A First Hand Account of Barossa Valley

Travel Journal Barossa Valley Part 1 by Sally M of London UK.

On my travels around the globe I have seen some very special places and like this one so much I think I may move there to live its called Barossa Valley hidden away in the State of South Australia in Australia . I found this place because of my love for wine and one day when I was sipping a glass of Wolf Blass Shiraz I thought... What is The Barossa Valley like? The wine label described it simply so I went and saw my travel agent who had been told about the area, she managed to find some pictures for me to look at and there my planning began.

Late the next day I returned to the travel agent in Piccadilly Circus, London and booked my travel to South Australia I flew via Dubai, then Perth to Adelaide there are more direct flights but I wanted to visit an old friend in Perth.

When I arrived in the Barossa Valley it was simply a magical place I had no expected it to be as special as it was, with beautiful old homes, with character frontages and stone impressions, this was a special start to The Barossa Valley - Accomodation and Bed & Breakfast. My tour around Tanunda one of the main townships, was incredibly relaxing there was a light breeze and the sun was shining, my mobile phone was turned off and I was walking in the not so famous, we'll if it was as famous as its wine labels there would have been a lot more tourists around. I instantly realised that a place so unique could actually exist a vineyard paradise for wine lovers! The Barossa Valley is indeed one of the best locations I had been to it was like seeing Big Ben in London for the first time when I was a kid. You arrive and exit the London Underground and there it is bigger and golder and greater than ever.

Once I gained my bearings again I found a nice piece of grass and laid down, looking up at a maple style tree thinking of relaxation and wondering how I could leave my job in London and live here, it wasn't that I was getting carried away with my thoughts, It was that I did not realise what I was missing in my life, the busy Lizzy I had become living in a huge city not really knowing anyone. The Barossa Valley gave me instant peace of mind I was hooked, I even started looking in the real estate window in Tanunda checking out how much a house was to buy.

That first evening I went to Nuriootpa to check out the local amenities, when I sat down for a quick dinner bite at a place called The Branch in Nuriootpa I realised my international trip had turned into a global move blitz in less than 10 hours! I sat ate a great meal and headed back to my bed and breakfast.

I let you know more when I update with my latest web article can't wait. Thanks for reading about my Barossa Valley experience your Sally M.
