NZ (2 ) 纽西兰



















Second day in Christchurch.

Cloudy but no rain. The temperature was cool ( like Genting Highlands) with occasional ray of sun broke through the cloud, allowing us a short glimpse of the blue sky. That was enough to get me sun-burned. Sun-block and moisturizer in this region is very important to protect your skin.

Feeling a bit dismay and gloomy, but cheered up when we finally got our rented car – a 2005 Camry at NZ 69.00 per day unlimited mileage. We left Christchurch after breakfast.

We took the scenic road (Highway 72) to Lake Tekapo instead of the normal tourist route. The scene was breath-taking. We went through small townships, rolling hills and many many sheep and cattle. We still have the chance to see the beautiful wild flowers along the way.

We stopped whenever we liked, ate whatever and whenever we chose … Driving along the scenic country roads was such a great relaxed and wonderful experience.

The view near Lake Tekapo was great … with snow-capped mountains as the back drop, yellow flowers blooming along the road sides.

At last, we arrived at the world famous Lake Tekapo and the little church by the side of the lake- The Good Shepherd Church.

We allowed ourselves some luxury by staying at a motel by the lake side.


这是我们在纽西兰的第二天。早上天空多云,凉爽(好像云顶高原般),偶尔太阳冲破云层,短暂的看到蓝天。虽是没有很多太阳,但已经足够把我皮肤晒得红红的。所以,在这地区,防晒工夫必须做足,免对皮肤受损。

天气使得我有点心情低落及沉闷,但拿到了所租车之后,心情马上好转。我们租用了一辆丰田2005 Camry,每天租金六十九纽元。

我们今天将南下,到闻名的Tekapo湖及屹立在湖边的善牧教堂观光。我们不走通常游客的路线,而用了国道72号,风景优美的郊外路线。平坦的草原,远方的山丘,美丽的民宅,鲜艳的路边野花,还有很多很多的牛和羊,真是一个心旷神怡的体验。

我们随心意,想停就停,想吃就吃,任何时候,任何地方,自由自在。

将近Lake Tekapo 湖的风景非常优美,远方雪盖的山峰,清晰可见,加上满山的黄花,的确迷人。

我们也看到了游客指南里,一定提到的善牧小教堂,它就屹立在湖边的小丘上。

我们决定对自己慷慨些,今晚就住进了湖边的汽车酒店,坐在门口就可以欣赏到湖及雪盖的山峦。

Godpa,有没有进去善牧小堂?里面祭台后面玻璃窗。坐在里面望向祭台,看到的是十字架+ 一片湖泊雪山美景。
很感动景色。。。
