      We are working here and glad we are not paying for a room here.

      Karin is German and has been running the B & B for too long. She has just accepted an offer on the property which is a good thing.

      She is trying to run the place on her own using backpackers for cheap labour. We feel sorry for her as her partner is back home ill, so she's got a lot going on.

      Everything about the place is dated. The beds, mattresses, pillows, bedding, towels. It's a beautiful property....but its unloved.

      Breakfast consists of cereal, bread, juice (measured) and tea/coffee.

      95% of the guests we have spoken to her feel that the price is way too much and that Karin can be rude.

      Might be best to stay elsewhere.

      At this point, we were pretty keen to get a car sorted and even with the problems we were still interested as long as it was cheap enough. We spoke to the mechanic ...

The pair form two of the largest and most impressive sixty-odd decent sized glaciers that creak off the South Island's icy spine, together forming the centrepiece of the rugged Westland National Park. It was here that we jumped at the chance of a guided glacier-walking trip. Eagerly clambering into our ...

      Back in New Zealand, it was a fantastic flight back to Auckland from LA. The flight was so empty I was able to grab an empty row, lie down and actually get some sleep. I must have slept for at least 6-7 hours, so I'm very relaxed. Though to Duty Free (too late for you guys who wanted anything) and then through customs, on the way ...

Afterwards, we plan to spend Saturday and Sunday sailing and exploring that area, and return on Monday. Neither of us has ever been sailing before, so this is pretty exciting!
