One of the most beautiful places I’ve ever visited is Queenstown, New Zealand. The town calls itself The Adventure Capital of the World, and rightfully so. There are so many adrenaline-pumping activities available, the hardest part is choosing which ones to partake. My personal favorite was the Shotover Canyon Swing, but that’s a whole other discussion by itself.
I visited Queenstown during their winter, when The Remarkables was covered in white powder. The weather was chilly, but comfortable, and the air was the freshest I’ve ever breathed, especially after it rained. Having lived in smog-filled cities all of my life, the Queenstown experience was as refreshing as can be.
I broke off from my tour one morning and went to the lake while the sun was still waking up. I walked around the dock and saw this interesting steam ship. It turned out to be the TSS Earnslaw, one of the oldest tourest attractions in the area. It was getting ready to haul a bunch of passengers on another day’s worth of memorable journeys.
I loved how it was the perfect foreground for The Remarkables. Or is it the other way around?
