      I do not want to leave this hostel. Amazing, awsome. The manager want to help, want to give informations. FREE Tea, Coffee and sugar. And the glasses were clean. No "whatever that is, in the sugar... aehm.."
      Clean, place, comfy. In the livingroom was a fire...

      Rooms smaller and carmped, too much traffic, housekeeping not as good as usual though I think they try. JUst too small FOR NUMBER OF PEOPLE STAYING. there are better options I am sure in Franz Josef.

      A small in the corner spot is deceptive.
      Multi storied, sauna, staff well versed in the activities on hand and always happy to offer advice.

      Room was crap, and the advertised rates are not the rates you pay UNLESS you're a member. Advertised rates should be what everyone pays for comparison purposes otherwise what's the point, I could say my hostel is $2 a night, but then put in the smallprint there's a $100 non-members fee on top! Rip off.

      Woke up with high hope and desperate to have a glacier look today because of yesterday's failure. We just came out of hotel with "Shorts" and we were the only people over there with shorts.
      Thanks to Singapore for the "Shorts" culture :) :)

      Best part of any day used to be "The Breakfast" and found a "Asian Fusion" running by 2 …

      Get Up On The Wrong Side Of The Bed:

Climate and outside clouds were not in good in terms for our sight seeing. we waited for sometime and left …

      So there's been a lot going on and not a lot of internet access!

      I'll start with the bits I can remember the most - today! We started the day with fried mash (night before's leftovers) and fried eggs then went on our way from Hokitika town to Hokitika Gorge and the swing bridge over a beautiful turquoise river - the interpretation gave a ' …

      Today's trip was incredible. We took a helicopter ride (front row seats too) over Franz Josef glacier, that swooped right down over the ice. To be honest, although beautiful, I thought it was quite small. It wasn't until we came into land on a flat patch of ice and I spotted an ant size man down below that I suddenly realised how immense the …
