|Qantas' new domestic terminal in Sydney is one of the nicest airport terminals I have ever passed through.|
|Nice exhibit of an old Qantas plane in the terminal.|
|The plane from the front.|
|The next few pictures are form our trip on TranzRail's
Southerner lines, which originates in Christchurch and terminates at
Invercargill, NZ. (We got off half way at Dunedin.)
Liam, who was sitting behind us, was very interested in my digital camera. He's wearing the red poppy in honor of Anzac Day.
|View of one of several gorgeous inlets we saw from the Southerner.|
|Dunedin's container port, again from the Southerner.|
|The Taieri Gorge Railway took us from Dunedin to a cow town
called Pukerangi. We were met there by a bus, which took us to Queenstown,
about a 4 hour drive.
Gary, our bus driver, was great. He gave us a terrific narration and made what might have been a long, boring trip a fascinating drive.
|We got off the bus at a little town called Ranfurly for tea, coffee, and snacks. I had a piece of delicious homemade carrot cake.|
|The little shop where we stopped in Ranfurly.|
|New Zealand has 47,000,000 sheep (and only 4,000,000 New Zealanders). Gary stopped the bus so we could get pictures of some of them.|
|Another sheep picture...|
|This is what our bus looked like.|
|There was also an ostrich farm along the way (and deer and cattle farms as well).|
|Clean and sober taxi in Queenstown.|
