    The Franz Joseph Glacier - awesome

    ... exciting. It was roughly 5 minutes journey by helicopter and it was pretty spectacular and landing on top of a huge glacier was awesome. Once up on the glacier we could finally see the huge scale of the thing, it was ginormous! It went up further than we could see electric blue in places, bright white in others with huge chunks of ice bigger than houses it was incredible. We was following a guide who had a ice pick and as he walked along finding suitable paths he hacked away at the ice ...

    ... pretty impressive. As with Westport, Franz is not the most exciting of places, especially amidst persistent downpours, so for the second time this trip we spent the afternoon sat in hot pools, in the rain. Why not!

    ... a lovely day of sightseeing, it rained. And rained. And rained some more. All this rain was peppered with thunder and lightning. This went on for the entire night and into the morning. When we woke up around 6 a.m. to see if the weather was good to do our 8-hour hike, it was still coming down. The rain stopped around 2 p.m. but then returned a few hours later. It was a nice day to just relax!


    Look for our next post!

    ... to pigeon step through. At some points it was so tight we had to literally squeeze ourselves between the ice walls...this was definitely putting my claustrophobia to the test!

    As we ventured further in Oli had to regularly carve out steps in the ice with his axe for us to climb up, which is quite a skill by all accounts. I asked him if he treks the same route every day and of course they ...

    Lakes, Mountains and STRICTLY NO CAMPING!

    ... Thinking they would be somewhere remote on the South Island that we had no intention of diverting to we were happily surprised to find that there were en-route on our journey that day – what are the chances!















    So skipping out of the shop, abandoning all post card thoughts (sorry everyone) we were again on the road heading for ...
