      Good place to stay. Owner quite helpful. No cooking facilities in the room but has a reasonable BBQ area.

      Another amazing day, in most ways. We woke to great weather and what looks like by far the best day for weather in the middle of a set of rainy days (like yesterday). We have therefore been very fortunate for our helicopter ride today. Unfortunately for Trish, however, she stubbed her toe in the middle of of the night and it looks badly bruised. …

      The last night in Nelson, we bought a pavlova from the grocery store and decorated it for dessert. It was definitely one of the best pavlova.

      Drove from Nelson to FranzJosef, new rental car drove much better than the old one. We stopped at Punakaiki to see the pancake rocks and blowhole. Even at low tide, they were amazing.

About two hours later the photographers were surprised we were still there, and they asked us and an American to be in the background of some shots. So we were there for another hour, until we decided we were so prune-like it was best to leave. We've spent the evening planning the next few days - time is running away too fast! Who decided a month would be long ...

      ... glaciers in the distance was epic. We pulled onto Cron Street off Highway 6 and parked up at the Franz Glacier camper van park, we paid for a powered site costing us $29 for the night. After a little bit of dinner courtesy of our kitchenette we drove round the corner to the Glacier Hot Pools!! It cost us $44 to go in but it was so worth it, we got straight into the 40 degree pool which was steaming! The pools are surrounded by native plants and ...
