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 …

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 'recipe' …

Day 8 - Greymouth to Franz Josef This morning was a strange one, me & Jennie had both put our names down for the glacier walk but we both had issues. Me & my stupid bruised toe and Jennie has been bitten on her ankle which has swollen up. Now this wasn't going to stop us plus it was really my only extreme activity (if you can call it that) …

    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...

    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.
