    This hostel had a nice big kitchen and outside communal rooms. Decor a bit dated and showers require you to press button outside the showers for hot water. But it's good for a one night stop!

We also stopped by the Buller River and a few of us went horse trekking which i've never done before; my horse was very lazy and hungry and kept stopping but it was good fun :-) We stayed at Basil's hostel which I didn't …

The Internet in this hostel is rubbish I repeatedly have to retype the wifi username and password in as t doesn't stay connected for more than a few minutes which is really annoying. Last night I tried to Skype Mum …

In reality the auxiliary business sometimes were more profitable than the gold mining, for instance a shoes maker who made miners' boots ended up one of the richest men in New Zealand at the time! So Hokitika was a rip-roaring town in its day, full of colourful, if somewhat ...

    ... compared to up in the glacier!! We walked back to the hostel and had lunch, then we all had a nap as we was soo shattered!! We got up at 5 though and headed to the Franz Josef hot pools, which where really nice and hot!! It was soo nice to chill aswell!
