South Island Trip - day 5

A travel blog entry by choward14 on Jul 24, 2015

... we managed, then we got stuck straight in! There was an area of ice that made a kind of umberella, where the ice had buckled because of the compression. This is probably a good time to mention that Franz Josef is a fast moving glacier, the ice moves up to 5 metres PER DAY! Scary business. But apparently the guides have meetings every day and they know where the ice falls are going to be, so they can plan the trip around them, keeping everyone very ...

It was quite the mission to not step in doodoo. It was EVERYWHERE. We explored the limestone structures that looked huge and dopey.

... allowed for a trip into the city at that stage in the day! As soon as we had collected the car we headed straight back towards the airport! Now you may wonder what on earth we were doing going backwards and forwards to the airport but we had good reason, I promise! There is a really cool experience, and I mean really COOL - the International Antarctic Centre is located right next to the arrival and departure terminal of the airport! It was a fabulous days adventure ...
