  1. Wow, that was one of our lifetime trips. It was fun, reviewing, mate.

  2. Looks like you had a great trip!
    Barossa Valley, oh, my - in Hahndorf was a café with the portrait of author Wilhelm Busch.
    He lived 8 km from where I grew up. That was not the Australia I had in mind...
    Hmmm, too early for a beer over here.
    Great pics, thank you, I feel warmed up a bit :-)
