Tomorrow we are off to Adelaide in South Australia by train, where I can gawk out the window to my heart's content for 10 hours. We will have plenty of reading matter, plus we can walk around the train, go to the restaurant carriage etc. and look forward to a week of being tourists. Coincidentally friends took the train over yesterday and we will meet them for dinner on Thursday.
MIL will join us on Sunday (she's flying) and we have booked a car to drive up to the Barossa Valley, known for its German heritage (settled by Germans in the 19th century), German food and of course its wines. We'll have a couple of days there before driving back to Adelaide for a couple more days and then take the train back.
So I'll be taking an enforced blogging break as I doubt I'll have the opportunity or time to get to the internet. See you when I get back!
