There is nothing more tranquil than sitting back and listening to the birds whilst taking in the sights of the Murray River. How was it possible to feel time move so slowly? I have to say I have never felt so relaxed as my time on the Murray Princess.
My journey began from Adelaide where I departed the Adelaide Central Bus Station. I chose to travel on my own, which I was really looking forward to. My husband couldn't make the trip but I was looking forward to meeting some new friends along the way.
To start our trip to Mannum, we picked up a few hotel guests and we were then off on our scenic 1.5hour drive to the Riverland. Our coach driver Vinny was very informative along the way pointing out interesting landmarks and we really appreciated his great sense of humour. Time went quickly as we took in the scenery and we arrived in Mannum before we knew it.
As we turned the corner into Mannum, Vinny was quick to point out the PS Murray Princess. Everyone on the coach was so excited; the Princess is just beautiful and has an old-fashioned charm about her.
