    ... it was amazing, and the contrast between the big glacier we wer climbing to the green mountains and waterfalls around us. The glacier is one of few in the world that part of it is in a rainforest, and it was on NZ's highest mountain. However we found out due to climate change and whatnot it probs won't be there in 50-70years time! We flew back down and had a quick bite lunch before going to do our skydive (AHHHHH) There was a few of us doing it and one of the girls we wer ...

    ... the past few years it's unsafe to climb it from the bottom and helicopter was the only option. The clouds moved for about 10 mins so we could see the glacier so at least we got to see it, still rage I never got to climb it though! A night of watching rugby in our hostel bar and our time in Franz Josef was over. Made even worse by the fact that the weather when we left the next morning was perfect for ice ...

    We woke up into a rainy morning, but we had a small hope in our hearts that the weather would change and we would be able to see the glaciers.

    Simple breakfast was more than enough for us and we embarked on our journey. Franz Josef glacier was located only few minutes from the place where we stayed.

    Rain was slowing down and till we arrived to the valley the glacier showed up in its full ...

    ... of persuasion ("are you SURE you want to start work tomorrow? Another day wouldn't hurt...") it was not to be. On the plus side the drive back down lake Wakatipo as the sun was setting was beautiful so being the glass-is-half-full-not-whinging-poms that we are it was decided that actually this was a blessing in disguise. And so we trundled back into the same Queenstown campsite that we had stayed in the previous night, 4 pitches closer to the toilet block.
