Travels

There are worse places in the world than British Columbia in Canada.  Must so many places that are so far away be quite so compelling?  Although my reason for being in BC was not wine related, I could not help but to explore the local wine offerings and the locals seemed excited about them too, which to be honest didn't hurt.  I wonder if we are more blasé or Eurocentric in our paradigms?  The wines from the Okanagan Valley were impressive, particularly I thought the Bordeaux blends.  Typing an entry into "wine-searcher" yields however a nil return here in Australia, so this will I expect remain something of an impractical interest.  Fortunately, it will not be alone.
