The Old Gum Tree


In farming land just north of Adelaide, some friends have planted vines and are now producing their own wine. The old and stately Gum Trees that have not been cleared for this cultivation, now remain at the tops of the surrounding hills and grace the landscape with their beauty. Recently my friends were married under this 100 year old tree. It was indeed a proper country wedding.

Lately I've heard very good reviews about australian wine. Haven't had the chance to taste it yet, something I've got to do asap don't you think?!

I've checked the blog you recommended. Paradise indeed! Great pictures. Here in Brazil the best places to go for paradisiac empty beaches are in the northeast of the country (Maceio is my favourite) and in the south of Rio in the bay of Angra. It's absolutely wonderful out there! I'll show you some pictures in my page just to give you a hint. It seems you know a lot about Brasil and Rio. I'm not a visitor, I was born and raised here! But I must admit I don't relate much with Brasil's biggest passions: samba and futebol! So yes, sometimes I feel like a visitor!!! :-)

Thanks for your visit to Istanbul DP. I understand from your comment that you have been here in 1998. Was that a touristic trip or did you live here for a while? I like this tree and the story. Nice place to say "yes" :)

Oya,
Welcome to Adelaide.
It's great to see your city and to re-visit excellent memories. I travelled to Istanbul from Paris in 1998 and stayed almost a week. I was totally amazed and fell in love with a city that previously held no meaning for me. Memories of a visit to Taksim Square were rekindled after your post of the ancient red tram a few days ago, and I am still wearing the suede boots I bought in the street where you shot this tram. It's actually a most symbolic photo for me and I thank you. I remember the modern trams in Sultanahmet on a slightly hilly street and wish I could remember it's name, perhaps you can remind me. I had a massage at the REAL turkish baths and came out exhausted, and the list goes on; Aya Sofia, incredible with years of expensive restoration work, mosaics, mosaics, mosaics. The cries to prayer from so many mosques. You have an amazing city and a powerful tool to show it off with, and I say thank you.
