Blog: Olly WehringReasons to love this job, 1, 2, 3 ...

Olly Wehring | 18 September 2008

For so many reasons, I love this job. This chair I'm sitting in right now, for example, is everso comfortable. And don't get me started on the strip-lighting.

Paradise.

But beating most of these reasons is that the travel associated with this job is mighty fine (he says while packing to head to South Africa this afternoon).

So, I was interested to read earlier this week of a 'Top Ten' of wine destinations around the world, according to the editors of consumer website TripAdvisor and traveller popularity. I can't really brag, but I can tick off four that I've visited. This time tomorrow, it'll be five. Oh yes.

10. Marlborough, New Zealand
9.  Stellenbosch, South Africa
8.  Valle Central, Chile
7.  Sonoma Valley, California
6.  La Rioja, Spain
5.  Barossa Valley, Australia
4.  Champagne-Ardenne, France
3.  Tuscany, Italy
2.  Napa Valley, California
1.  Bordeaux, France

If you ask me - and it is my blog, so you must be - some folk are missing a trick if they haven't discovered Salta and Mendoza in Argentina, The Douro Valley in Portugal, and Mendocino in California.
