          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.

          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.

          On the morning of Dec 17, it was time to head for the West Coast. The bus options in NZ are very limited, so I took the Intercity Bus to Greymouth.
          The scenery was beautiful as the drive is along the West Coast. There are no highways and the roads are narrow. When it's time to cross a bridge, it's only a one lane bridge !

          I forgot my …

          The Kiwi Experience bus dropped us off in Franz Josef just before lunch time. It's a very small town with one main road of cafes, restaurants, a mini market, a petrol station and a few activity companies. Helicopters can always be heard faintly in the background  as one popular attraction is to go to the top of the Glacier and the only …

          I was quite lucky the weather was cooperating that day. Apparently nobody was able to fly onto the glacier for the past 2 weeks and viola! The skies cleared up on the day of my planned activities.

          I took the helicopter ride to view both glaciers and landed on snow (my first experience to touch snow). Then in the afternoon, I went on a …
