Thought for the day….”Listening, not imitation, may be the sincerest form of flattery.”
“You cannot start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one”
Full power for this AirNewZealand departure from Queenstown (ZQN), New Zealand. In the background are the Remarkables Mountains. Not one of the World’s easiest airports to fly in or out of, due to the surrounding mountains, although they have recently started night flights due to the huge demand for tourist flights to the area. One of the problems caused by the success of the airport is the severe congestion on the road from the airport to the town centre. There is already talk about making a 4 lane highway from near the airport into the city centre, although the real problem is that there is not enough public transport. The town planners’ answer is to build bigger and more roads, whereas the solution should be a public transport system.
and another photo from New Zealand….Nugget Point in the Catlins. Named after the ‘nuggets’ off the actual point, there has been a lighthouse here since 1870. The area is home to many fur seals, yellow-eyed penguins and also seabirds such as spoonbills and gannets. The road to the Point is now being sealed, which will make access easy.
