One Year in Adelaide!

    Recommended Posts

    Guest becks&dan

    Hi everyone

     

    It's been a while since I posted on here but 1-2 years ago I remember how much I loved getting any info or photos on Adelaide whilst we were waiting and waiting for our visa in our tiny London flat...

     

    Well, one year on and we're celebrating our anniversary of arriving! It's been a fantastic year and we've loved almost every moment... Rather than write too much (I could talk for England on how good it's been!) here's our top ten moment list -

     

    Top 10 moments (in no specific order!) -

     

    1) Finding our land and choosing our house design

     

    2) Seeing the new year in on Semaphore beach - a hot hot night!

     

    3) Winemaking with Dave Lehmann in the Barossa Valley

     

    4) Taryn & Marks wedding in Venus Bay on the Eyre Peninsula

     

    5) Dan being the Australian Rugby team mascot, Wally the Wallaby

     

    6) Visiting Seal Bay on Kangaroo Island with Dan's folks

     

    7) Camping under Koala's at Cape Otway with Becks' folks

    9) Making some lovely friends

     

    10)Every weekend - sunshine, barbecues and amazing food and wine!

     

    Of course, it hasn't all been easy and we've had some tough times but rather than cast a shadow on my post with the info, visit our blog to find out more!!! I've also put together a cheesy slideshow (with even cheesier music that Dan hates) for you to ogle over.

    Enjoy (and good luck to all of you still waiting for your visas - I can assure you it IS worth the wait!)

     

    Cheers

    Becks
