Popular Tourist Attractions in New Zealand

David Psimer, the CEO and owner of the commercial construction company DP Builders, in Gray, Tennessee, enjoys traveling the world when he has the chance. Over the years, David Psimer has visited Canada, various countries in Africa, and New Zealand.

New Zealand is widely known for its range of environments and terrains. This variety gives New Zealand a unique assortment of tourist attractions, including the following.

– Coromandel Peninsula: Arguably New Zealand’s favorite tourist destination, the Coromandel Peninsula offers outstanding views of the coast, a rainforest, and white and golden sand beaches. Visitors can engage in a huge array of activities on the peninsula, ranging from digging their own hot pool to taking a glass-bottom boat out to Cathedral Cove.

– Sky Tower: For tourists who enjoy more city-based activities, Sky Tower rises up 1,076 feet above New Zealand’s largest city, Auckland. It is the Southern Hemisphere’s tallest free-standing structure and allows visitors to see about 50 miles all around them. Sky Tower is also home to a revolving fine-dining restaurant.

– Fiordland National Park: Recognized as a World Heritage site, Fiordland National Park is the largest national park in the world. It includes everything from waterfalls and mountains to extensive rainforests, and park visitors can view some of the best landscapes New Zealand has to offer. Fiordland National Park is also home to Doubtful Sound and Milford Sound.

Developing a Good Golf Swing as a Beginner

Owner of DP Builders, David Psimer advises his project analysts and meets with investors and attorneys during the process of building multifamily homes and commercial properties. In his free time, David Psimer enjoys playing golf.

As a beginner, learning a proper golf swing is essential to developing and maintaining a good golf game. The first step of learning a good golf swing is the grip. Without mastering the grip, trying different swing techniques is not very helpful. There are three basic grip types: the baseball, the interlocking, and the overlapping. While the baseball grip simply involves holding the club like a baseball bat, the overlapping grip involves placing the pinky finger just over the index finger. Meanwhile, the interlocking grip, which is popular for players with smaller hands, locks the pinky between the middle and index fingers.

Posture is also an important part of the golf swing. A good stance balances your weight equally on both legs while your arms naturally hang down. Finally, the actual swing is important. There are several swing techniques that suit different body types, but at a basic level, they consist of moving the club back and carrying momentum forward by moving your upper body along with the swing. Rather than focusing on force, taking the swing calmly often results in a better hit on the ball. Also, some beginners may look at where they want the ball to go after being hit instead of looking at the ball, but this may cause you to miss entirely or hit the ball in the wrong spot.

Canadian Winter Travel Destinations

A construction company owner by profession, David Psimer enjoys traveling in his personal time. David Psimer has visited a number of the Canadian provinces over the years.

Although many people think of Canada as prohibitively cold in wintertime, both the natural beauty and the culture of the country make it an appealing destination even when the air is chilly. Skiers flock to Whistler in British Columbia, though the area’s resorts have begun to court non-skiers as well with activities such as dog sledding, snowmobiling, and ice climbing. Aspiring mushers may also experience dogsledding through Saskatchewan’s Sundogs Sled Excursions, Outdoor adventurers also enjoy ice walking in Alberta’s Johnston Canyon or at Prince Edward Island’s Brookvale Winter Activity Park.

Ice skaters from across the world have enjoyed gliding down the 7.8 kilometers of the Rideau Canal in Ottawa, which opens the waterway to skating in January and February. Skating along the world’s largest skateway, visitors can view such marvels of architecture as the Chateau Laurier hotel and the Canadian Parliament. The attraction also serves as the center of such celebrations as the annual Winterlude. Events like the Quebec Winter Carnival and the Niagara Icewine Festival in Ontario draw visitors from across the world as well, while those who prefer to stay indoors can nestle into the comforts of Cambridge, Ontario’s Langdon Hall or any one of Montreal’s world-class attractions.
