Rain, Rain and more fantastic Rain

What a difference a year makes.  In 2016 after a slow start, we have been inundated with rain and cold.  The type of cold that bites through your clothes and into your skin unless you are sitting in front of a roaring fire with a glass of full bodied red.  How good would that be… more info

Introducing the Nuriootpa Wine Trail

Euro Trip

I always love going to Denmark – even their winter rocks.  What is not to love about it?  The people, food and the places are maybe off the beaten track to most, but I would highly recommend it.  The people there are fun in whatever language they speak.  They are crazy, love a good time and… more info

It has started…
