      I really enjoyed this hotel, the view of the mountains was beautiful and the reception desk was really friendly and helpful. It is located on the main road and close to the hot pools and some amazing restaurants.

I braved the open air car for most of the way but so worth it! After leaving thr train behind at Arthur's Pass, we headed to Hokitika for a walk on the beach. And then on to Franz Josef Glacier. Wow!

      ... of seconds we would be falling to earth. Suresh and I looked at each other for last minute comfort.......

      Before I knew it, Suresh had disappeared into the clouds, and then it was my turn to jump from the aircraft. The feeling was unreal and one that literally took our breath away. Falling at 120mph, initially above thick clouds, then through the clouds and finally on the other side of the clouds where we could see the earth below us!!! I couldn't even hear ...
