麦兜小少爷Gold rush dreams across the ocean——Remember New Zealand’s gold rush town As early as the middle of the 19th century, a large number of gold mines were discovered on the South Island of New Zealand, and the major mines recruited a large number of workers. New Zealand’s population has increased sharply. Dayang went to pursue the dream of Chinese people. At present, there are dozens of large and small gold rushing towns in the South Island of New Zealand, including Queenstown, which is already famous, and it is inextricably linked to gold rushing. When it comes to gold rushing, one cannot fail to talk about the history of the development of the small town of Greymouth. Before the end of the nineteenth century, Greymouth was just an unknown town, backed by the Southern Alps and facing the Tasman Sea, with beautiful scenery. Later, gold mines were discovered here, setting off a gold rush. Gold prospectors flocked here from all directions, making it the largest city on the west coast. The town we are going to today is Sandy Town, a place only 20 minutes away from Greymouth by car. Today, Xiao Zhu will take everyone to a small town to relive the gold rush dreams of our ancestors. The ancient steam train at the entrance of the town will take me into the jungle, reminiscing about those hard gold rush years. A logging plant deep in the jungle. A place for workers to rest, have a drink, chat, and a day’s hard work and exhaustion. Then it dissipates. Although the small town is small, the facilities are complete, and the local cute baby who came to play in the bank jungle has a slightly simple post office. On the other side, there is a deep nostalgia that can never be put down. The focus is on gold rushing experience. Do you go home with as much gold as you can, and you can take away what you get. Let’s take a look at the way my friends are focused. My harvest, the gold shavings deposited at the bottom of the bottle are almost negligible. Knowing that gold is not easy, haha

Although the roads in New Zealand are narrow, many times there is only one lane, but because of the lack of cars, the speed is not slow. When arriving, it happens to meet the golden autumn of New Zealand. It is golden all the way, like a fairy tale world. It is said that New Zealand is the most livable country in the world. It is not fake at all, and it is always beautiful. Pilsen Lake, which overlooks Greymouth from the sky, really sighs that God really does not give it to the blue, whether it is the sky or the lake, the blue is so deep and so deep that it seems to be sucked in.
Drive to the lake. There are already many people sitting here. Apart from our tourists, many of them are locals living nearby. As long as the rest day, foreigners like to drive to the lake to have a picnic and get close to nature. This is their favorite way of leisure. Many times, as long as a simple chair and a bottle of beer, they can spend an afternoon here, time has become the cheapest thing here, enjoying the slow life is the main attitude here. This is the life I yearn for.
