An unfortunate event

A travel blog entry by guernsey-girl

... make it into Franz Josef, we are booked on a glacier your tomorrow. However this will be weather dependant as we are relying on a helicopter to deliver us to the Glacier.

And there was one overhang on ...

... was supposed to do her skydive but it had been delayed and all the hikes had been cancelled. Luckily we had planned to stay an extra night anyway - for this exact senario but we still had no idea if the weather would clear up. After a lot of moping around we had a cup of tea and told ourselves to get a bit of perspective. We had done so many amazing things we couldnt get annoyed - how lucky were we to be even be able to do half the things we'd been doing? I dont know ...
