Best part of my day

I enjoyed a full day of touring the city of Sydney with my friend Mary...
Thanks to her subscription plan she kept "checking in" the diff places we toured...

But the very best part for me was when we dropped by Lindt Cafe
and had my dose of ice cream (hazelnut chocolate)...
I have never serioy indulged and enjoyed chocolate ice cream like that before!
I really took time to finish my ice cream and hated to see it go haha

A day of wine tasting

Just the 1st of 4 vineyards or cellars as they call it, 
which we visited during our trip to Barossa Valley, SA

That place is so vast!
Literally... The fields... The vineyards...
As far as the eye can see!

A day of firsts

I didn't expect that today I'd be exposed to things violent...

A first for me to shoot at a gun range using a 9mm gun and a revolver
(Kenton Valley Gun Range, SA)

I finally met a Brit and his pets

Thanks to MC, I met a Brit in Australia... 
and his name is Richard and with his wife Anna, 
they showed us his pet Alpacas and sheep

(Kenton Valley, South Australia)

Vineyard in autumn

Look at all those colors!

The golden years have come at last

Just read

Warped sense of humor

"Where there's a will, there's a relative"

Taste of Hahndorf

There were jams and jelly etc etc

I lost count

I don't know how many ice cream or sundae I've had since I started my trip :)

Not just functional

Ikea, Adelaide, South Australia
Ever since my sis "exposed" me to interior design, I usually take a second look at the normal and even mundane interiors...

Now these caught my eye expectedly so because these lighting fixtures aren't just functional... They're pretty appealing too!

Food in Ikea

I didn't realize that Ikea
- a famous Swedish home furniture store - 
would have its own cafe inside...
Well for someone like me who spent almost the whole day 
being lost inside (and enjoying myself), 
that cafe was a godsend...

And their "bestseller"...
This Swedish Meatballs!

Can you imagine this combination

As part of my breakfast during my 1st day in Adelaide, 
my friend offered me Nutella and Vegemite (only in Australia)

Can you just imagine how their combination tastes like?
(I tasted them separately of course)

Ending a cold day with ice cream

I've been commenting since this morning that it was relatively colder today than it was yesterday, and my friend Loricel said it was maybe because of the clear sunny weather...

And what do I do? I end up looking for ice cream as dessert after another fulfilling dinner :)

Thanks Joy for my Magnum Peppermint!

Ricotta and Nutella Cheesecake

A random choice from the large array of cakes, pastries and desserts 
at Brunetti, located at Lygon Street, Melbourne

Do I blend in?

Artists had a free hand and had fun expressing themselves 
in Hosier Lane, Melbourne through various graffiti

Always part of the itinerary

I always find time to stop by a Church when I travel

This one taken in St. Francis Church, Melbourne, Australia

Sorry for the blurry photo coz I was kinda sneaky embarrassed to take a photo my bad!

Self portrait

The problem with traveling alone is that I'd have difficulty to always find a mirror to take a self portrait
