The Great Ocean Road is one of world's most scenic coastline roads.

It stretches along the south-eastern coast between the Victorian cities of Torquay and Warrnambool and includes the world-famous Twelve Apostles, the Otways rainforest, various beaches and lookouts, resort towns like Lorne or Apollo Bay, and the historic villages of Queenscliff, Port Campbell, Port Fairy and Portland.

Bondi Beach after the 30-year storm

Photo gallery: Bondi Beach after the 30-year storm

Summer is here... but how was the winter actually? Pretty windy, rainy and a bit cold.

And there were several heavy storms in Sydney and around. In the gallery you can see how Bondi Beach looked like after the biggest one.

There’s only one reason to come to Hunter Valley: wine!

There are about 120 wineries and cellar doors and 3500ha of vines. No other wine region in Australia comes even remotely close to this. Most of these are boutique operations, producing 500 tonnes or less.

During one day I visited several small family wineries and tasted a lot of wine , mostly Semillon, Shiraz, Chardonnay, Mandala, Merlot, Verdelho, Pinot Noir , etc. Several of them were locally and/or worldwide awarded. And many of them can be bought just in Hunter Valley.

It was really terrific cellar door experience for me today. Plus I ate the biggest sandwich I’ve ever eaten :)

I must finish now; a great Semillon 2004 is waiting in the fridge...
