Last I left it in the morning of day 8, as it was around 7am when we checked in we had a full day ahead.
The place that I’m staying is Golden Dream Hotel. It’s nice, has hot water, it’s clean and it’s very central here.
First things first was unpacking and showering, as we had a great start with some breakfast 🥞 we decided a quick power nap and rest would be good.
**************** 4 hours later 😂************
We decided to hire some bikes 🚲 (not the motorised type, don’t ask me why in this whether but we did). They had on offer some that looked like they were from the 1960’s with baskets on them….. they cost AUD$1.50 for all day hire…… I look over and see two mountain bikes, I make the executive decision that I want the ones with shocks on them, they cost AUD$8 for the day (hell yes I will, my backside is actually still numb from all the bus rides I have taken, I want as much comfort as I can get)
We decide to start riding towards the lake.
My butt hurts and it’s hot…. just saying.
However I am all for a healthy bike ride and look what I stumble upon…..
A vineyard…… well why not? I would have thought this climate would not have been good for wine 🍷
This place when you finally get to the top is magic!!!! I highly recommend first getting a scooter or a driver and then head up there.
We decided to have lunch up there as it was our first real full meal in a little while, so I decided to order two meals (why not? I’m on holidays). The wine wasn’t fantastic but it was ok, the view however was spectacular.
After spending more time than is needed up there (it was probably knowing the fact I had to get back onto a bike after two meals and a glass of wine in the heat) we headed back. After finally getting back another executive decision was made…. one more small nap before sunset 🌅.
***************** 2 hours later 😂************
Waking up sunset was upon us…. it was a race to the roof top (beer in hand…. as well as the camera) to get some shots.
It was nice just to chill out up there and relax some more (especially when this trip started so full on)
After that was done we headed to the night markets. If you come here to visit and you don’t get to go don’t stress, you are not missing much.
Well that’s a quick snap shot for you, pretty simple day but really enjoyable up at the vineyard. Tomorrow is a big day on the lake, I’m looking forward to the sunrise.
