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

    ... things on both sides we'd have both liked to have seen. Never mind though, what we did get to see was awesome. We flew over Lake Takepo and up the Godley River, which was carved out by the glacier which formed Lake Takepo and has lots of beautiful patterned river channels which flow into the lake and are responsible for giving it, it's stunning turquoise colour.

Sometimes you read in the Lonely Planet about a highlight and when you go there you realize that it is not as amazing as it is told in the book. But then something becomes a highlight which you dont expect to ...

    ... rather small and dirty.

    One thing that really surprised me about New Zealand is that all the hills were brown. I kinda had this idea that New Zealand was really green, like Ireland, but instead the they are golden brown like California in the summer. I'm sure they are really green in the winter and spring, just like California. ...
