"Walhalla - The Valley Of The Gods."

That left-hand turn onto the winding mountain road is my favourite day of the year. The day when I know I'm heading to my home away from home. It is my favourite piece of road in the world. There is nowhere on earth like Walhalla the solitude and serenity and that feeling of heading into a place where the past haunts and the future is bright.

For anyone who hasn't visited put it on the bucket list and give yourself at least two days. The list of activities is endless and the town itself is very inviting and the people are lovely, just like old Australia where people used to talk to each other in the street.

The next best part is awaiting my friends to arrive so we can all go adventuring together over the years we have camped, and stayed at different cottages that all yell stories of Walhalla history at you. We have been on the mine tour, the ghost tour, the self guiding sad and haunting walk around the cemetery, the 2km sharp, steep walk up the hill to the cricket ground, the historic Walhalla train ride, mothers day high tea, driving trips to beautiful picnic spots by river crossings, games of football, visiting the shops in the main street, eating ice creams, drinking milkshakes, dinner at the pub, but most of all quality time spent with friends and family full of love and laughter.

I can't even explain the picturesque vision this town is with it's cottage gardens, autumn trees, green grass all year round and the historic buildings perfectly preserved by a hard-working community. I'm a bit biased because as we walk from place to place I get to re-live my Wedding day going from one beautiful place to another.
