great view of the vineyards and beautiful countryside of the Barossa.
Finally we visited the Whispering Wall. The Whispering Wall is the retaining wall of the Barossa Reservoir. Built between 1899 and 1903, the dam was a revolutionary engineering feat for its day and attracted attention from all over the world. But what draws visitors to the Whispering Wall is its unique acoustic effects: ...
... nights so we could explore the surrounding area properly.
We met a lovely couple in the motorhome beside us, and they explained they've been living in their van for the last 5 years continuously, and travel short distances between towns and stay for a few days in each before moving on again. I heard a new term too - instead of grey nomads, they prefer silver gypsies! I think I prefer their term!! It sounds a lot more bohemian!
Det gick betydligt smidigare att komma in i Australien denna gång eftersom vi blånekade till alla frågor; Har ni befunnit er på landsbygden senaste tiden? Nej. Har ni befunnit er i djungel, vid sjöar eller floder? Nej. Tack och lov var det ingen som ifrågasatte vår bluff. Ännu en flight senare var vi framme i Adelaide och träffade Eva och Staffan (Karins föräldrar för er oinsatta) som varit snälla nog att köra till flygplatsen ...

The motel was one of the best appointed and kept we have been too on this trip but we still found it very off-putting as every door was covered in signs about rowdy behaviour and the consequences there of. It made us worry that it was a bit of a rough house so we had an early dinner and retired to our room. It was out at the back and well away from any noise. The chap at the Tourist information was very particular about the location of the room he was booking for us so he must have known about the issues there. The meal was in the style of country Australia, Carole's was reasonable sized entrée and with a supplement a visit to a very limited salad bar. I had a interesting main but only a single strip of courgette in a very acidic sauce as the vegetable. Looking back on it I think I was entitled to visit the salad/ hot vegetable bar but nobody thought to draw my attention to it or supply a plate. Over all I would say it is not as good as it like to think it is.
