NZ (4 ) 纽西兰
































Our fourth day in New Zealand. Temperature at 18 degree and slightly cloudy. Cool.

We are at the Adventure Capital of the World, cannot afford not to be tempted by the many activities offered in Queenstown.

Indeed today is an adventurous day for all of us.

At 12:15pm today (New Zealand time) Tony has realized his long held dream by successfully completed his first Bungy jump at Kawarau Bridge, the historical site of world’s first Bungy jump. It was an act of courage and determination.

Later in the afternoon, we bought a package of Shotover Heli Combo ( NZ $265 per person) which consists of :

1. Jet Boating at Shotover river,
2. Scenic helicopter transfer back to Queenstown Skyline Gondola Complex on top of a hill in the city,
3. Skylift,
4. Luge ride and
5. Gondola (cable car) ride back down to the foot hill.

Firstly, Jet Boating. The excitement and fun can only be experienced in person. Speeding at 80 km/h the jet boat swerving and spinning along the beautiful and rocky river canyon course, making many precision maneuvers, passing outcropping rocks by mere inches… 360 degree turns…sheer spectacular show of skill and professionalism by the boat driver and is an unforgettable and breathtaking experience!

After the boat ride, we were taken to a helipad to board a helicopter for 10 minutes return flight to Queenstown. Great view and great experience.

We continue our adventure with Skylift and Luge ride. Quite fun.

At about 5:00pm, we took the Gondola back to the city.

Continued with our adventurous mood, we bought some beef from the Super Market and have a pictureque BBQ picnic by the Lake Side of Wanatipu.

In New Zealand (Australia too), government set up charcoal and electrical BBQ pits for the convenience of her citizens. We cannot have such facilities because of theft and vandalism, but also babi /no babi issue !

Our day ended with a leisure stroll at the Marine Parade (lake side) at about 8:00 pm.

*** Hotel broadband services are sucks! Even expensive hotels give 15-20 minutes free WIFE at lobby only. You have to pay around NZ10.00 for duration of 2 hours (1000MB) from your room… Third world mentality.

纽西兰的第四天。天气凉爽,多云,气温大约18度。

来到了世界探险之都,你很难不被这里多样的活动所吸引着。

今天是我们出去探险的一天。

今天本地时间十二点十五分,东尼实现了他长久的梦想 – 在世界『笨猪跳』的发源地,加瓦劳桥(Kawarau Bridge)成功的完成了他生平第一次『笨猪跳』。这是一个有胆量及坚决的行动。

在下午的时候,我们购买了一个『汽艇直升机』混合配套(每人纽币265元) :

1. 乘坐汽艇
2. 乘坐直升机回到市区的缆车站
3. 乘坐升天椅
4. 滑车
5. 乘搭缆车回到山脚的市区

峡谷汽艇是个毕生难忘的体验。以时速八十公里,汽艇飞驰在狭窄的峡谷河道中,和岸边的岩石擦身而过,仅隔数寸而已。船手以高度的专业技能和控制,在河道中蛇行奔驰,加上360度的旋转,使到大家都惊呼了不起,也非常享受这旅程。

嘶喊的汽艇游过后,我们被接载到直升机坪,乘搭十分钟的直升机,来到了山顶的缆车站。令人惊叹的美丽风景,迷人的山谷及市区风光,确也是一个令人难忘的经验。

在缆车总站,我们乘搭升天椅,到山顶,再驾滑车溜滑而下,相当好玩。我们可以重复的玩5次,不过三次已经是相当够了。

最后,在五时左右,我们决定乘搭缆车回到山下。

我们还是不愿意就此结束一天的探险活动,所以到超市买了牛肉及一些配料,到美丽的湖边做烧烤晚餐。在这里,政府准备电炉设备给公民使用,非常方便。这样的设备假如在马来西亚,不只连炉给人偷去或破坏,还有很多争执 – 要煮(猪)还是不要煮(猪)!

享受了简单及悠闲的烧烤后,我们到市区的湖边公园稍微散步,在8时左右,结束了这刺激美妙的一天。

**这里的酒店,不过多高级,也顶多给15-20分钟免费无线上网(在酒店大厅而已)。在房间有线上网,纽币十元两个小时。落后落后极了!

老牛爹,如果不急,請在NZ慢慢步行,等一等我們,就快要飛到了!
