A quick trip to Aussie

Postby Mark » Wed Oct 24, 2018 1:50 pm

Its been a while since this section had a post - so here are a couple of pics from Australia. For the half term, we are in Sydney, with a couple of days in the Hunter Valley. That was an experience. I booked a cottage in a winery. In the middle of nowhere, no neighbours, no phone signal, no wifi. Just us, a shed load of countryside, a couple of passing dogs and a fridge full of wine.

I’m afraid i have no idea. I was hoping you’d know! They seemed quite common, but wouldn’t let me get very close.
