Our second main target after the Australian open was to visit a vineyard in the famous Barossa Valley. Not only visit, but also work. With the support of Nadia's earlier manager we got in contact with the families Lanz and Thomson who both have a vineyard in the beautiful Barossa Valley. Luckily, we could stay in a very nice cottage with enchanting view, for almost three weeks. We helped out Brian in the vineyard and learned a lot about the production of Australian wines. Of course we also shared some nice bottles of wine to see, or better try, where all the work ends in. :-) We really appreciated the welcoming "treatment" ;-) we got! We almost everyday enjoyed the beautiful sunset while sitting outside having some finger lickin' food, some delicious wine and some good old chat. All with the picturesque Valley as scene in the background. :-) Anyway we had a great time and are very thankful for everything! A warm hello to Anne, Brian, Pheobe and Räff we hope you all are doing well!
Back to work after 6 months of "only" travelling. Could have been strange you think. :-) It surprisingly wasn't! After a few hours, we were back in "Swiss work-mode" and did not to bad we were told. At least we didn' t murder the vines. ;-) For us it felt like a mix between work and education. Really made the time fly.
We really hope we can come back one day to at least say hello again.
