    South Island Trip - day 5

    A travel blog entry by choward14 on Jul 24, 2015

    ... actually saw a couple while we were there, which was scary but amazing! Anyway, back to my umbrella shaped ice, it was sort of like a cave, we got to go in, on our backs and then crawl up through a hole in the ice on the other side, pulling ourselves up a rope, it was tight it was kind of like a re-birthing process. I felt like a new woman at the other side! After this, we explored the ice more, went through paths in the ice, through ice pools, it ...

    ... and return them). The kids located one on the bottom and had it nibbling the bait, but Tash was a bit reluctant to actually pull it up, so I slowly wound it in with Ed on net duty.

We was on the ice for 3 hours finding many more ...

We moved on to the last one where we wallowed for a while until Rach joined us with Christian. We stayed for a bit longer before heading back to the hostel and cooking dinner. After this we all used the wifi to Skype/ FaceTime and then headed to bed ready for another early start tomorrow. ...

    Day 196 Our quest today was to see the Fox Glacier, one of the two most famous glaciers in New Zealand (amongst tourists at least), named after a 19th Century Kiwi prime minister. On our way to the car park, we passed a lake nestled between the mountains and the raised roadway. On its bed were near fluorescent blues and greens. The track to the viewing point near the glacier face was a short one but was challenging as it consisted ...
