But we found the barossa valley, and stopped at a few wineries. Dad took over the wheel, and I got to do some tasting :) There's a lot of good wine in this country!
Of course we had to stop at jacobs creek, mainly because it's one that everyone in Norway knows about. The highlight was the creek itself, with the bridge and the sign :)
The visitors centre had a lot of interesting things to show us, lots of information and stuff, but it was all very fancy, somehow, so I didn't enjoy it that much. It could also be because I was tired after three days of driving, who knows.
But I got to try a few wines, even if there was a lot of people there. And we managed to buy a few boxes with some selction in it. I've never been a big fan of Jacobs creek wine, I don't know why, I just don't think it's the best out there, but the bottles we bought were very good value, and they tasted ok :) They're good to bring home as gifts, especially since they're sort of well-wapped inside their boxes, they don't break that easily.
And we drove past Map the Miner in Kapunda, that was pretty cool :)
