I love to travel and some time ago discovered I also love to write, combine this with my husband's photography and we get to share it all with you. Please visit us at www.facebook.com/brucevandersluisimages
Food, wine and fun
Spring is here and it is time to throw off the winter woollies and get out in the sun to have some fun and there is no better time to stretch out, escape the doldrums of winter and bloom into summer than the October long weekend.
There is a range of options on how you can progress through your spring affair escape. One option is to choose your own adventure tour which will take you through three sessions at various wineries in our fabulous McLaren Vale. Session 1 (morning) is 10.30 am to 12.30 pm, session 2 (lunch) is 12.30 pm to 3.30 pm and session 3 (afternoon) is 3.30 pm to 5.30 pm.
If the idea of getting yourself around does not sound like a great escape, then join a pub group tour. Package tours are being offered by a number of Adelaide hotels and tickets include luxury coach transfers return from Adelaide, entry to the three wineries and a souvenir wine glass to keep.
