昆士城,全球竞技运动之都--这是旅游局会对你宣传的,而这也是你走在那儿的街道上的感觉。那里有许多户外用品商店,以及使用最时髦的长途跋涉器具的运动达人。跳伞和蹦极已经成了人们日常谈论的话题。往远处看去,你能看到滑翔伞从邻近的山峰俯冲下来。
Queenstown is the adrenaline capital of the world – that is what the tourist board will tell you, and that is how it feels like when you walk down its streets. There are dozens of outdoors shops and athletic people sporting the trendiest trekking gear. Skydiving and bungee jumping are a common topic of conversation. And in the distance you can see paragliders descending nearby peaks.
但是昆士城不仅仅有冒险运动。美味的食物,怡人的景色和悠闲的散步使这个小镇对于即使不是冒险运动迷或已经冒险过量进而需要彻底放松的你也是值得一去的。
But adventure sports are not all there is to do in Queenstown. Great food, beautiful scenery and relaxing walks make this town a worthwhile destination even if you are not an adventure junkie, or you have already had an adventure overdose and need a day to totally relax.
从小镇的喧嚣中启程,在瓦卡蒂普湖畔选择一块地方,那里为这个城市提供了一张完美的背景。
Start by setting yourself up away from the town's hustle and bustle. Choose a location by Lake Wakatipu, which offers the perfect backdrop for the city.
在这里你有很多选择,包括从宏大而高档次的雷杰斯酒店到普通的青年旅社。从这些旅馆到镇中心步行只需10分钟,而在沿河小路上你也能拍出些不错的照片,享受一段慢跑或悠闲地漫步到小镇。
Options vary hugely, and you can find anything from the large and upscale Rydges Hotel to the basic YHA youth hostel. The hotels are only a 10 minute walk from the centre of town, and the lakeside path makes for great photography, a long jog or a nice stroll into town.
在享受了一晚宁静而放松的睡眠后,新的一天就以攀爬本洛蒙德山开始吧。从小镇公墓到这儿是往返5小时的跋涉,并且一次从头开始的陡坡攀爬也是值得的。在1748米的山顶的景色好极了,你可以看见整个湖,以及那非凡的山脉。
After a quiet and relaxing night of sleep, start your day by hiking up Ben Lomond. It is a five-hour trek roundtrip from the town's cemetery, and it is worth the initial steep climb. The views from the summit, at 1,748 metres, are stunning: you can see the whole lake, as well as the Remarkables mountain range.
早上早点出发,带上保暖的衣服和防晒霜,那儿可能阳光明媚但也有些冷。
Start the walk early in the morning and have warm clothes and sunscreen with you - it might be very sunny yet chilly.
下山时,你可以在地平线的咖啡厅停下来喝一杯并来点点心(如果你能把握好时间,傍晚时来一杯鸡尾酒会是最棒的),然后跳上吊船,5分钟内你就能回到小镇了。
Walk down and stop for a drink and a snack at the caf restaurant at the Skyline (if you can time it, a cocktail at sunset is unbeatable), and then hop on the gondola and you will be back in town in five minutes.
回到昆士城,那儿为你的一次较早的晚餐提供了很多选择。如果你想来点啤酒和汉堡,夫尔格汉堡是个不错的选择。那儿的肉好极了,且提供不错的炸鱼和薯条以及素食选择比如沙拉三明治。不然的话,你也可以在像芬兹这样的水边处所享受一份海鲜为主的晚餐。那儿有份不错的葡萄酒清单,价格也适中,从那儿你也能看到漂亮的湖面景色
Back in Queenstown, there are plenty of options for an early dinner. If you are after a beer and a burger, Fergburger is the place for you. The meat is superb, and it also offers great fish 'n' chips or vegetarian options such as falafel. Otherwise, you can have a seafood-based dinner at a waterfront location such as Finz. There is a good wine list, the prices are reasonable, and the view of the lake is great.
无论你吃什么,留点胃给冰激凌。阿根廷人开的巴塔哥尼亚店提供不错的冰激凌,夏日水果冰沙和美味的巧克力。冰激凌在手,漫步于街道间,你可能会碰上些年轻的艺人。如果天气不太冷,坐在沙滩上是个不错的选择,放松甚至在夏天享受日光浴。
Whatever you eat, leave space for ice cream. Argentine-owned Patagonia has incredible ice cream, summer fruit sorbets and spectacular chocolates. Take a stroll with your ice cream and you might be able to catch some young artists in the streets. If it is not too cold, the beach is a nice place to sit, relax and even sunbathe in the summer.
如果你提前预定的话,晚餐后去昂森温泉可以为一天画上一个完美的句号。你能用适中的价格享受一个私人温泉浴盆(团购可以便宜些),你也可以在泡温泉时选择打开屋顶和四周的墙。
If you book ahead, Onsen Hot Pools after dinner is the perfect end to any day. You get access to a private hot tub for a reasonable price (going in a larger group is cheaper), and you even have the option to open the roof and the walls around you while soaking in hot water.
温水池向南,这对一个繁星满天的夜晚里边泡温泉边找出南十字星座和其他星座的你会比较方便。
Pools are conveniently south-facing, which means that on a starry night you can spot the Southern Cross and other constellations while soaking in the tub.
