We were ‘lucky draw’-lucky when we went about our wedding preparation – we bought wine from Cold Storage at their International Wine Fair and have won a trip for 2 to Penfolds Winery!
By God’s grace, we managed to get Treasury Wine Estates to arrange for us to head for Penfolds Winery before our honeymoon, and so off we went yesterday 🙂
It costs AUD13 per person for a one-way ride.
All settled on the mini-bus and very happy to take in the sights and sounds of Adelaide! 😀
A couple of ‘landmarks’ we got to see as the mini-bus ply the streets:
It was 8am and way too early for check-in.
We were a little hungry and went to grab a breakfast at McDonald’s; the husband checked out brochures and planned the itinerary for the remaining days.
Hello everyone! 😀
Heading to Rundle Street to check out what they’ve got, it’s their supposed ‘shopping street’!
Woolworths caught our attention.
Grainwaves spotted, a supposedly super yummy chips – we’ll grab a pack to try later in the day or in our stay 😉
The ‘Reject’ Shop caught our attention too!
Everything in there was relatively cheap.
Hello, again! 😛
That’s the University of Adelaide.
We walked around a little more and saw the South Australian Museum.
Yes, you read that right – free entry to the museum and it’s open daily! 😀
Since we had time to kill, we decided to check the museum out.
We were somehow in time for a free guided tour, and so off we went! 😉
That’s our guide, who is volunteer to the museum!
We were very glad to have been at the South Australian Museum!
Definitely a must-see if you’re going to be in Adelaide 😀
We then headed back to check-in to the hotel.
Here’s our room…
We’ve got a dining table.
A living room with television.
A kitchen for cooking.
With a dressing table too!
Absolutely awed and totally excited, until we realised that our luggage were not in the room as promised by the reception.
A phone-call to clarify later, we were in the wrong room. =.=
Here’s our room…
Nope, no kitchen for cooking.
Definitely in the correct room because we have our luggage!
Feeling tired, we took a nap and then headed out for dinner.
He’s having beer.
I’m having cider!
We took a walk home after dinner.
7.45pm and it was still so bright!
Christmas is less than a month away!! 😀
All ritey, time to sleep and get ready for our visit to Penfolds Winery tomorrow!
