    ... ago. I find it hard to see how anyone can be a climate skeptic at all, but especially after seeing this rapid decline, I know there are local conditions at play, and you can’t judge climate change on one location, but it’s part of a global pattern. Next stop was Lake Matheson. The lake there has stunning views of Mt Cook, refleted in the water to near perfection when the weather is just right. It is a classic NZ image, and I wasn’t thinking I would try it, except that ...

    ... through the flight. We could see the coast and everything in between. Now I want to be a helicopter pilot! When I become rich, I want to learn how to do so many things.

    ... to such a memorable adventure. Our journey back to Christchurch on the fourth day of the long weekend started with a ride with two other English girls we had met the previous day and then a bus from Greymouth through the mountains.

    This morning I woke up and was a bag of nerves, as much as I'm excited about the a glacier hike, I am TERRIFIED of the helicopter part...! I made my way into town (the town is tiny - but lovely, there's probably about 5 restaurants, 2 proper pubs, and one supermarket) in the dark and went for an early breakfast. When I walked out of the cafe,I'm almost fell flat on my face, because when I looked up, right there in front of me was FRANZ JOSEF GLACIER! I ...

    ... build the road South,started in 1905 and finished in 1965. The last 10km took 2 years which is no surprise as the mountainous road had rockfall evidence everywhere and the viewing platform was fenced off due to subsidence which we could see by the cracks in the Tarmac by it. In the next town marked on the map which appeared to be two houses,a cafe and a bridge we bought some local smoked salmon and pate. We could see the fish tanks right by the cafe. We stopped for ...
