The drive from Greymouth wasn't long which made a nice change as we've been spending a lot of travelling since we left Rotorua. The views on the drive to Franz Josef were so beautiful. The clear, bright blue waters and snow peeked mountains were just incredible and we ended up stopping loads as we went along! On the drive into the town of Franz …

The day had come to finally leave the cozy cradle of Queenstown and see the rest of New Zealand. It was good that we'd stayed on one extra day because when we pulled out that morning we felt happy to be moving along. That sense of adventure had gripped us once more.

Our first stop was a bungy jumping bridge that rested right over the very …

    But at least the hostel is cool. Also a Spa and lots of games. A bit small dorms but nice place...if the sun shines. And if you are there in the high season. But no problems with the hostel. And of course BBH :-)

    Our room was decorated in an interesting 'ski lodge' style and had a good kitchen area and en-suite bathroom. When we asked about WiFi, we were given a free card to give us a days internet access. Amazing views of the mountains.
