Am sure she would have some tips for you. There was a special wine
which she mentioned. Cloudy Bay???
Ahhh, Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc - last week I bought hubby three for our wedding anniversary. Beautiful and comes from New Zealand Marlborough area. Claimed by many as the best white in the world! Costs around $33AUD which is about $28US.
Adelaide (my place) is a launch pad to Kangaroo Island where you will see most Australian wildlife in 1 hit, plus beautiful and rugged coastal scenery. February is a perfect time to visit and it will be Hot Hot Hot!
You can get a direct flight to New Zealand, so maybe start in QLD (Great Barrier Reef) down to Sydney, Adelaide then KI, then off to NZ.
You will enjoy!
