... they had been well and truly shocked that we were 21 and 22, apparently we look 15. Great. We left the trail at the car park and decided to walk back on the raid in the drizzle as it would be a bit faster. This is where the same Thai family pulled over their 2 hire cars and told us to get in and they gave us a lift back to town! What absolutes gems! We had a bit of a conversation with the grandparents and parents who's car we were in. Mainly about what we were doing and where ...

... the Rings tour to go out and see some of the filming locations.

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

... We stopped at the activity booking place on the way. But due to the glacier walks with a helicopter drop off, being around 300 dollars, we decided to do one of the free bush walks the following day which meant we at least got to see a good view of the glacier. But when we arrived at the rainforest holiday village that we were staying at for the two night, we all put down our bags, and headed straight to the free hot tub - which ...

Travelling Franz Josef

A travel blog entry by expendabelles on Apr 10, 2015

... cheap! The guide explained what we needed to wear, what to bring and we all signed up for different sessions. Luckily we managed to all be in the same group, along with CJ, Matt and Emil. Wazza then dropped us all off at our hostel 'Rainforest Retreat' where we were warmly welcomed by the owner and waited to be checked-in. Comme d'habitude, we were the last ones to be checked-in. He informed us that we weren't going to be together in a dorm and ...
