pxy0705The labyrinth world on the shore of Lake Wanaka is definitely a place worth visiting. There are many weird and weird buildings. Many of them are not in accordance with the principles of physics. It gives people a very mysterious and mysterious feeling. The colors are very bright and suitable for taking pictures.

Parachuting
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.

Botanical Garden

xxy259The lavender manor that was not in the itinerary was stopped by Wanaka on the way to Queenstown. Although it was not the best blooming season, it was still breathtakingly beautiful! To The ticket is $10 per person, and a sticker is given after payment is the admission voucher. There are a variety of lavender-related merchandise in the store. Let's enter the park first and wait for a look when we come back. To Entering the scenic spot, there are two large arc-shaped lavender areas, which are already very luxuriant, and the elegant and fresh lavender fragrance permeates the entire garden. To Inside, there are all kinds of colorful flowers. I am ashamed that I only know lilies, and the others are not named~~~~~~ The colors and shapes of the flowers and grass are super nice, and I can’t help but want to keep them all in the camera. in. To Farther down, there are lavender manors planted in pieces. It may be for the reason of blooming in batches to extend the viewing period. Some lavenders have not yet bloomed, but they have also witnessed the appearance of different growth periods. To There are two big pigs at the end, sleeping soundly. The appearance of these two pigs is completely different from the domestic ones, they have variegated hairs, but in the end their fate is still the same... To I thought that the large area of the park was at the end, but found that there was a purple lavender in another area, and it was beautiful to pose here! The blue sky and white clouds on that day were also extremely powerful, and the films were so beautiful~~~~~~~~ To Back at the inn, I bought two cans of ice cream, the white one is Manuka honey flavor, the red one is mixed berry flavor, the former is more pure and honey, recommended! There are also 5 kinds of honey that you can try for free. If you like, you can take a bottle home! In addition to food, there are also daily necessities, such as soap, essential oil, aromatherapy, etc. All the surroundings sold are related to lavender, a very meaningful spot!

There are many beautiful towns and natural scenery around Queenstown, and tourists, who want to choose 2 or 3 places for travel according to the own preference, would select the Queenstown as the base.
