特色小镇之 Tirau ~ A Unique Small Town

Tirau 是个很漂亮的小镇,根据网络资料,镇上只有大概700多人,以农业为主(Tirau在毛利语里为‘一个很多朱蕉的地方’。
波纹铁是这里的特色,从旅游咨询中心到餐厅小店,都可以看到他们用这特别的波纹铁做招牌或装饰。我们在这里荡了好一会儿,还买了件特价寒衣呢!记载以下,在这里,看到好多小朋友都不爱穿鞋子的。。。
Tirau, a very small but beautiful town. According to the information from internet, the town has approximately 700++ populations, and basically its a farming town. In Maori, Tirau means "place of many cabbage trees (Cordyline Australis)."
 
Corrugated Iron deco is another uniqness in Tirau. From the i-Site to the restaurant to shops, you can see a lot of these beautiful and special corrugated iron.. We walked and shops and had our lunch here... it's just so relaxing. Besides, we saw quite a lot of kids not wearing their shoes here...
波纹铁绵羊商店,够特别吧??
Isn't it special? This is one of the shop that next to i-Site

很庆幸在回程时有机会绕过这小镇,虽然错失了其中几个,不过能看到这么一个特色小镇,也很满足了。。。
Felt so lucky that we've got a chance to stop by this small little beautiful town (tho we've missed out few others in our planned route), I can still feel the tranquility ...

喜歡小鎮的古樸和安寧,有想說在小鎮里找個住所常住卻害怕工作機會難找最後捨棄了。告訴自己退休一定要遠離人群!:D

想必儀的紐西蘭之旅志在必行了!
希望你如願!:)
