    ... to the village and sat in a coffee shop in front of their huge picture window having an organic apple juice and a friend when, out of the blue ( or maybe into the blue) the clouds broke and for fifteen minutes Aoraki was in full view in all its awesome glory. In a strange sort of way I feel blessed.

    I'm settling down for the evening in Twizel at a powered site (so much luxury compared to ...

    ... with snow capped mountains across the lake and back behind us trees around our campervan.

    Some pre-dinner white wine and cheese/crackers made for a bit of class and after dinner (roast pork belly) we put the boys to bed with 5mins on their iPads and then watched Pt II of the James Bond movie from last night. Again, didn’t make it to the end. Oh well. Went to sleep wondering how many more camp spots like this one we would stay at. ...

We had to hike a fair way, all uphill, to the viewpoint, but it was well worth it, as the view to Tasman glacier was clear.

    An early start to check in for the scenic helicopter flight at Franz Josef at 8.30. Sadly there was still low cloud, so although we waited til 11.15, there was no chance of a flight today. What a shame. Still, we have learnt quite a bit about glaciers, seen all the souvenirs in the gift shops and had several cups of coffee! The next part of our adventure took us further down the west coast to Haast and then through the Haast pass. You really can do the sea and mountains on ...

    ... stepped outside onto the balcony to train their lenses on the mountain during the evening. Next morning was also a perfect bright sunny day and the mountains were clear. We had booked to go on a trip to the Tasman lake and glacier and the weather was perfect, if a little windy. Lake Tekapo was also a fantastic colour blue, perhaps slightly less unusual than Pukaki but set against the dried and dusty ...
