Franz Josef - Wanaka

We left Franz Josef this morning for another long drive to Wanaka, today would be about 4-5hrs on the road depending on how many times we felt compelled to stop and look at scenery! Not long into our drive we stopped to check out Fox Glacier, about 20kms out of Franz Josef, and we took the walking path along the glacial bed towards the face. At Fox you can get a little closer than at Franz Josef, only 200m from the face at the closest ...

The colours of Wanaka

I caught a bus out of Queenstown to a nearby lakeside town, arrived to gusty winds and howling rain, had a nap and awoke to one of the most beautiful places on Earth, bathed in bright sunshine- Wanaka. For two days I fell in love with yet more of NZ in this special little place.

Now it was 11:55 and all the people that would have been waiting to hop on the 12:00 bus turned up and they too got on. I was sat there so frustrated that I stormed off and got a taxi. Of course the bus pulled away as soon as I got off and yes I know hind sight is a wonderful thing but I don't have the patience for that! I ranted to the poor taxi man who just agreed ...

Night out Queenstown style

So last night Dais and I had some visitors from Dunedin pay us a visit. We met these two friendly Kiwi boys there when we went to watch the rugby a few months back and kept in contact with them. They said they were coming to Queenstown and we thought it would be rude not to see them. We invited them to ours for some pre-drinks and games and we had such a laugh. So much so that we were pretty sure we would get evicted for making so much noise. Both the boys were called Matt which ...
