... swimming in the lake were huge, I have never seen anything like it! Apparently in summer many tourists jump off the jetty into the lake. I decided I was glad it was winter as didn't fancy being eaten alive by the man sized eels! Back on the bus. Next stop, Westport. Out hostel was cute.

Even at the beginning of the walk, we could see a high part of the glacier, shining white amidst the grey mountain rock. All the way, we chatted to Seb. He is hoping to become a doctor and worked unreasonably hard to get ...
