1. Helicopter to “The lord of the ring” scenes with Helitour , Queenstown.
Queenstown is amazing by its landscape. As you know that “The lord of the ring” and “The hobbits” has chosen this beautiful country for their film. Many of their scenes in these movies were shot in Queenstown. But most of them were shot in places which could access only by a helicopter.
If I have to choose a place to stay for a chill out and relaxing, to sit on a chair and enjoy the nice superb view , for a week in New Zealand.
It must be Glenorchy!
I was panic and paranoid when I heard Ann , my host in Fox glacier , talked to police. Damn it! It must be about our working in exchange of food and accommodation. They must come to catch us as we hold travel visa.
That day I tried to keep myself as a low profile , stayed just in my room and locked myself from the outsider. Why don’t they do this to Western tourists who did the same as we did. The world is not fair for the third world traveler , I thought.
Ann told Wesley(Another helper who travel like me) and his friend to get a called from the police.
Shit!!!…They must come for us.
It was a coincident when the plane from Sydney to Bangkok had an engine problem. They delayed the flight and gave passengers a free coupon tickets to spend money while waiting for a problem to be fixed.
I was in that flight. After I spend money for lot of foods in Sydney airport and had know idea what else should I pay for the rest. I went to book store and bought the New Zealand guidebook , wishing one day I could go to New Zealand.
It was an advertising sign on a bus stop in Sydney that inspired me to have an unforgettable trip to White Haven beach, and the most important part was that it was there that I traveled by host network for the first time.
After I saw Hamilton Island on that poster, my heart kept on asking me, when and how can I make this trip? Later on I found out that Hamilton island was not as good as I expected , just because you could flew to the airport on that island. So it is a hub to explore the stunning Whitsunday islands group.
