Warm Wishes, Cher
I apologise in the delay getting back to you regarding our trip to Gippsland on the 17th.
As I'm actually a Sydney girl - I haven't been around Victoria very much, and when presented with the opportunity to go Gippsland I jumped on it. The day was fantastic, The atmosphere was so relaxed, and I felt right at home.
Kind Regards, Aryanna
