    I made it to NZ! (Part 2)

    ... time! Straight away I could see why, it swayed and creaked with only me on it! Whether it be looking from the bottom on foot, from above in a helicopter, or actually hiking on the thing itself, the main reason you visit Franz Josef is to see the world famous Franz Josef Glacier. Helicopter flights and glacier climbs costs hundreds and hundreds of dollars, so on Wednesday 4th I agreed with my bank account and stuck to cheaper option!

    This morning woke and looked out window and did a major WOW found there are snow capped mountains surrounding our bay and the sun was glinting off the range. A mist came in from the sea and swallowed it all up within half an hour but the day eventually cleared.

But from what I heard we camped, once again in an unbelievably beatific location. As we had decided to take ...

    ... more exotic than it is, but we still think it's cute! It's better than a garden shed! What we didn't realise about Kaikoura is that it's a tsunami zone. We weren't too worried about this fact until we heard another WW2 air raid alarm going off. Was there a fire or was there a tsunami?! You'll know the answer if you receive a blog tomorrow.

    ... seal! Just causally chilling out on the side of the road. We got out to take a few pics and noticed there was loads of seals all along the coast. This one just liked to play with the traffic! We arrived in Kaikorua a small little town famous for it's marine life with whales, seals, dolphins and more all living here and also famous for it's sea food with Kaikorua meaning "Eat Cray Fish" in Maori. One of the first things we did was find the world famous BBQ road side stall that ...
