    As Cheryl is still sleeping I thought I would throw my two penny worth in and do the blog today. You will notice it's shorter than Cheryl's and probably has spelling mistakes. We had planned to share the responsibility of writing it but I don't think she trusts me so while she's asleep......

    Well the day started as a 'chill' day waiting …

    So today I woke up feeling surprisingly fresh! Success! However, the weather was abysmal. The rain was torrential and completely out a downer on our plans to go and see the glacier. After waiting for the worst to knock off, in the end we just went for a break in the storm and headed in for breakfast. Surprisingly everyone from last night was round the table together, discussing how bad their heads were over cereal and toast. The boys were checking out so we said our goodbyes and ...

Our next destination, and a city I had ...

    ... yow! Definitely the calves win out on this event. Both Ben and I have been hobbling around in between bouts of sitting still. If you just looked at our calves, they hurt.

    On the morning after we hiked up to Mueller's Hut, we drove to Christchurch. We stayed two nights, but the weather was rainy and cloudy and cold and to be honest, we were two hurting units. We rested and went out to ...

    ... so in our minds we were still able to go for our walk to explore Franz Josef and that is what we did. We are from England after all and a little rain never hurt anyone. We decided to explore the Tatare Tunnels and began walking through what seemed like a tropical rainforest. There was an autumn feel to our walk as we saw the brown leaves on the ground. It is such a beautiful season and we were in high spirits despite the rain. As per usual, time just flew by and we walked and ...
