Day 3

A travel blog entry by ozbuckleys


We rose at 8am and had bacon and eggs for breakfast. I repacked our bags and cleaned the room. And Richard packed the car. We ventured out to Franz Josef Glacier for a short morning stroll. The gorgeous path, lined with ferns and trees, lead to an information station before a stony trail to view a bajillion year old glacier! Photo ops at every turn …

    The most ungodly place on earth. How they have been able to stay in operation is beyond me.
