Away We Go.

IMG_8407 copyPicture this… It’s Thursday morning and I’m packing the car ready to spend the next two nights away with my two best friends. One of them currently lives in Canada (and is expecting a baby on the exact same due date as me), and the other just moved back from living in Rhode Island, USA. We are road tripping to Victor Harbor, a place where more than 10 years earlier we celebrated our high school graduation together. What more could a girl ask for!

So away we go….! We start the adventure with a day of wine tasting in the beautiful McLaren Vale region (my favourite wine region of SA – when I’m not pregnant!!). Note – pregnant ladies were not tasting (and note to wineries: non-alcoholic wine is not worth your time!) It’s hard to pick a favourite winery in this particular region, they all offer something different and spectacular. However the likes of Hugh Hamilton, Alpha Box & Dice, and Coriole Vineyards are definitely high on the list! After a quick stop to buy some groceries for dinner, our next stop was our booked accommodation for the next two nights. We found the most amazing house on Air BNB, a little country escape in a place called Mt Jagged (about 15 minutes before Victor Harbor). We had the whole farm to ourselves, apart from the grazing cows who greeted us every morning, it was absolute serenity! The next day my main man Simon arrived after missing out on the first day’s adventures due to work. We all piled in the car again and headed into Victor Harbor for a day of sightseeing, pie eating, mini golf, and cheese tasting (which happened to be right down the road from our house, amazing!) And later than night we headed out for Tapas to celebrate an early 30th of miss Rhode Island and an early 29th of miss Canada – and finished the night perfectly with churros and chocolate sauce….drool! Unfortunately we all had busy plans on the Saturday which meant we departed the house early, if only we could have stayed longer!
