While there, one of the best decisions we made was to join a tour, specifically one organized by Out & About Wine Tours. We went on the Swan Valley Winery Experience Tour and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. While I have never been on a wine tour before, my travel buddy has -- and she said that this was the best tour she's ever been on.
|Cheese, cheese, and even more cheese! Yummy!|
We also decided to stop over at Hong Kong for a few days before heading back home. Since my travel buddy isn't big on sightseeing and is more of a shopper, I trooped over to Ngong Ping by my lonesome to see the gigantic bronze buddha. I was quite disappointed though that the 360 Cable Car was under repair!!! Oh well, quite an adventure looking for the bus that went that way, but well worth it. I climbed up all 200 plus steps! Yay!
|What!?! Closed!?! I was so excited to ride the scenic cable car! Oh well, this will not stop me.|

|Buddha, bless me.|
I much prefer sightseeing over shopping. I do not mind blowing my money if it's to go see something out of the ordinary or if it's to experience something new. I hardly did any computations when I went on the tour and visited the gigantic buddha. Hehe.
