d36***08A half-day tour of the lake by steamboat + Walter Plateau Ranch tour is a beautiful experience that is fresh in the memory of the Queenstown trip. From Queenstown Port to the Ranch Wharf, the steamboat takes 45 minutes one-way, a total of 1.5 hours round-trip voyage, and boat viewing. One is to watch the ancient style of the ship. The steamship TSS Earnslaw, built in 1912, has been baptized by wind and waves for more than a hundred years. It has grown stronger and stronger over time. It is the only coal-fired steamship still in normal operation in the southern hemisphere. Wandering on the boat, looking at the handsome captain at the helm, watching the young fireman swinging a shovel to deliver coals, listening to the melodious music of the teacher's nai luthier, and tasting the authentic taste of coffee and desserts. It is leisurely and comfortable. The second is to appreciate the beautiful scenery of the lake. On the deck, in front of the portholes, and in the corridors, you can admire the scenery of Lake Wakatipu up close. The lake breeze is blowing, the waves are dancing happily, the scenery is charming and refreshing.
DJDQThe extreme sports you must experience when you come to New Zealand! Adrenaline soaring! With the mentality of having to experience it once in my life, I gritted my teeth and jumped down hahaha. We must weigh ourselves before jumping. New Zealand beef, lamb chops and salmon are so delicious that they are five kilograms fatter than when they started. . . You can purchase pictures or videos after the jump. They are expensive, but they are also a commemorative. There will also be a T-shirt printed with a 43-meter bungee jump, and a free shuttle bus to Queenstown will be provided as a souvenir.
Sally19891010Parachuting was arranged in Wanaka at 3 pm, 12,000 feet, and $359. It is estimated that it will be the last one in the afternoon. It was 3 o'clock when I arrived there, and everyone changed their clothes and was waiting. I hurriedly signed and paid for the weight and chose the way of taking pictures. There are 3 ways to take pictures, the most expensive person to follow, 359 dollars. The cheapest instructor held a gopro to shoot at $199. I chose the cheapest one.
After that, I went in to change clothes. I probably didn't have time to do any training. The coach told me that I had to lean my head on him when I jumped down, and I had to lift my feet when I landed, and then immediately got off the plane. Along the way, the coach will let you say hello to the camera, and ask you what you think. I use English to talk nonsense, but I can actually speak Chinese, haha, anyway.
As the plane flew higher and higher, I had no time to take into account the beautiful scenery outside the window, and my heart beat faster. Almost ten minutes later, the cabin door opened, and the wind outside was blowing. I was the second in line to jump. I moved to the cabin door with the instructor. Once I closed my eyes, I planted.
There is a 45-second free fall at 12,000 feet. Because the wind is very strong, the sense of weightlessness is not strong. The coach kept shooting me to show me the camera. After landing at a certain height, the parachute is opened. After the parachute is opened, it is purely floating slowly, enjoying the beautiful scenery underneath. It is really beautiful to see Wanaka from high altitude.
The coach has to control the direction of the umbrella from time to time, so he feels a little dizzy. The landing was also very smooth, the whole process was actually very fast, I only took twenty minutes from start to finish. Later, the ears swelled a bit, which should be due to the pressure difference between the internal and external pressures. It will be fine after a while.
Wait for half an hour and you will be given a USB flash drive. There are also computers over there to get a sneak peek. After I came back and watched the video, I found that the face was distorted by the wind. Wearing goggles is completely a frog face. The coach is definitely better than me in finding the lens.
