    ... us was fantastic. We both agreed that this was one of the most spectacular views of the trip so far, with not a cloud in the sky and the sun lower in the sky illuminating the mountain. The lake was frozen (not solid), and we joined others as they skipped rocks on the lake which made a neat "whoosh" sound. After spending about half an hour at the lake, it was time to head back. The return journey was much easier, and we were back ...

    ... out in the cold trying to cook some rice on the camp stove that came with our van. When we woke up the next morning the frost was even thicker than in Queenstown, and Ed's wet trunks had frozen solid overnight! We were toasty under our two duvets though. After a quick cup of tea and cereal we hit the road, more so that we could warm up with the effective van heaters than anything else! Next stop, the West Coast beaches. Let's hope for some warmer ...

After a little bit of dinner courtesy of our kitchenette we drove round the corner to the Glacier Hot Pools!! It cost us $44 to go in but it was so worth it, we got straight into the 40 degree pool which was steaming! The pools are surrounded by native plants and ...

    In the morning a few of the girls went off and did some jade carving, personally not my thing as I don't like the necklaces so it would of been 90 dollars fully wasted! The rest of us were sent on yet another horrendous walk to kill time before picking up the carvers and heading off again. I ditched the forest walk to see another waterfall and instead opted for a walk along the beach and then a walk around ...

    View of the crashing waves against the grey sandy beach from the hotel room. A beautiful lookout to wake up to. Walked down to the breakfast hall overlooking the sea. Served a huge plate of cooked breakfast. So big that none of us could finish it. Drove down to Franz Joseph stopped at a lake on the way. Beautifully calm. Drove down lots more squiggly roads enroute to the glacier. ...
