    The rain we heard during the night had just about gone off when we left Westport at 8.30 am. When I gave back the key the host said that it was likely to be poor weather all down the coast, almost all day in fact. As this is meant to be one of the most scenic drives in the country, it was even more disappointing to find that slightly further down …

    South Island Trip - day 5

    A travel blog entry by choward14 on Jul 24, 2015

    ... we managed, then we got stuck straight in! There was an area of ice that made a kind of umberella, where the ice had buckled because of the compression. This is probably a good time to mention that Franz Josef is a fast moving glacier, the ice moves up to 5 metres PER DAY! Scary business. But apparently the guides have meetings every day and they know where the ice falls are going to be, so they can plan the trip around them, keeping everyone very ...

    ... in the sky! We went to the glacier tour centre and got kitted out in our glacier walking gear, water proof trousers, big water proof jacket, hats, gloves, big walking boots and cramp on spike that go on the bottom of the boots to walk on the ice. Before we could walk on the glacier we had to get there and this was quite possibly one of the things we was most looking forward to. We would get a helicopter up and land on the glacier and with both of us being helicopter virgins this ...

    ... had been warning us about. We took the opportunity to take a lot of photos before having a quick picnic lunch and heading back through the valley. Here we waited to be picked up by the shuttle bus and taken back into Franz Josef where Rach, Christian and I headed to the supermarket where we were caught in the infamous bad weather we had been warned about all day. Soaking wet we returned to the hostel and played some cards while ...
