... else in the family besides Mum but we survived.
Bus trip to the boats and then onto the lake for a great experience on the milky white water to the icebergs, one had turned 10 minutes prior to our getting there so was still beautifully blue before our atmosphere turns it white.

The river, presumably some run off from the glacier, was the most incredible blue, complemented by the grey rocky ground around it, with red rocks scattered about for some contrast. I realised further along, after checking the map more closely, that it is 5km from the bridge to the car park where the walks ...

The 'something' drawing me to Wellington was none other than the Lord of the Rings. Yes, pretty much all of the time I spent in Wellington, which was really not long enough, was centered around the Lord of the Rings movies. A few of us joined the ...
